Getting Catty


There’s an exhaustive review of the Catwalk on the Wild Side event over at Treehugger. Unfortunately we were not able to cover this party/ecofashion show, so we will have to rely on their take on it. But suffice to say, it wasn’t all greenlovin’ at this eco-fashion extravanganza which was, apparently, underwhelming.

Though eco-fashion was one of the stated goals of Saturday’s event, too many objectives weighed the evening down and made it aesthetically and tonally conflicted.

Ouch!! Two commenters backed up the report, so methinks there is some validity to it. The organization behind the event seems to have some admirable goals, and it was part of the UN World Environment Day celebrations so….better luck next year?.
