Project Earth Day, an event organized by the USGBC Emerging Green Builders NY, is looking for a few good eco-savvy students to enter its 2nd Annual Student Competition. The questions you'll need to ask yourself: How green are you? And how does your built environment inspire your fashion?
The challenge is to use an image or photograph from your built environment as inspiration to create an innovative fashion garment to be showcased on the runway. Entrants will be judged on aesthetics, execution of design, and the incorporation of one or more "ecological design" principles, such as eco-labeling, or dyes and water consumption. The grand prize is $1,500, a profile of you and your design in a major publication, and a gift bag from the contest's sponsors, which includes Teknion., the maker of the Greenguard-certified Contessa chair. ::Project Earth Day
