Fun night celebrating Eco-Fashion!
A few weekends ago, I attended the Sol Inspirations Eco-Fashion Gala & Fundraiser! The fashion designers created eco-friendly fashions to compete for a $5000 prize. They created 3 looks using non-traditional fabrics, recycled materials or up-cycled clothing, and sustainable fabrics. Also 1 of their looks had to incorporate solar panels. There were some familiar faces from Project Runway! Seth Aaron Henderson (7th season winner of Project Runway) was headlining and judging. Contestants included Christopher Straub and Ra'Mon Lawrence Colmeman (Project Runway finalists) as well as Allison Helliwell, Tara Latour, Atom Peachman & Jenn Bratovold, and Niki English. In the end the prise went to Christopher Straub. It was a fun night! The fashion ranged from wearable to ART only - Here are some of my favorites!
