SAN FRANCISCO. Welcome to the annual Earth Day celebration in the “Greenest City in North America!"
On April 22, more than 15,000 people from the San Francisco Bay Area
and beyond will converge at Civic Center Plaza to celebrate Earth Day
San Francisco 2012.
One of the
highlights of EDSF 2012, will be the debut of its Eco-Fashion Green
Chic Showcase and Fashion Show (12:30 to 1:30 pm on the Green Stage near
Polk Street across from the City Hall). At Earth Day San Francisco,
our Bay Area Eco-Fashion Green Chic Fashion Industry Leaders will be
featuring works of a number of local Earth-Friendly Designers displaying
a verdant spread of looks, assisted by like minded Artists, Models, and
Stylists along with many local supporters from our fashion community.
Attendees of the Premier, which starts at 12:30 pm on the Green Stage,
will view a stunning display that exemplifies the connection between
humanity and all of Earth’s creatures. Eco-Haute Couture crafted from
sustainable raw and organic materials will be beautifully displayed by
local models, and the spectacular display will culminate in a release of
butterflies from a recycled wirewear gown created by Fashion Artist
Tuan Tran (this Vietnam-Born Artist has wowed crowds with couture
fashion designs made from telephone wire “WireWear” and re-purposed
material “OriWear”). A concurrent performance by Joshua Bernstein on
the Native American flute, vocal performance by Natalie Pinks, T.M.O.D.
debut performance (12noon), and the free spirit dancing of Katherine
Idrogo are also planned.
This year’s show will focus on three
key concepts that illustrate the hottest trends in Eco-Fashion, and
their relationship to the creative forces of nature. The first
demonstrates the synergy between wearable art and Earth energy through
music, paintings, movement, yoga and dance. The second highlights the
transformative nature of fashion, with trans-functional,
multi-functional and unisex designs, and the androgyny of male-to-female
and female-to-male fashion. This year’s third concept demonstrates
‘scrap glamour’: how unwanted, discarded and repurposed/recycled
garments and/or industrial and commercial materials can be transformed
into chic ultra-fashionable outfits. These designs will change the
public’s perception of up-cycled fashion, and have a positive impact on
consumption and recycling.
It’s certain, that the
Eco-Consciousness of our Community, and our “Fashion-Forward” San
Franciscans, will be raised, and that everyone who attends will gain a
greater appreciation for wearable Eco-Fashion, and how to incorporate it
into their own personal Eco-Chic Style. The EDSF Fashion Committee is
inviting one and all to bring their enthusiasm and their unique
self-styled individuality, to Earth Day San Francisco, in support of
Green Chic, the entire local fashion community, the integrity of our
Earth, and a brighter future for all of us. At the heart of the event is
the desire to inspire the Bay Area Community, to share positive energy
and concern, and, to promote Eco-Conscious choices in every aspect of
our daily lives, including fashion.
The event will also feature
three stages of Multi-Cultural Music and Performance, Renowned Keynote
Speakers, Interactive D.I.Y. Workshops, Green-Economy and Businesses
Info, Representatives from Indigenous Community Leaders, Civic Agencies,
Youth Empowerment Groups, Fashion Industry Leaders, Religious Leaders,
and Prominent ‘Eco-Green’ Political Officials.
