If You Love "Project Runway," Fashion and The Earth...
SOL INSPIRATIONS Eco-Fashion Gala & Fundraiser. With three stars of Project Runway: Season 7 Winner Seth Aaron, Fan Favorite Christopher Straub and Finalist Ra'mon-Lawrence Coleman, it will be Minneapolis' chance to watch these talented designers "make it work" live during several high impact runway shows. If you buy a VIP ticket you can attend the VIP Reception/Meet & Greet with Seth Aaron that starts at 6 pm. General Admission doors open at 7 pm and the program will start at 8 pm with an eco-fashion show featuring Ignite models and local designers KathrynV, CounterCouture, Jenny Carle and Renalie Bailey.
Then we'll move on to the Design Competition with a $5,000 cash prize at stake and a fierce group of designers that includes two "Project Runway" finalists, a designer who showed her first collection during New York Fashion Week, independent clothing label owners and Twin Cities designers who have been making eco-conscious clothing for years. The finalists are: "Project Runway" Finalists Christopher Straub and Ra'mon-Lawrence Coleman, Allison Helliwell of Allilamodie Designs, Tara Latour of Tara Latour Designs, Co-Designers Atom Pechman & Jenn Bratvold and Niki English. Each designer will create three looks: Look 1 must incorporate non-traditional fabrics, Look 2 must incorporate recycled materials or up-cycled clothing, Look 3 must incorporate sustainable fabrics, and one of the looks must use solar panels.
The final runway show of the evening will feature Project Runway Season 7 Winner Seth Aaron Henderson showcasing his SolarWorld collection - as seen in last fall's Portland Fashion Week - during the exhilarating eco-fashion runway show.
Along with beats by DJ Shiek, Eco-Tinis, Green Vendors and Exhibits and Silent Auction all to benefit the Minnesota Renewable Energy Society and to help Haiti rebuild, it is going to be a fabulous event and I cannot wait. I bought a fancy new fcuk dress that I love, sassy new shoes, have an overnight sittter lined up for baby G and am ready to hit the town with my hubby and good friends Saturday night. Woot Woot!
