SOLD OUT - Trashion Fashion - March 7, 2020 - WAS A BIG SUCCESS! THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

  

Trashion Fashion Extravaganza Sponsored by the Anthony Wayne Area Arts Commission

  

The winner  was  Laura Decsman. Her design team includes Kristina Frederickson, Kate Hatas, Marilyn Wagoner, and Lynne Santus.   

Laura’s outfit is made of several un-used surgical drape sheets that would have otherwise been incinerated, thus sending countless chemicals into the air we breathe. The fish scales are made from paint chips, plastic sheets and doggy treat bags – all recyclable materials. The head dress she is wearing is a plastic x-ray cassette bag which is adorned with more fish scales. Her shawl is composed of bubble wrap. The jewelry is designed with used beads and fishing lures, making her just about ready for the Maumee River Walleye Run. Here is hoping we all get on the recycling bandwagon to keep our environment clean.


It was a close contest and we want to congratulation all the contestants:    Michelle Pelton, Charlene Gary,  Kay-Lynne Schaller,  Starbuck Rodger and his design team includes Melanie Sears, Ben Devorss, and Lynn Somogye from Bittersweet Farms,  Wendy Gray and her design team Brittany Miller and Courtney Gray from 3rd Street Blooms,  Mackinzie Spencer,   Olivia Wiczynski,   Babs and her design team Aggie Alt from the Old House.
