Five Shades of GREEN an Eco-Sexy Fashion Play
- “Fashion Play”: a fashion show that forgoes the predictable walk, walk, turn, pose, walk for a set of narrated scenes that showcase the clothes while telling a story
- “Eco-Sexy”: the show’s aesthetic, a fusion of 50 Shades of Grey and environmentally-conscious designs that take their inspiration from water, fire, wood, earth, and metal
- “Mistress of Elegance”: Miami “soulcialite” Ingrid B, who serves as emcee
- Narrating: poet Darius Daughtry, director of poetry programs, Omari Hardwick, and Bluapple Poetry Network; and actress/vocalist/ performer Nailah Daaj
- Also using her voice: soul singer Antonia Jenaè, who has previously sung backup for Joss Stone
- Before the show: guests test their eco-fashion knowledge by playing the Fashion Fandangle game, browse the wares of green vendors, and peek into the designers’ pop-up shop
- After the show: Mingle with media for interviews and photo-ops, or attend the after party
- Most on-trend accessory: philanthropy—a portion of the event’s proceeds will benefit Save the Twinz, a breast cancer awareness foundation that supports women of color as well as MOCA Kids to help/sponsor kids with their summer programming for kids in the arts
