The Afterlife: Call for Entries

afterlife

If you’re an eco-minded fashion designer, The Afterlife is the event of the year to participate in! AIGA San Francisco is currently rounding up green artists/fashion designers/graphic designers to participate in its 2007 Gala event with the main focus being a recycled paper fashion show/auction.

Help rescue paper from recycling limbo with a benefit auction of post-consumer paper apparel and objects d’art by some of the Bay Area’s great designers. We’ll also have a runway show, a DJ and lots of giveaways from our industry sponsors. Don’t miss it. And remember, the road to hell is paved with wasted paper.

All submissions must be made from a recycled paper product (paper that’s used before). The deadline for submission (preliminary sketches) is September 29th, 2007, so sign up or pass this on to anyone who might like to participate. Proceeds go to AIGA San Francisco.

  1. Paper recycling is a multi million dollar industry tied up with the timber industry.
    Sustainable wood is the only course and paper recycling definitely helps.cheers

  2. Sustainable wood is still wood. Tree farms are not forests… 5000 years of human culture made paper from hemp… many countries still do… it’s time America did too! This said, how about this idea… For this project, use paper from magazines who already use recycled paper stock… you’ll find a good list here: http://www.remyc.com/paperproject.html The Magazine Paper Project will be hosting a discussion panel at the magazine industry professionals Folio show in New York on September 24th… If you’re in town, please attend.
