Eco-Fabulous Fashion Show

I’m so super excited for our “Eco-Fabulous Fashion Show” event coming up March 25! We did a go green event last year, and it was great. But this year, we’re taking it to a whole new, even more amazing, level.

Last year, we had some designs that DAAP students made on display throughout the venue. It was neat to look at them, but none of them could really be worn. But this year, the DAAP students are making eco-fab designs that are going to be worn on the runway! The outfits will be made out of repurposed household items and/or eco-friendly products. Think couture gown out of dryer sheets whisking its way down the catwalk… yeah, amazing.

Serket Jewelry is sponsoring the fashion show portion of the event, and is designing all the jewelry for the models. I interviewed her in this previous blog. I just love how innovative Lyn (owner/designer for Serket) is, so I’m sure she’ll have incredible designs and concepts for you to enjoy at this show. I’ll have a sneak peek here of some of her designs soon on the blog after Lyn and my fashion show intern go and check out the DAAP designs.

Also, this year, Lexus has a brand new hybrid it’ll be featuring. AND vitaminwater zero just came on board as the presenting sponsor, so you know there will be great swag!

I hope you can make it! Here are all the details…

12 Days of Seasonably Chic Showcase: Day 10

Last day of double digits in the countdown to the Nov. 6 Seasonably Chic Showcase! Here’s a sneak peek of some of the vendors you’ll see there, and my favorite things they offer!

Kennedy’s Clothier:
As I was browsing through Kennedys Clothier one day, I found out they make custom jackets for women! What woman doesn’t need a chic jacket for a business casual occasion? And, why not make it one of a kind. This jacket was something that really caught my eye at Kennedy’s Clothier because it has a very snazzy plaid with a great pink, black and gray color scheme to it. Kennedy’s Clothier is located in Madeira and is great for the young professional or the seasoned businesswoman. That’s not all they carry there at that boutique. There are also gorgeous evening dresses and shoes that can put some pizzazz to any outfit.

Casa DeLorenzo:
And the custom doesn’t have to stop at your wardrobe! If you are looking for a custom, modern twist on your home decor, this is the place to look. Casa DeLorenzo, located in Oakley in the Design District features some of the most elegant classic and modern custom pillows. It was pretty difficult to pick out which pillow was my favorite but I would have to say the modern design takes the prize. Tina De Lorenzo designs her pillows for your exact taste with an in-home consultation. You can’t go wrong here with the expertise of Tina, and the creativity of your own taste. Featured picture is a set of custom bed pillows done by Tina. I love the elegance and warm color the set brings to the room.

Silpada Designs with Jane Klumb:
My mom collects hammered aluminum, so my favorite thing to get her is hammered jewelry from Silpada Designs. My all-time favorite has to be the hammered, matte Sterling Silver Link necklace from the new 2010-2011 catalog. Hope my mom doesn’t read this blog post… if so, try to act surprised at Christmas, mom! haha! I like long necklaces like this because you can get more looks out of them. You can wear them long, or double it up to be shorter and chunkier. You can check out this necklace and more when you see Silpada Designs with Jane Klumb at the Seasonably Chic Showcase!

Purdy Everyday:
I first found out about Purdy Everyday by reading a post on Kasmira’s “What I Wore Today” blog. I checked out her site, and it’s one of the coolest online boutiques I’ve seen in a long time! With everyone trying to be more ‘green,’ this is the perfect place to get really trendy clothing, THAT’S RECYCLED! Not only is it recycled, but also it is reasonably priced. This is a great business that wants to help you learn how to do these types of things as well. This scarf is made out of recycled tshirts! If you have some of your favorite tshirts that just don’t fit or have been worn a bit too long, turn them into a scarf! What better ways to get ready for the holiday season or to just look trendy then by wearing a warm scarf out of clothes you already have? All of the purses that Joy Lagdameo makes are completely one of a kind. She also just came up with an idea call EveryDAYprons for the “Foodie Fashionista.”

The Seasonably Chic Showcase will be on Nov. 6 at The Phoenix downtown from 10am-3pm. This event brings 40 of the Tri-state’s best boutiques and vendors – for women, men, children and pets – all under one roof for one day of spectacular shopping! The best thing about it? It’s free to get in! Just bring in a canned good for the Freestore Foodbank! Click here to RSVP!

Cincy Chic and Locals on Living, an affiliate of the Cincinnati.Com network, have teamed up to give away a prize pack of items from all the Seasonably Chic Showcase vendors that’s valued at $2,500! Click here to learn how you can win it!
