Earth week festivities continued on Tuesday night with the Trashy but Flashy fashion show at the Fernie Community Centre.

This is the fifth year for the green inspired show.

Local artists, designers and eager participants were encouraged to show how re-using can be fashionable.

Some of the couture included plastic bags, empty beverage cans and cardboard from cracker boxes.

Despite the fashion show’s emphasis on reducing and reusing, it embraced the true spirit of high fashion by including lights, make up artists, hair stylists and DJ Doors.
