Trash to Fashion celebrates its 10th Anniversary

In 2005 TRASH TO FASHION® celebrates its 10th Anniversary with a theme that embraces Kiwi Culture. This is not just fashion – The Trusts Trash to Fashion® Awards allows its entrants to unleash some of that famous ‘kiwi ingenuity’ into their garment design, and we in turn, bring it all alive on the enormous stage and catwalk at The Trusts Stadium, Central Park Drive, Henderson, Waitakere City on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th November 2005!

You will experience 9 categories - yes that’s right, we have had to include a second glamour category this year in order to showcase all the garments we have received in the All Black, and Ladies a Plate section.

The Trusts Trash to Fashion® attracts a large number of participants from all over New Zealand. Emerging and established designers are joined by entrants from a variety of age-groups, cultures and abilities. In addition the showcase features a core cast of 25-30 professional dancers and models, a large number of Waitakere and Auckland based performance artists, as well as a selection of special celebrity guests, some of whom will appear in the unique audio visual component of the show.

Trash to Fashion® is a spectacular and highly theatrical event. The catwalk is littered with stunning and highly inventive costumes created out of recycled, inorganic and organic materials. Created in the spirit of fun these striking creations carry with them an important social message. To recycle, reuse and ultimately reduce waste.

Don’t miss out on the chance to be a part of the celebrations this year.

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>

Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
