House of Glam (www.houseofglamnyc.com) and District 10 Council Member Ydanis Rodríguez have announced their sponsorship of the first ECO-FASHION IN THE PARK on Sunday, September 25th.
The one-of-a-kind fashion show will feature several local Latina designers who aim to inspire and create awareness around the issues of eco-friendly fashion and how to empower its sustainability as a lifestyle. All 11 designers who will be presenting their new lines at ECO-FASHION IN THE PARK are committed to reducing carbon footprints via their eco-friendly clothing. Attendees will be able to participate in a clothing swap, where they can exchange used, clean articles of clothing amongst each other.
“It’s great to see how upcoming, independent designers work with materials that are good for the environment, stated Gina Constanza, stylist, personal shopper and founder of House of Glam. “Shifting fashion to be more sustainable and eco-friendly in their work is just the beginning of an unforgettable prelude to my commitment to this initiative.”
Designers slated to present their lines: Karina Fernández, Lissy Gómez from LVG Designs, Iliana Quander from amparo 3, Miriam Guerrero from Original Wear, Marlissa Macario, Wendel Johnston, Bridget Artise from Born Again Vintage, Lajuanda Moody, Sandra Baquero, Ana Segura and Tom Sohung.
ECO-FASHION IN THE PARK will also include a live demonstration by Trudy Miller, a designer, researcher and educator specializing in sustainable design strategies for high performance products, services and environments.
