The Tatura All Saints Anglican Church fundraiser Fashions Made From Trash event was hailed a great success where there was an array of clothing made from varied recycled items.

Event organiser Glenda McLeod said the evening was lots of fun.

‘‘There was a good crowd and lots of fun followed by a lovely supper,’’ Ms McLeod said.

With participants encouraged to create their own up-cycled clothing, jewellery, accessories and homewares, the creative seamstresses strutted their designs on the catwalk on the night.

‘‘There were also many tables of items made from recycled items,’’ Ms McLeod said.

Ms McLeod said it had been an environmental program she took part in with Lions Victoria a few years go that prompted her to come up with the idea, with proceedings from the night going to the Anglican Church.

‘‘I did some of this sort of stuff and it had been on my mind for years to do an event like this,’’ she said.

She said the big success of the evening was all the items made from soft drink cans.

‘‘Many of the items were (also) for sale,’’ she said.

Ms McLeod extended a huge thank you to all who made items for the event and attended on the night.
