The results are in from the Trashy but Flashy fashion show, held on Sunday, April 22.

Lights lined the runway, and a DJ and photographer were at the ready, as the 21 participants waited backstage for the MC to called them on stage for the sixth annual Trashy but Flashy Fashion Show.

“We were so excited to see the response from the community this year,” said Dawn Deydey, Wildsight’s Community Program Coordinator.

“We had more costumes than in year’s past and the effort that was put into them was absolutely inspiring.”

The excitement for this event started building early in the month when local stores including Grow, Ghostrider Trading Company, Big Bang Bagels, Giv’er Shirtworks, Beanpod, and Heaven and Stitch showcased past years costumes in their store front windows.

The Earth Day excitement began on Saturday April 21 with a showcase of Martin Scorcese’s film Surviving Progress and a Green Drinks bar that featured delicious locally inspired drinks. DJ Friendly Fire provided great grooves that inspired dancing and great times were had by all. Sunday activities included a Seed Swap, the Trashy but Flashy Fashion Show and a Freecycle event.  Throughout the weekend school projects were also highlighted including Fernie Secondary’s Paint the Town for Fish and Isabella Dicken’s Trash to Treasure projects.
