Once again the Aveda network came together for an awesome event to raise money for the Audubon Society. Twenty-four salon teams designed a head to toe look for a one of a kind runway show… and it was so cool! Let me take a quick second to explain what atrashion showis…”Catwalk for Water is an annual green carpet event during which local Aveda salons come together to raise money for Earth Month by showcasing their inspiration, creativity and technical skills in hair, makeup and trashion. Using the earth as their muse, salon design teams create a comprehensive look that celebrates beauty, fashion and Aveda’s mission to care for the world we live in.” [information borrowed from theaveda catwalk for water 2015 fb page]
The Trixies design team took inspiration from Mad Men ((r.i.p.)). We designed a crop top out of plastic shopping bags and pop cans with a skirt entirely out of upcycled men’s ties. Miss Ari did an amazing job on the runway and we can’t say thank you enough!
This is the 2nd annual Catwalk for Water in Des Moines and the support has been amazing! More than 400 tickets were sold for the event and in addition to the runway show, there is a silent auction and retailing area. Trixies feels blessed to be part of such a cool event and we are pretty excited to announce that this year’s show raised…. $25,000!!!
So as we say goodbye to another year of Earth Month festivities, we want to say THANK YOU. Thank you for showing up, thank you for supporting us, and thank you for donating. We couldn’t do the things we do if it weren’t for our guests, families, and friends. Until next year… xoxo, the Trixies Girls
