Trashion Show 2012

Trashion Show 2012

Last weekend saw the return of the Moreton Hall Trashion Show - but this year with a difference. The Eco team were tasked with re-vamping the event and moved the focus to one of responsible fashion and sustainability.  Dr. Hindson gave an introduction to encourage girls to think about how sustainable their clothes shopping and wearing is or could be.  The end results were some fabulous and eco-friendly designs.  

In the Middle School two costumes stood out.  The judges, Dr. Hindson on Sustainability, Mrs Langford on Creativity and Design and Olivia Knight on Marketability, chose Lily Mainwaring and Katie Bibby both from Vincent.  In the older category Grace Hacking from Vincent stole the show with her upcycling of Edwardian fashion.  

The winning division overall however was Roberts which had shown the most thought in how their clothes were sourced and used. The winning division receives a hamper of Fair Trade goodies.

Huge thanks to Miriam Chapman, Georgina Latham and Maddie Rolfe from Eco Team who organised the event and to the judges and girls who gave up their time.  Also thanks to Kitty Robinson and her team in Moreton Enterprises who sold fair-trade refreshments and who are making a donation from their takings to the Eco team charities.
