The inaugural Salamander Bay Recycling Trashion Show went ahead without too many costume malfunctions on Mother’s Day (Sunday 9th of May).
The level of imagination incorporated by the designers, as well as the quality of each outfit was very high indeed.
In total, 15 designers contributed 23 outfits; some were modelled by the designers themselves and others were worn by very professional-looking amateur models.
The competition’s categories were Glamour, Street Sass and Millinery.
Thanks go to Lyn Vatner of the Yacaaba Centre, Rebecca Cavanagh from Salamander Bay Recycling and Metta Henderson for their judging prowess.
Many thanks to the Henderson family; in particular Metta and her husband Frank for their significant contribution in helping to organise the event.
And of course, where would a Trashion Show be without it’s (Alley) catwalk stars? Thank you to all entrants, we could not have done it without you.
Via gold-coin donations and takings from the sausage-sizzle sales, we managed to raise over $200 for the Nelson Bay Yacaaba Centre’s Women’s Refuge. Salamander Bay Recycling doubled the amount, so in the end Nelson Bay Yacaaba Centre will be the recipient of a cheque for $413.00.
Photographs of the day have been compiled in a music video montage. Feel free to click on the attachment below, sit back and watch a very successful day’s proceedings unfold.
The Trashion Show will be back in 2011; bigger and better than this first version… so spread the word and look out for entry details coming up in the new year.
