Project Earth Day Fashion Show

By guest-blogger Josh Wiese


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
