Model Deborah Waters gets help fastening her dress made with 56 water bottles and 315 bottle caps.

21 Saturday

Trashy Fashion Show: Bustiers made from gum wrappers, miniskirts adorned with pop tops and sheer blouses created with discarded linens. Expect to see all this and more on Saturday night during Largo's fifth annual Trashy Fashion Show at the Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive. More than 30 models will prance along the 27-foot catwalk looking gorgeous in their garbage. Since 2008, the city of Largo has celebrated Earth Day by holding the Trashy Fashion Show. Participants are amateur designers of all ages who make their entries — their "trashions'' — from reused or recycled materials.

A $15 ticket is required for the main event, which will start at 6 p.m. However the public is also invited to attend the "Largoing Green Expo'' from noon to 6 p.m., a free event featuring businesses and organizations with a focus on sustainable environmental practices. For information, call (727) 587-6793 or visit largoarts.com.
