Designer Marisol supports 'Avant Garde Going Green' show
Nov '13
Marisol Deluna returned to her hometown San Antonio, Texas to support the Avant Garde Going Green Gowns Exhibition during San Antonio Fashion Week, and she used the event to mentor local Girl Scouts.  The New York fashion designer presented a multi-tiered gown made of 135 feet of color printed recycled paper adorned with designs she has created for Girl Scouts of the USA uniforms.

Marisol collaborated with Girl Scout volunteer Ida De La Rosa Spence who oversees the garment production for the Marisol Deluna New York label alongside six girls of various ages for 20 hours to create the gown.  Lauren Shipley, Julia Gulley, Victoria Morales, Ariel DePeri, Bailey Eichelbaum, Clarissa Longoria and model Stephanie Foresman, a former Girl Scout, participated.

The finale gown was presented at the Texas A&M- San Antonio Educational & Cultural Arts Center and will be on display at the Marisol Deluna 25 Years in Fashion event on November 14, 2014 at the McNay Art Museum.

Marisol Deluna has a special relationship with Girl Scouts of the USA having designed a number of unique items for this American institution, including official uniform accessories.  A former Girl Scout, Marisol mentors youth interested in fashion internationally.

"When asked to participate in the event, my first instinct was to design a dress with local Girl Scouts interested in earning a fashion badge.  Mentoring is a privilege." said Ms. Deluna.  She added, "As a child, creative projects had a lasting impact on me.  The girls expressed pride as our model walked the runway and took center stage themselves.  I hope the experience fosters confidence in these girls which is a core mission of the Girl Scouts."

"We are thankful for Marisol's leadership and always sharing her talent with Girl Scouts.  As part of our 100th anniversary Girl/Expo fashion project and the GSUSA National Convention in Houston to officially unveil her centennial designs, she was a big hit with the girls." said Rose Gonzalez Perez, CEO of Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas.
