The Greenest Fashion Event in Canada

The Greenest Fashion Event in Canada

Fashion Takes Action's Green Gala, which will be hosted on June 25th at Polson Pier, hopes to be the greenest fashion event in Canada. It's their unconventional approach to fashion that's made Fashion Takes Action's Green Gala one of the most anticipated fashion events of the year and an event I won't want to miss.

Jumping on the environmental bandwagon has become a lot easier through surge in popularity in eco-fashion and being sustainably-stylish with stores such as The Rage, Heart on Your Sleeve and GreenisBlack leading the way. These stores are some of the many venues that have found ways to give consumers great prices on locally-made, environmentally-conscious clothing that make you look and feel great.

After looking at the cost of admission, my wallet felt lighter than usual, but I reassure you that the price of the show is well worth the cost. While traditional runway shows may seem daunting for a person like myself who is interested in fashion, but carefully picks-and-chooses the events I attend - this is the event for you.

The Green Gala gives you the whole enchilada by showcasing the talent of ten top Canadian designers, each with three couture garments made entirely from sustainable fabrics. Forget the typically white runway; last year's event had models walking down 1800-square feet of sod.

This year's second annual Green Gala is particularly important because of Fashion Takes Action's new campaign in partnership with Environmental Defence whose projects include the preservation of Lake Simcoe and the Ontario Greenbelt as well as Earth Pledge's Future Fashion and their work implementing green roofs (which I would love to see throughout the city).

To top it off, there will be locally and organically-grown food and silent and live auctions. Likewise, be sure to listen to the musical renditions of local jazz artist Larra Skye as well as singer and songwriter Melissa McClelland.
