Turning Green Fashion Show




We weren't feeling so great today with the gloomy skies, but our days got a lot brighter when we went to the Turning Green Fashion Show presented by Whole Foods and Teens for Safe Cosmetics. We were really excited to be one of the designers invited to present at the fashion show, so we definitely wanted to swing by and show our support.

When we walked in, we were greeted by a fantastic crowd (who managed to get all the way downtown despite the weather) and a life size poster of our Alison dress. Then when we looked inside the program, the Alison was featured again as an opening image. How nice!

The show was extremely well produced, in large part to eco-celeb Bahar Shahpar whose cute outfit was topped off by her headset. Speaking of people watching, we were excited by the great turnout- in the audience were Josh Dorfman of the Lazy Environmentalist, Tierra Del Forte (Del Forte Denim), host Zem Joaquin (Domino mag's Green Editor + ecofabulous blogger) and John Masters (John Masters Organics).

We're excited that the green movement is catching on and encouraged that even younger generations are getting involved. It definitely makes for a better tomorrow (which right now we're wishing were sunny and 70). But one step at a time.

p.s. Check out the great re-usable bag from Whole Foods and SIGG bottle that we received as a gift (which you can get a similar one here). Two more things that we'll be making room for in our own bags.
