The evening will once again feature an ecofashion show produced by Clarissa Nicosia and Lily Achatz.  Vintage and Sustainable designs will include: Vintage Stores: Vintage a la Mode, The Vutique, Torso Vintages, Ricky Serbin Haute; Sustainable Designers & Stores: C PAS, Karen Caldwell, Silk Utopia, Emily Melville, Eco Citizen, Oak & Co; and Jewelry & Accessories: Amber Marie Bently, Vintage a la Mode
