Luisa Nadarajah Eco-friendly fashion House
Eco-friendly Houston based fashion designer is creating a collaborative and communal wearable art project in the form of a Fashion Show taking place on April 1st (6-9pm) Downton Houston Location: 1120 Naylor St, 77002
She’s calling her Fashion Show “The Homage Collection”
We’re paying homage to those that have and are still donating unwanted fashion goods from people that passed away.
We’re also paying homage to local artist with disabilities, from our partnership with “Celebration Company Non-Profit”.
They’ve created some of the printed artwork of the runway looks
And our latest partnership is with another local nonprofit called “Connect Community” that employs and trains refugee sewers and seamstresses!
Did I mention that Luisa’s past workforce and current fashion designer assistant have had disabilities? From Autism to her current right-hand lead designer Cyndi Obasi who is fully deaf.
Our team is reclaiming unwanted fashion goods and presenting them in the form of a fashion show that has fabric and trims from people that are no longer with us.
Luisa and her team are collecting unwanted fashion materials from anyone in the community to turn them into runway ready samples. This can be a wedding dress, buttons, denim, patches, broken jewelry and eve scraps!
Also very grateful and honored to mention that this fashion is “Made possible in part through the City’s Initiative Grant.” Signed off by the mayor himself! Luisa has been making the city of Houston super exciting every year, with her fun fashion shows and events since 2015
Her past collections were made from car parts from junk yards and a collection from her trips to south America in search for re-cycled hand embroidery!
A message from the designer:
“when I got the grant support by the City of Houston on an email notification that said “Thank you for the many contributions you and your organization are making to our City’s exciting and vibrant cultural community”
All my struggles and challenges seem insignificant ever since.
I’ve work hard for many years towards turning my passion and dream job into reality. I didn’t know how it was going to pan out. I was uncertain when I would be able to support my family doing what I love while making a positive impact in our community and our planet! Specially with such a cut throat and polluting fashion industry!
Support like this makes all the difference in the world and you know you’re at the right time and the right place to succeed!
Tickets to the event and sponsorship opportunities are on our site
Complementary light bites and drinks will be provided by the designer
Live performance singer Angela Nichols
C omedy skit by Brian Gendron from The Riot Comedy Show will be the MC and entertainment during the model intermission.
Hosted by Luisa Nadarajah a Peruvian/Spanish/Argentinian Latina mom artist with a fashion designer medium.
