Vintage & Vogue: A Green Fashion Show

In April, I coordinated a fashion show for the Green Party of Manitoba.  They were looking to hold an event that would be a bit different than the fundraisers they regularly have, and engage the local community.  We had some fantastic designers, retailers and models come on board, and we had a fantastic night.

The photos above were taken by Cooki Lumsden.  Top left is Chrissy Troy from HOT 103.1, our MC for the night.  Top right is Carly, a model decked out in Vintage Bling.  Bottom right is Dayle Goertzen, designer and owner of Vintage Bling, and bottom left is James Beddome, leader of the Green Party of Manitoba.

Designers and retailers whose work was featured included:
Hungover Empire
Ragpickers Antifashion Emporium
Sew Dandee
KLAS Clothing
Vintage Bling
The Closet on River.

The amazing stylists at Berns & Black did hair and makeup, and the models all looked fantastic.

The Friendly Florist provided floral centerpieces for the tables, and they were super pretty and Spring-y.

We were also excited to welcome Sandbox Magazine at a vendor table.  Their Winnipeg magazine is a huge hit.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the night: from designers, models, hair and makeup, decorations, and Green Party of Manitoba volunteers, we had a  huge team involved that helped to make the event a success!

This event was so much fun. And so well organized! I wish we had eco-fashion shows more often. What a fashion inspiration.

It was a great evening! Fantastic to see that fashion can be eco friendly, fashionable and fun all at the same time. There are a lot of talented designers in this city!
