Last Sunday, August 2nd, Highbridge Park in Upper Manhattan went green with the event “Eco Fashion in the Park,” produced by stylist & fashion event producer, Gina Constanza, and supported by the Washington Heights City Councilman, Ydanis Rodriguez.
The free event’s goal was to inspire and ignite awareness around the issues on eco-friendly fashion and how to empower the style and its sustainability as a lifestyle. The runway show used a very unique catwalk: the recently re-opened High Bridge, which is a quarter-mile-long pediestran bridge that’s suspended between Manhattan and the Bronx.
Five eco-friendly fashion designers showcased their designs and here we present the teens and tweens who rocked the catwalk, modeling from borough to borough.
