When asked by Charlie Price of Beauty Underground to be a part of the runway during Denver Fashion Week in November, the answer was absolutely YES! The interesting aspect was to be a part of the second night on November 10th, Advant Garde Night, and collaborate with Scott Lobben and his team at Rita B Salon for hair and make up. From the opportunity to make a powerful impact on the runway constructing 10 looks, the decision was made to “voice for the voiceless” though a color story of black and white. In true Equillibrium fashion, the runway will once again be used as a sound board sending a clear message that time is running out, stand for Endangered Species, and be better to our Planet Earth. We titled our segment, “Forever with the Wild”.
“Good fashion is not enough to inspire me to create and construct apparel, especially on a runway. It must be made ethically, be sustainable, have function, and send a message for awareness toward an environmental cause to the audience.” Deb Henriksen of Equillibrium. “Fashion is my outlet for change through self expression and activism. At this point in my life, I need it more than ever. It empowers me to have a broad reach and be the change I want to see.”
The show will begin with Father Time taking a stroll on the runway. Next, 8 looks inspired by Endangered Species will take the spotlight and endear you to their struggle for survival as habitat loss, pollution, poaching, and climate change threaten thier lives every day. Last, our Mother Earth will finish the segment with imagery sure to make the point clear… LOVE your Mother! What is good for the planet is good for People…
