From EcoFashion Show Needs Designers

My alma mater (NCSU COT '07) continues to make me SO proud! From Show Needs Designers
The Triangle Emerging Green Builders are doing a fashion show at the NCSU College of Textiles in the Spring, and they need your help! Click for more info:

Come show the Triangle what green fashion is all about! Designers wishing to participate in this innovative show must present two finished garments to the judging panel on August 23rd, between 10am and 2pm, at the Atrium in the NC State College of Textiles.

The clothing to be selected for the Eco-Fashion show must show a strong emphasis on ecologically friendly design. Eco-friendly design can be in the form of recycled or remanufactured garments, as well as using eco-friendly fabrics and production processes. If you have any questions about the requirements, we welcome you to contact us at

To be considered, each designer must:
· Create two garments that show a strong emphasis on green design
· Completely fill out an application form
· Bring your two garments and application to the Atrium in the NC State College of Textiles on August 23rd between 10 am and 2 pm. Appointments will be scheduled in 15 minute blocks, please email us at to schedule an appointment.

Designers selected by our panel to participate will be asked to present a minimum of 5 to a maximum of 10 pieces at the Eco-Fashion Show. We are asking all designers to strongly consider donating two of their pieces to the Amani Baby Cottage, an orphanage in Uganda that is supported in part by MorLove, a non-profit student organization in the College of Textiles at NC State.

While we may be able to recruit volunteers to model and help with hair and make-up, we are asking all designers to be prepared to find their own models and take care of their own hair and make-up.
