Event Highlights:

Runway-Style Fashion Show

Bringing together this, "new concept of luxury", sustainable fashion stylist Lauren Engelke will showcase a consciously-curated collection of fashionable outfits on the Reeves-Reed Arboretum runway.

Narrated by producer and stylist Leslie Patrizio, this collection will feature "looks" that incorporate sustainably-sourced virgin materials, recycled materials or up-cycled materials.

Student-Led Sustainable Design Challenge

Local fashion students will participate in a "Project Runway"-style show with original design compositions. Designs will incorporate sustainably sourced virgin materials, recycled materials or up-cycled materials.

Theater Costumes

Enjoy a stunning display of original costumes created from recycled and up-cycled materials on loan from the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey.

Summer Spectacle

The event will be in a clear-top tent on the grounds of the Arboretum. Enjoy more than thirteen acres of natural woodlands, formal gardens, and open vistas with wine and light bites.

How do we use fashion as a vehicle for change?

A Regenerative Vision for the Fashion Industry

Explore with us environmental ethics in the fashion industry, real-world experiences, social consciousness, and successful local and individual implementation... our goal is to build consensus for action.

The fashion industry is a major contributor to the global economy and is a vital sector to consider in developing solutions to create a better planet.

To meet global sustainability targets, all of civil society, world leaders, institutions and private sectors must work together and take accountability for their actions as we search for better and more sustainable alternatives.

The fashion industry is finally starting to embrace sustainability and become a significant driver of how and what consumers purchase. Business Of Fashion tells us that 65 percent of consumers actively seek sustainable fashion, a massive increase from the tumbleweeds we saw just 10 years ago. More and more, we are seeing designers, brands, celebrities and influencers speak out about making a change.
