What’s your definition of eco chic? Wanna know mine? My definition of eco chic is taking the A train uptown to the American Museum of Natural History and going to a fancy environmentally aware fashion show sponsored by green companies and shock full of eco-celebs. At said party I might even drink expensive wine, say hello to Adrien Grenier and watch stars model the latest and greatest eco-clothing amongst some of New York’s top fashionistas.
Yes Ecorazzi readers, you guessed it! Last night I had the privilege of attending the Be Eco Chic fashion event at none other than New York City’s famous American Museum of Natural History. The evening was a blast and besides the Adrien Grenier siting, I spotted Chevy Chase, Dominque Swain, Coltrain Curtis and many more famous faces who all came out to support green fashion.
As the show began our hostess Angela Lindvall reminded us that being green doesn’t mean you can’t be fashion forward. And even though I myself dress like a clueless straight dude, after watching a runway full of eco outfits by designers like Chado Ralph Rucci, DKNY, Carmen Marc Valvo, Nicole Miller and Loomstate, I seriously thought about learning a thing or two about fashion.
Besides hob-knobbing with New York’s elite, I also got the chance to say hello to some of Ecorazzi’s nearest and dearest, including our friends at 360 Vodka, Bradford Rand (founder of the Go Green Expo), and the folks at the Sierra Club. As the night winded down we were treated to a performance by Jon McLaughlin — who I have to say was frigin fantastic – and then invited to a glorious after party that, sadly, I wasn’t able to make. Of course on hand was one of Ecorazzi’s most fashionable photographers, Melissa Rosenberg, who managed to get some great shots from the evening.
As always, we here at Ecorazzi are more than happy to bring you the exclusive scoop from one of New York’s most exclusive events. Now go change those clothes and GET ECO CHIC!
