Green Awakening!


This past month has been pretty crazy. Now that I'm a second semester senior, high school really is flying by. I've made a lot of decisions that I'm happy with (such as, not going to my prom! ... more on that later), heard back from colleges I've applied to for fashion design and fashion merchandising, and have been organizing my high school's first fashion show!

I started to learn about organic clothing, repurposed clothing, etc. last year, and knew right away that's what I wanted to do with my life. For an independent study this year, my teacher agreed to let me organize a completely eco-friendly fashion show, whose name was recently christened Green Awakening. The show will take place on Earth Day, and feature an array of clothing and accessories, both donated and made by me!

After the show, a silent auction will be held of all clothing and accessories, with all of its proceeds going towards the Sierra Club.

Anyways, I know I've been neglecting this blog, but if you'd like to read more about what I've been doing, you can go here!
