Earth Day | Aveda Catwalk For Water

It’s Earth month! And tomorrow is EARTH DAY! How are you celebrating?

Last week, I was fortunate enough to attend the 10th Annual Catwalk For Water fashion show hosted by Aveda in partnership with the Clean Ocean Action. Tons of local salons entered their own handmade designs made from all recycled materials, unique hairstyles and personalities. These guys have some serious creative talent, and not even just with hair! Designs were made from packing materials that the Aveda products are shipped in, used coloring tubes, and even egg cartons. It was made clear that the egg cartons were purchased on eBay since the designer is a vegan.IMG_7083

My very favorite dress was made by Asanda, an Aveda salon that has locations on Park Avenue and in SoHo. Their dress was made out of recycled hair tubes and transformed into this gorgeous bronze feather-like dress with flower details on the bodice. I would totally wear this dress, I wonder if they’d make it in my size! 🙂

My second favorite design was made from recycled Starbucks cups. Whenever you go get your hair done, 9 times out of 10 you will be bringing a fresh cup of coffee. This particular salon that designed the dress below has a Starbucks right next door, and was smart enough to keep a few of their clients cups to make one of this dress out of. I love that there are names on the cups!

Other designers incorporated recycled products like plastic utensils, paper stuffing, straws, loofa’s, can tabs, and beans! Such a fun idea and a great way to raise awareness about keeping our Earth clean!

And you know that I can’t just walk by a step-and-repeat (with props!!!) without stopping.
