SAN FRANCISCO. Welcome to the annual Earth Day celebration in the “Greenest City in North America!"

On April 22, more than 15,000 people from the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond will converge at Civic Center Plaza to celebrate Earth Day San Francisco 2012.

One of the highlights of EDSF 2012, will be the debut of its Eco-Fashion Green Chic Showcase and Fashion Show (12:30 to 1:30 pm on the Green Stage near Polk Street across from the City Hall). At Earth Day San Francisco, our Bay Area Eco-Fashion Green Chic Fashion Industry Leaders will be featuring works of a number of local Earth-Friendly Designers displaying a verdant spread of looks, assisted by like minded Artists, Models, and Stylists along with many local supporters from our fashion community.

Attendees of the Premier, which starts at 12:30 pm on the Green Stage, will view a stunning display that exemplifies the connection between humanity and all of Earth’s creatures. Eco-Haute Couture crafted from sustainable raw and organic materials will be beautifully displayed by local models, and the spectacular display will culminate in a release of butterflies from a recycled wirewear gown created by Fashion Artist Tuan Tran (this Vietnam-Born Artist has wowed crowds with couture fashion designs made from telephone wire “WireWear” and re-purposed material “OriWear”). A concurrent performance by Joshua Bernstein on the Native American flute, vocal performance by Natalie Pinks, T.M.O.D. debut performance (12noon), and the free spirit dancing of Katherine Idrogo are also planned.

This year’s show will focus on three key concepts that illustrate the hottest trends in Eco-Fashion, and their relationship to the creative forces of nature. The first demonstrates the synergy between wearable art and Earth energy through music, paintings, movement, yoga and dance. The second highlights the transformative nature of fashion, with trans-functional, multi-functional and unisex designs, and the androgyny of male-to-female and female-to-male fashion. This year’s third concept demonstrates ‘scrap glamour’: how unwanted, discarded and repurposed/recycled garments and/or industrial and commercial materials can be transformed into chic ultra-fashionable outfits. These designs will change the public’s perception of up-cycled fashion, and have a positive impact on consumption and recycling.

It’s certain, that the Eco-Consciousness of our Community, and our “Fashion-Forward” San Franciscans, will be raised, and that everyone who attends will gain a greater appreciation for wearable Eco-Fashion, and how to incorporate it into their own personal Eco-Chic Style. The EDSF Fashion Committee is inviting one and all to bring their enthusiasm and their unique self-styled individuality, to Earth Day San Francisco, in support of Green Chic, the entire local fashion community, the integrity of our Earth, and a brighter future for all of us. At the heart of the event is the desire to inspire the Bay Area Community, to share positive energy and concern, and, to promote Eco-Conscious choices in every aspect of our daily lives, including fashion.

The event will also feature three stages of Multi-Cultural Music and Performance, Renowned Keynote Speakers, Interactive D.I.Y. Workshops, Green-Economy and Businesses Info, Representatives from Indigenous Community Leaders, Civic Agencies, Youth Empowerment Groups, Fashion Industry Leaders, Religious Leaders, and Prominent ‘Eco-Green’ Political Officials.
