Going for Greenie

Posted By on Mon, May 16, 2016 at 3:14 PM

According to organizers, Veda Salon and Spas eighth annual Earth Month Fashion Show & Greenie Awards enjoyed a record attendance (some 500 people) on Saturday, April 30, in the Colorado Springs City Auditorium. 

Here's a brief description of festivities from a press release:
"The Evolution of Beauty” showcased 62 models working their eco-chic fashions, on a massive 60 foot runway. Lasers, high-tech screens, theatrical music and mod lighting all showcased looks put together by the Veda creative team – from Paleo - to Renaissance - to Modern - to wildly Futuristic.

Performances by Denver-based pop baroque group Spinphony, as well as Synergy Dance Academy, added to the night of dramatic high fashion energy.
