Hope everyone had fun at last week’s Eco-Fabulous Fashion show at Lexus Rivercenter. I know I had a blast! Click here to check out pics Metromix took! If you were there and got pics in our photobooth, click here to go to our Facebook page and tag yourself in the photo album!

The clothes were amazing, the crowd was big and the event was a huge success. Basically the concept of the event was to have a fashion show featuring clothes made by DAAP students out of re-purposed materials. We also had other eco-friendly vendors there to shop with. Swag bag were for sale and we raffled off a weekend lease of a loaded RX. 100% of those proceeds went to the Civic Garden Center. We raised almost $800 for them with this event! So excited!

And because of the "Eco-Fabulous" theme, we were able to feature the new Lexus 2011 CT 200h. It's sleek, sexy and oh-so-much-more sustainable. Just an FYI, the new CT is the most efficient luxury hybrid Lexus offers. It pairs a combined MPG rating of 42 with lower CO2 emissions... without skimping on all the things Lexus is known for: speed, technology and luxury. It's really a great car.

I love that people came for the fashion, and left with lots of ideas for how they can go green! Can't wait for our next event at Lexus RiverCenter, which will be May 6 for the Cincinnati Profile Bourbon/Cigar Tasting!
