LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) – A local organization celebrated Earth Day with an eco-friendly fashion show.
Verdejo Events’ Earth Day Art Fashion Show was held Friday night at the Mahali Events Center.
A diverse range of models wore costumes made from living plants, posing with works by local artists.
The show included dancing and live music, aimed at giving attendees an appreciation for the many elements of life on Earth.
A number of local and eco-friendly vendors participated in the fashion show.
Other sponsors reached out to the community for an Earth Day celebration.
“Today’s event is truly amazing and in a way speaks to the true nature of the planet and the diversity that inhabits it,” said Kate Thomas, a saleswoman.
Another vendor, Ashlyn Meurant, said events like this are less common in the community.
“I think it’s nice to have some diversity, something new, something different, things like that don’t normally happen in Lawton, so it’s really nice and cool to see something like that happen,” she said.
And in addition to the show, each guest received a special gift designed to highlight the symbiotic relationship humans have with the earth.
