Mother Earth Inspirations: Earth Day Eco-Fashion Show
Sexy, sustainable fashion.
WASHINGTON, DC (March 18, 2011) – How do we honor Earth Day? Some
people resolve to start recycling more, greenies update their Facebook
status with sustainable tips, article links and witty green-inspired
comments, businesses show their corporate social responsibility in the
form of events and outreach to their staff, and our nation’s capital
holds a large Earth Day celebration on the National Mall…
Rather than limit our recognition to one day, we can reduce our carbon
footprint throughout the year by incorporating sustainable habits into
our daily routine, such as shopping more sustainably – beginning with
our wardrobe. “Green fashion” doesn’t necessarily mean bamboo tees and
hemp shorts. Go green with a growing list of emerging designers who
use alternative fabrics and/or toxic-free production methods to
produce stylish, innovative, and functional apparel, shoes, and
accessories. Carbon boutique can help you get started.
Join us on Friday, April 22, 2011 from 6:00pm-9:00pm at Carbon located
at 2643 Connecticut Ave NW in Woodley Park for an eco-fashion
experience. Meet Auralis Herrero, of Auralis Studios, a New York-based
eco-fashion artist featured in New York Fashion Week September 2010.
