Beau Monde Society’s Fashion Envie To Bring A Weekend Of Sustainable Fashion To NYC

Join Okayafrica at Beau Monde Society's 4th annual Fashion Envie event April 22 & 23 in New York City.


Last year Beau Monde Society brought us this stunning beachside photo story with Rwandan model and artist Lilian Uwanyuze. In April, the New York City-based eco-focused fashion communications agency will present its 4th annual Fashion Envie (Fashion + Environment + Life) weekend in NYC. The two-day event consists of panels and fashion presentations featuring some of the hottest ethical designers and artists. Okayafrica is excited to be involved as a media partner.

Ringing in the weekend on Friday, April 22, the first-ever F.U.N conversation series and press event, hosted by Al Malonga of Wardrobe Breakdown, will focus on the importance of a sustainable future. The series features a talk and panel on “Sustainable Future” with Tessa John-Connor (@afroista), Reuben Reuel (DEMESTIKS NY) and self-portraiture artist/blogger Teff (The Expressionist). Press can RSVP to attend the Friday event at beaumondesocietyPR@gmail.com.

On Saturday, April 23, which also happens to be Earth Day, Fashion Envie returns for the fourth time ever under this year’s theme, Oxo M o n o c h r o m e. The culmination of Beau Monde Society’s work in the ethical and afro-future sphere over the past year, the event features a fashion presentation curated by Creative Director, Jennifer Nnamani, and featuring Erika Mizuno, Fancy Muffin, Kahkti, Marielle|Ejiama and Nyorh Agwe.
