Restyle - 1st August

Posted 10 years, 11 months ago    0 comments

ReStyle 09 finalists are hitting the catwalk this Saturday [1 August] for the judging and awards night. (formerly Trash to Fashion)
Fashion, art and waste will merge as one and be theatrically presented through a spectacular display of stunning music, dance and light, with local musical talent and dancers taking to the stage.

Interestingly, while the spotlight will be on the fashion making its way down the catwalk, members of the audience are also invited to play a part by delving into their own wardrobes!


Attendees at this year’s ReStyle 09 are able to clear some space in their wardrobes, quench their thirsts and earn some good karma points at the same time as part of a novel initiative!

In conjunction with Montana Catering, ReStyle 09 is supporting Women’s Refuge by encouraging attendees to bring along any items of clothing they no longer wear or need, and donating them to this worthy cause. As well as the good feeling you’ll get from knowing you’ve helped Women’s Refuge, in return for the donation you will also receive a glass of wine (ID required) or a non-alcoholic beverage to enjoy during the show.

Hamilton Mayor Bob Simcock said it is great to see a vibrant local event that is so clearly demonstrating the values and vision of the city.

“ReStyle celebrates and nurtures our up-and-coming Hamilton talent and that is what Hamilton’s Creativity and Identity Strategy is all about,” he said. “ReStyle is also a platform for raising awareness of waste minimisation, and is now adding yet another dimension to the show by putting its support behind a great cause, Women’s Refuge.”

Formally known as Trash to Fashion, ReStyle 09 has this year received a record number of entries, smashing the previous record.

A new judge for 2009 will be TV personality and Earth Hour ambassador Bridgette O'Sullivan, who will put her 'fashion in the field' expertise to a different use, while returning as judges again this year are Barrie Thomas from The Body Shop, and Kate Monahan, Tempo editor from the Waikato Times.
