Really though, what sounds more amazing than things like delicious sunshine, blissfully beautiful live music, good friends and eco-fabulous sustainable fashion? Lucky for you (and us), all of these fine, fine pleasures are available at the Think Tank Green Your Wardrobe Fashion Show (aka the official Eco-Fashion Show at Rothbury Music Festival).
Debuted in the summer of 2008, Rothbury is a near zero-waste music festival "guided by a bold environmental sustainability mission" and "committed to throwing a huge party with a purpose." We like. Located on an absolutely gorgeous site full of lush forests and sparkling waters, it becomes home to 30,000 music, art, and earth lovers the weekend of July 3rd to 5th.
In addition to a vastly impressive artist line up that includes a ridiculously wide variety of acts (the Dead, Broken Social Scene, Umphrey's McGee, Willie Nelson, the Black Crowes, Girl Talk, Les Claypool, and on-on-on), Rothbury offers the Think Tank, a unique "event within an event" that includes buzz sessions, workshops and events put on by "leading scientists, scholars, writers, progressive political and corporate leaders, youth leaders, Rothbury artists" and the community. SO cool.
The best part (at least in our fashion-obsessed minds) is the Green Your Wardrobe Fashion Show that will take place as a Think Tank event on Saturday, July 4th. We may be a little biased, as Mountains of the Moon was asked to produce the fashion show along with our friends at Good Will, and little old indie eco-designer me was chosen to emcee. Bias aside, we think learning how to green your wardrobe while viewing the chicest in sustainable apparel and accessories, all set to the fine tracks of our official DJ, STS9's David Murphy, sounds like a pretty delightful way to spend a summer afternoon. From high-end designer organic dresses to the most stylish recycled vintage, we have a feeling that this may in fact be THE eco-fashion show of the summer.
Mosey on over to the Think Tank Green Your Wardrobe Fashion Show event page on Facebook for all the deets (and while you're there, RSVP "attending!").
Nothin' quite like eco-fashion and music in summa summa summatime, oh no.
