Trashion Fashion Show
Inventive and fashionable garments made from recyclable materials were a huge hit
with the crowds at the Chandler Fashion Center on Saturday, May 21, when designers
modeled their unique creations during Chandler’s Trashion Fashion Show.

Fifteen entries from 14 designers were judged for their creativity, design, craftsmanship
and an environmental fact each contestant provided with their entry.

The winner in the Adult (18+) category was Terrilynn Perry, who modeled a wedding
gown made with 132 plastic garbage bags sewn to a paper and plastic disposable
drop cloth.  An accompanying hairpiece was made from caution tape, wire hangers,
PVC pipe, cardboard, aluminum cans and plastic containers.

Kieren Haven designed the winning garment in the 14-17 category, which was modeled
by friend Alexa Sanchez and made with a recycled bed sheet, VHS tape and used CDs.

Holly Hoogstra took first place in the 10-13 age category, modeling the gown she made
from a vinyl sheet from a Twister game. An accompanying purse was made from the
game box and the headpiece from the game’s spinner wheel.
