Eco-Friendly Fashion Show on Earth Day hosted by Drexel Student

Are you looking for something to do on Earth Day (next Wednesday, April 22nd)?

Drexel student Jenni Izzo is hosting an eco-friendly fashion show, Green with Fashion, at the F.U.E.L. Collection on 249 Arch Street (former ‘Real World’ House) at 7pm.  Tickets are being sold presale for only $20, and all proceeds will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  Jenni wanted to host an eco-friendly Fashion Show to bring the community together & support environmental action.

Over 30 local and national designers and boutiques including Nicole Rae Styer, Arcadia, Bamboo54,  and Del Forte Denimare showing several of ftheir spring pieces at this much-anticipated event.  Also, student designers will also be taking part and exhibiting their own eco-fashion designs.

For those unsure, the term “eco-fashion” refers to stylized clothing using environmentally sensitive fabrics and responsible production techniques. These clothing creations pay special attention to the environment, the health of consumers and the working conditions of people in the fashion industry.

Carbon Fund is supporting the event and donating five tons of carbon offsets to make the event and attendees completely carbon neutral!

Need a celeb fix on Earth day?  Gretchen Rossi from Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Orange County” will be attending the show, and 5 Miss Philadelphia winners, Ryann Richardson (2009), Brintha Vasagar (2008), Kimberly Rogers (2007), Kate Wilson Cohen (2000), and Dr. Kiplee Bell (1998) will be walking the catwalk.

To find a complete listing of designers and boutiques, ticket sale info and updates, visit the fashion show website.
