A few weeks back, o2NYC teamed up with Kaight to host a reception in honor of Project Earth Day . It was a great event filled with compelling conversation, surrounded by beautiful clothes, and saturated in Trader Joe’s best three-dollar wine.

The Project Earth Day fashion show, scheduled for this Thursday night, is a “showcase of hot, emerging designers on the green scene, and the future of fashion. The runway show will feature a stunning display of the latest apparel and textile designs in eco-friendly recycled fibers and found materials.” A display anticipated to be so stunning, that every guest seat in the runway showroom is filled.

The lucky few with seats will see some of the latest recycled threads from AuH20 and SDN; vegan shoes from Charmone; sustainable design from Ekovaruhuset, Covet, Doie, accessories by AgainNYC and many more.

See Eco Chick’s coverage of some of Project Earth Day’s participators like AgainNYC, Doie and Terra Plana .

For those of you just hearing about the show now, you can still kick off your Earth Day celebration in style by coming to the after-party at Myst from 9pm-2am (free drinks from 9-10).

The event is organized by USGBC Emerging Green Builders NY

  1. For Immediate Release
    April 2007

    Got a s(eco)nd?

    This August 27-29th in Las Vegas , Pooltradeshow will launch a new area entitled s(eco)nd that will focus on the new breed of environmentally & socially conscious organizations that are emerging world-wide. s(eco)nd will take place in conjunction with Pool in Las Vegas .

    Pool, the incubator of new & emerging lifestyle fashion, began as a non-traditional forum to fulfill a need for the specialty market. For the last 6 years, Pool has been a place where key retailers connect with innovative apparel & lifestyle designers. Now, Pool is introducing a new branch that will fulfill a need in the industry for the new generation of consciousness. s(eco)nd will showcase the best new talents who are also making a positive impact on our world.

    Director of Operations for Pool & creator of s(eco)nd, Mindy Wiener says “ Now, we have an opportunity to lead by example on what is seemingly THE issue of our time. True visionaries such as Fred Segal tried to introduce this concept over a decade ago but he was too far ahead of the market. We recognize that timing is very important in the Fashion Industry. We’ve been working to raise awareness for the last few seasons but have not felt like the timing was quite right to take a stand. Now, there is no doubt that (people) businesses have become more aware & are implementing changes that are impacting the industry. By introducing the thought that it only takes a s(eco)nd to change the world, s(eco)nd will allow us to take a second look at how we do business and will encourage our audience to rethink their most basic day-to-day habits. We are proud to take a stand, paving the way to greater change.”

    s(eco)nd will carefully hand-select each of its launch brands.
