About the Event

Fleurish: A Sustainable Fashion Event (and Ijams fundraiser!) is back! This incredible eco-friendly and sustainable runway show is returning to Ijams on April 21 from 6-9 pm!

Fleurish is a collaborative runway show showcasing how sustainability, conservation, and beauty intertwine with our lives and our future. Local designers join forces with local hair and makeup artists to create amazing designs that incorporate sustainable materials, innovative recycling methods, and reusing what was once discarded trash.

Last year's event featured 17 designers and 65+ models who showcased eco-friendly, sustainably sourced, and upcycled fashions around the newly renovated pond just outside the Visitor Center. The 2024 event will be even bigger and bolder and includes a two-part runway with the theme of Punk Vs. Funk with live music from Brent Hyder and Duck Experience! For the 2024 show, there are 25 designers who have created over 100+ looks for the runway! And there may be some surprises in store!

Fleurish engages the audience in ways we, the average consumers, can make changes to our day-to-day lives while never losing sight of the beauty of nature and the human experience.

During the cocktail hour from 6-7 pm, enjoy some punk or funk signature cocktails or purchase some delicious bites from Coffee and Chocolate, Cafe 4, or the Kennedy as you check out the Green Carpet for a photo op, our education stations, or learn about conservation efforts in the fashion realm. Then, at 7 pm, it is time to see what imagination can do with reusable, recycled materials as over 100 models take the runway to show off what 25 amazing local designers have created!  After the show, rub elbows with the artists and designers on the hillside. 

Tickets are $30. All proceeds support Ijams Nature Center.

Sponsored by: Clayton, Boston Beer Company, Kara Hudgens Photography, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., Coffee and Chocolate, Hushh Magazine, and Mountain Escapes.
