Friday night, I had the pleasure of attending University of Waterloo's STEP (Sustainability Technology Education Project)'s R4 Fashion Show.
As blogto fashion writer Briony put it, "A squadron of sustainable tech nerds from Waterloo showed a packed crowd at their R4 Fashion event that going green can be high-fashion as well."
The event was headlined by some of Canada's top fashion designers: AIME by Monica Mei, CARRIE by Carrie Hayes, Thieves by Sonja den Elzen, and Rachel Jasmine Chan, and also included an Emerging Designers Competition.
While I don't count myself much of a fashionista, and most of the outfits seemed a little too out there for me, I was just so impressed by the university students who put the entire event together and their commitment "to promote sustainable design & technology, lifestyle, and eco-friendly consumer decisions in the community."
What do you think of the clothes? Anything catch your eye and could see in your closet?
