A first for Charleston, Charleston Eco Fashion Event produced by Circa PR and Tout Models and Talent will showcase independent fashion designers that are making strides to support and embrace responsible philosophies.  

The event seeks to promote environmentally conscious trends in fashion and to applaud and support designers who are shaping these trends.

The Charleston Eco Fashion Event at Michael Mitchell Gallery will occupy the entire gallery space located at 438 King Street on April 22nd (Earth Day) from 7 to 9 p.m.

Each designer will showcase their latest collections of environmentally friendly, trend-setting fashion. Featured designers include Caroline Baker Maude Couture, One Love by Rachel Gordon and Natasha Shamdasani Madan, Taashki.

With innovative fashion also comes eco-friendly hair and makeup by Grace Salon and Spa and Cos Bar of Charleston.

Along with three runway shows, guests will also enjoy wine provided by Earth Fare, Sinless RAW chocolate, music by DJ Jake B and eco-friendly vendors Treats for Tresses, SCRAPS Jewelry, Fine Garnish Jewelry by Fernanda Sullivan, Cos Bar of Charleston and The Good Footprint.

A portion of the ticket sales proceeds will go to Fields to Families, a nonprofit organization located in Charleston, South Carolina, that helps the hungry in our community gain access to nutritious fruits and vegetables. Fields to Families serves the hungry and needy in the Lowcountry, specifically in Charleston, Dorchester and Berkeley Counties.  When they receive fresh fruits and vegetables from the farms Fields to Families partner with, they distribute them through food-rescue organizations and community-outreach programs, including food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and churches.

The official after party presented by Charleston After Dark will be at Club NV.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.
