Eco Fashion Goes Solar RIGHT HERE in the Twin Cities

April 23rd at The Depot, Sol Inspirations will host Minnesota’s first eco-fashion show. Eco-fashion includes choosing organic and locally made textiles, manufacturing clothes efficiently to use less energy, responsible labor practices, recycling clothes to make new fashion (upcycling), and commissioning demi-couture clothing over disposable fashion. Designers and eco-responsible businesses will showcase their products in an edgy fashion-forward event produced by the top production and event management companies in the Midwest, Ignite Models Inc. and LIMEgreen Inc

Project Runway’s Seventh Season Winner Seth Aaron Henderson will headline Sol Inspirations Eco-Fashion Gala & Benefit Event, showcasing his SolarWorld collection.

General tickets are $35 and proceeds benefit the Minnesota Renewable Energy Society and will also be used to help Haiti rebuild.

About thinkofitasanadventure

We are a 50-something couple living in the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis. We attended a sustainability conference at our local high school in November 2010, with keynote speaker Richard Heinberg from the Post Carbon Institute. What we heard shocked us deeply. We finally understood the need to transition away from fossil fuels as quickly as possible. We immediately began to change the way we live. We joined together with other folks in our neighborhood to learn more, to do more and to have fun doing it! We're part of Transition Longfellow. We're choosing to change now and to "think of it as an adventure." If you are on this journey too, we'd love to hear from you.
