The Town of North Hempstead will once once again be hosting the fourth annual Trashion Show at the “Yes We Can” Community Center on Thursday, Jan. 28, from 7 to 9 p.m. This year’s event is sponsored by NEFCU and Sustainable Long Island.
Designed to spread the powerful message of Recycle, Reuse and Rethink, the annual contest invites students to create wearable fashion using reclaimed materials. In addition to focusing on the importance of recycling, the Trashion Show showcases students’ work and creativity. Students are then invited to model their creations on the runway at the Platinum-LEED Certified ‘Yes We Can’ Community Center. In addition to the show, the winning designs will be displayed in the gallery of the center.
If you’d like to participate this year, please submit your entry by 4 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 14 to either the ‘Yes We Can’ Community Center (141 Garden St., Westbury, NY 11590) or the Town’s Solid Waste Management Authority (802 West Shore Road, Port Washington, NY 11050).
