Local Fashion of Compassion

Nataliya Gotsiy modeling for Cynthia Rowley, Spring 2007 New York Fashion Week from wikipedia.orgA big part of sustainability is building community and that includes  getting out there to support local business and local services.  The fashion industry is not often equated with much of anything nice other than looking good.  It is particularly not known for being sustainable, but here is your chance to look great, support locally owned businesses, and contribute to a life saving cause. Paradise Valley Community College is holding an upcoming event to provide you that opportunity. They have put together an event called Fashion of Compassion, showcasing fashions from local boutiques with the proceeds going to the Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

It can be tough to find local clothing stores and the allure of convenience of big names and mega malls can be too much to resist when you don’t know where else to go. This is your chance to get informed on who is out there locally.  Just browsing through their websites (links below) there’s a lot to look forward to.  A worthy cause, supporting local business, with loads of fun fashion, sounds good to me! Be sure to tell your friends, the more people who attend, the more donations to the hospital and the more publicity for these local boutiques!
