Think those Starburst wrappers or Doritos bags are just trash?
With a bit of neon duck tape or some good folding skills those vibrantly colored items could be transformed into a garment of at least comical fashion appeal.
Organizers of Tryon’s Trashion Show encourage you to put your fashion design skills to the test by creating a one-of-a-kind outfit from recycled materials.
The annual Trashion Show, in conjunction with Tryon’s April Fool’s Festival, will be held Saturday, March 31 at 4 p.m. Contestants and interested audiences are encouraged to come to the Tryon Depot Plaza for this unique fashion show.
Throughout the day of the festival community members can even stop by a booth hosted by the Tryon Daily Bulletin to craft garments onsite from recycled newspaper and few other items that will be supplied.
