Bauder College Runway Show emphasizes eco fashion
May '09
Up-and-coming Atlantan student designers showcased their top designs at a runway fashion show and portfolio exposition on Friday, May 15, at Bauder Black Tie, the 31st annual Bauder College student fashion and design event.

This year, the show promoted environmentally-friendly fashion and living by honoring local entrepreneurs and philanthropists whose foundations and businesses emphasize sustainable living and protecting the environment. Honorees included Ovie Mughelli, Atlanta Falcons full back and founder of the Ovie Mughelli Project; Kathleen Plate, owner of Smart Glass Jewelry; Ilona Cardona, owner of A Tisket A Tasket; and more.

“The students did an outstanding job displaying artistic work that represents the level of excellence we have come to expect of Bauder College students,” said Reginald Morton, president of Bauder College. “It was especially rewarding to see the work of our alumni and the progress they've made in their careers.”

Students from the fashion design, fashion merchandising, graphic design, business administration and interior design programs were judged on their garments, portfolios or presentations by local industry professionals. A winning student from each program was selected and awarded the Bauder College Golden Hands Award.

Along with top student designs, the runway also featured garments and hats made from “green” materials, including eco children's wear from Green Pomegranate, hats made from recyclable materials from Tisket A Tasket, and custom dresses created with recycled glass and Coca-Cola products designed by Plate. Musical group Kwiet Storm and soloist Natasha Bradley, of Atlanta-based J-Pat Management, also gave live performances during the fashion show.

“I'm honored to be a featured designer for this year's Bauder Black Tie,” said Plate. “I hope that my dresses inspire the students to see the world as limitless in its opportunities so they themselves can become leaders within the fashion industry and work towards a sustainable future for our planet.”

Honored businesses/philanthropists:
• Karen Briggs, owner of Green Pomegranate
• Holly Elmore, of Green Foodservice Alliance
• Stephanie Armistead, of Green Business Works
• Tony Anderson of “Let's Raise a Million”
