Green is the New Black Fashion Show

Green is the New Black Fashion Show

Fashion is in the air this week but it is not just in Aspen. Green is the new Black Fashion Show just took place in Carbondale and what a magnificent show it was!

Carbondale’s favorite fashion show, “Green is the New Black” is coming back this March. Amy Kimberly, Fashion Show Director and CCAH Executive Director, created this event to help fund art programs in schools, “The importance of the arts in learning has been proven over and over, and CCAH is committed to ensuring our students receive this education,” states Kimberly. “Study after study shows that children who are involved in the arts stay in school, graduate, are more involved in the school itself. It boosts brain function, abstract thinking, math and science skills. It’s nuts that this is the first thing that’s cut,” says Ro Mead, former executive director of CCAH.

Carbondale is a town that is fast and furiously becoming a hotbed for entrepreneurs supporting  environmental sustainability and this is reflected in the production of the show as Carbondale’s creative artists and tightly knit community gathered together with over forty designers, including Jenna Bradford of the Carbondale Sew-Op, to create a wardrobe of predominantly sustainable, recycled and/or hand-made designs.

Watch in awe as talented artists and locals, buff from climbing, skiing and mountain biking, appear larger than life on stage dressed in remarkable costumes made out of organic and reclaimed materials. They crawl, strut and shimmy their way down the runway, and sometimes off the stage and into the audience, in an energetic, well choreographed and often eclectic skit marking the concept of “fashion forward using materials from the past”.

Green is the New Black Fashion ShowIt will be a night to remember for an extremely important cause putting a gigantic stamp on the significance of arts, fashion and self expression in our lives and in our schools and I thank Amy Kimberly, CCAH, The Carbondale Recreation and Community Center, our local Merchants and the locals of Carbondale for sending the message home to SAVE OUR ARTS!
