‘Inside Edition to Film’ Winners of Ripley’s “Trashy Fashion Show”

Popular TV show “Inside Edition” is filming winners of  St. Augustine Ripley’s “Trashy Fashion Show”.

St. Augustine Ripley’s “Trashy Fashion Show” has captured the eyes of the world.  The winners have been featured in publications both nationally and internationally. On Friday, March 30th, at 5:00 pm, the TV show “Inside Edition” will be in St. Augustine to film the winners. Ripley’s “Trashy Fashion Show” took place on Saturday, March 24th and produced three winners and three new exhibits that will go on display at Ripley’s museum in St Augustine, Florida. Teen and “tween” designers swept the competition, winning all three categories.

Amani Grant’s creation modeled by Analise Barnard won first prize in the twelve and under division for their dress entitled “High Energy.” The party dress and headband were created entirely from coffee filters. The over the shoulder mini dress model entered the cat walk partially concealing the gown with a cape made of trash bags. The cape was shed and the amazing dress revealed.  Amani won $100 for her efforts and Ripley’s paid her another $100 to acquire the dress.

Kennedy Truster, age 15 won the student prize of $100 for her party dress made entirely out of newspaper. The sleeveless top was adorned with newspaper flowers and ruffles while the skirt was triple-tiered with hundreds of pleated paper sections. Ripley’s also acquired this dress for an additional $100.

The 17 and up category was won by Masha Sardari who had two entries. The first was a formal, knee length gown made from used paint brushes and paper bags. Her second entry was a cocktail dress made from a used shower curtain. Ultimately, it was her first gown that took the prize. She too won $100 and Ripley’s acquired the dress for display for another $100.

Other entries included dresses made from magazines, bottle caps, grocery bags, paper cups, snack wrappers, trading cards and magazines.

Inside Edition will be shooting the show Friday, March 30th at 5:00 PM at Ripley’s Museum on 19 San Marco Ave. No air date has been announced yet.
