Baltimore, MD (May 4, 2018)Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Baltimore is hosting a Trashy Fashion show on Saturday, May 26th. The show starts at 1pm and is FREE for the public.

On May 26th, Ripley’s will be holding a Trashy Fashion show where these trashy designs will get a chance to make their runway debut. The challenge for these contestants is simple: create a wearable design that is made from trash and recycled materials. There will be a panel of judges who will score based on creative use of material, overall design, model’s runway walk, and garment movability.

The contestants are competing for some amazing prizes. The Grand Prize winner will receive $1,000. The first runner up will receive $500, and the second runner up will win $250. All contestants will receive a Ripley’s swag bag of unbelievable Ripley’s merchandise.

All winners will become a “Ripley Feature” and appear on Ripley’s social media and featured on their popular blog. There is also the possibility of being highlighted in their best-selling book and the winning garment becoming a permanent exhibit displayed in a Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditorium.
