Forever Young is the title of a fashion show I'm producing thats all about creativity, sustainability and having fun. I am designing & constructing 100+ looks, for 8 collections, to show in June of this year. This fashion show will be my biggest production to date and it will also be supporting the nonprofit i founded called Evergreen Design Co.

Evergreen Design Co is all about helping people make simple lifestyle changes that will help the planet and ultimately make them happier. Through sustainable design we aim to inspire and provide means to a more eco-friendly lifestyle. Thus, all of the fashion for this show will be made sustainably.

I use organic and natural fibers, vintage fabrics, salvaged garments that have been donated and pretty much any other material i find, to make my clothing. It is also my goal to use every single piece of fabric in my studio, and trust me, nothing will go to waste.

Your contributions will help secure the venue, photographer, models and hairstylists to make the show a success. I'm hoping to raise enough money to cover the costs of the show so that all proceeds from the event, including ticket sales, can directly benefit the charity. And hey, if we can raise a little more we're shooting for an open bar- who doesn't love that?

You can see some of my work, and learn about Evergreen Design Co, at www.RachelDeCavage.com. All looks for Forever Young are new & original so you won't see any of them until June!

Thanks!
