The UC Botanical Garden at Berkeley presents RUNWAY IN THE REDWOODS, a unique Redwood Grove Fashion Show with original garments, textiles, and sculptural adornments created in collaboration directly inspired by the Botanical Garden.
As part of its Year of Ethnobotany celebration, the Botanical Garden is proud to have brought together as Designers-in-Residence an array of the Bay Area and California’s most talented textile artists and fashion designers. These Designers-in-Residence have created a collaborative show on themes of Seeds, Growth, Bloom, and Decay/Transformation featuring plant-based design and innovation. Read more
THIS YEAR’S DESIGNER-IN-RESIDENCE FASHION SHOW PARTICIPANTS:
The event will take place in the Garden’s Mather Redwood Grove Amphitheater–literally a runway through the redwoods–with live music accompaniment, local artisanal wine, cocktails, and appetizers. Pieces from the show, as well as other garments from the Designers’ fashion lines, will be available for purchase.
All proceeds from the benefit event will support the Garden’s living museum of plants and its mission of global biodiversity, conservation, and education.
