At least that’s what organizers of the Lake County Library System’s annual Trash to Fashion Show Contest hope.
The fashion show, scheduled Oct. 18 inside Mount Dora’s W.T. Bland Public Library, is a fun competition of wearable art and avant-garde fashion created out of trash. Participants from 8–19 are eligible to compete in the event and are judged on originality, creative use of materials and craftsmanship.
Entries can be obtained at one of the 15 public libraries in the Lake County Library System or downloaded at mylakelibrary.org. The entry deadline is Oct. 6.
