“Project Earth Day” is an eco-friendly fashion event that will celebrate Earth Day. The runway show will be held at the Teknion showroom on April 19th and will feature a stunning display of the latest eco-friendly designs by up and coming designers. The night will feature a student competition, judged by a panel of industry leaders, with the winner awarded a cash prize of $1500 and a mentorship opportunity. In addition, several emerging fashion designers will put together small collections made from donated textiles.

The event is being organized by Emerging Green Builders of New York (EGBNY), the local chapter of USGBC. EGBNY’s mission is to create a network of emerging green building leaders and develop opportunities for involvement through the USGBC New York chapter to further generate momentum for the green building industry.

The show is co-sponsored by o2-NYC, and Green Drinks.
