Get ready eco-fashion loving New Yorkers! Project Earth Daythe fabulous green runway show / fashion design competition that we love so much is coming to the Teknion showroom TONIGHT, from 7-8pm. Anyone who likes sustainable fashion and/or Project Runway (since this is like an eco take on Project Runway), should definitely try to make it down to the showroom tonight to see it.

For those of you who are interested but can’t make the event, don’t fear! Check back with Inhabitat over the weekend to see our followup coverage. We will be documenting all the designers, and winners of the competition here on Inhabitat in our regular Sustainable Style Sunday column, so be sure to check in on Sunday to see how the whole thing went down.

We had an awesome time at last year’s event, and would encourage anyone who is interested in attending to get in touch with the organizers ASAP. The RSVP list is already full and the space is small, but you may have some luck in the next couple days if you plan ahead:

What does green architecture have to do with sustainable style – you might ask? Organizer Molly Garretson explained it this way: there has been an upswell of interest in green design everywhere this year – in green building even more than green fashion. Sustainability is an issue that cuts across all design disciplines and in fact, brings disciplines together under common strategies and a common purpose. “EGBNY members are young, creative professionals in the building, architecture and interior design fields,” says Molly Garretson, EGBNY member and the fashion show liaison. “We wanted to throw an event that would not only be fun, but would bring together similar creative, eco-conscious people in another yet related area of design.”

Kudos to that! Viva la interdisciplinary eco design!
