Eco couture designed by students from Dana Hall, Wellesley College, Babson College, and other local schools will be on the catwalk at Dana Hall School April 23rd at 7pm. Be inspired to look good, while being good to our planet by stunning works from the fashion show as well as presentations. Students will present about the numerous positive aspects of eco-friendly fashion; local sustainable artists and business owners Lisa Barthelson and Virginia Fitzgerald will discuss how they address climate change through their artwork; and Aelen, owner of Ninawa Zero-Waste, will share insights on running a sustainable business.
“We are constantly being tempted to buy new fast fashion, however there are environmental, ethical and societal reasons to rethink what we wear,” said Sophia Sahni, Dana Hall student organizing the event. “Our future depends on how we act right now and if fashion is your thing, you can help the planet by rethinking what you wear. Come to our event and let us inspire you,” Sahni said.
This event is one way Wellesley can reduce its GHG emissions. Other actions YOU can take are here. Broader, town-wide actions are listed in Wellesley’s Climate Action Plan.
