On Friday, March 9 and Saturday, March 10, Carbondale Arts produced the 10th Annual Green is the New Black Fashion Extravaganza: SUPER.NATURAL. Full of locals, performance art, multimedia, inspiring sustainable fashion and a storyline to boot, this show isn’t just entertaining– it is about raising money to educate our youth in the Roaring Fork Valley. Green is the New Black sells out every year at 500 seated tickets plus standing room each night. Local and national designers and artists come together to create a dynamic, alluring, and thought-provoking event featuring fashion that sparks the imagination and is created from recycled and/or sustainable materials. These creations, intertwined with dance and multimedia artistry, attract an audience from throughout the Roaring Fork Valley and beyond. Watch an edit of the 2016 show here. Video by Muse Motion.
