RECYCLED FASHION One person’s trash is indeed another person’s treasure as the recent Green Festival Trashion Show proved. The show in Queensgate supported by ESP aimed to show you how you can breathe new life into old clothes, recycle and refashion items into new looks. The Trashion Show was staged and organised by the City College Peterborough (formerly the Adult Education College) and featured a range of vintage items that are part of their collection, clothes from local charity shops as well as outfits created by college students. The show was compered by our own Sarah Tempest while Face of ESP Tori Bradshaw and ESP’s Becca Evans and Mikey Clarke took to the catwalk and had a great time showing just how good you can look in items that have been revamped. There was more fashion recycling at the Swish clothes swap at Thorpe Hall which was another huge success at this year’s Green Festival.

In this age of disposal fashion do the decent thing and give charity shops a chance – you’ll be surprised what you can find for a decent price! The Vintage And Retro shop on Bridge Street has some great pieces and raises cash for Sue Ryder Care so you can feel doubly good about shopping there.
If you’d like to learn about dress making and refashioning your own pieces there are loads of courses available at the City College and the new prospectus is out now. If you’d like to get involved in the next Trashion Show contact organiser Lindsey Holmes on firstname.lastname@example.org. www.es p m ag .co.u k ( July )
