“Trashy but Flashy” Fashion Show

“Trashy but Flashy” fashion show was held on February 24th 2013  during the Home Improvement Show  at the  Myrtle Beach Convention Center to benefit the Hope House of Myrtle Beach. The mission of this non profit organization is to provide a healthy environment for homeless and less fortunate students of Myrtle Beach High School.

Diane DeVaughn Stokes, a popular personality of television and radio in the Grand Strand, is the person behind this charity event. She is the producer and the host of the second annual “Trashy but Flashy” fashion show. Her vivid personality and love of life is magically passed onto all her  listeners of her radio show “Diane at six” on Easy FM.  I love her unique voice and I always listen to her radio show in my spare time.

Other representative of the media joined the event, showcasing creative outfits made entirely from recycled materials. “Trash to couture” turns trash in wearable treasures  and converts old clothing into fashionable new outfits.

The final look

These amazing masterpieces made from recycled materials are proof that one person’s trash can become another person’s treasure. Newspapers, plastic trash bags, and coffee filters, rustled down the runaway along with old sweaters, man suit and ties re-purposed into fashionable outfits.  ” Trashy but flashy” fashion show opened a unique perspective on recycling materials for the purpose of  creating truly recycled couture.
