Seed and Sew: George Brown+Frugal Fashion Week+Goodwill=Eco Fashion

The Toronto-based fashion event company, Frugal Fashion Week has a new charitable fashion event up its sleeve with the upcoming Seed & Sew: An Eco-Chic Initiative debuting in March.

The students of George Brown College have been invited by FFW to create fashionable, environmentally and affordable collections with pre-worn clothing, accessories and everything in-between, all generously donated from every vintage-loving fashionista's favourite store, Goodwill. Culminating the initiative is a fabulous runway event showcasing the budding designers eco-fabulous creations.

As a George Brown fashion alumni, it is so really exciting to see my old stomping grounds contribute to such as a great cause, that is not only good for the environment but a great opportunity for all the talented fashion students at George Brown as well.

The future CFDA winners will also have the chance to attend the Fashion Harvest Workshops including, how to get A-Listers in your designer duds, what buyers have their eye on and The Art of Schmooze.
