Get Green in Vegas: Eco and Compassionate Fashion Show August. 26

vegas.jpgLas Vegas-based fashion designer, Julia Szkiba O'Connor, will produce "Green Vegas," an eco and compassionate fashion show, to take place during the Eco Trade Show on August 26, 2007 in Las Vegas.

Szkiba O'Connor is a freelance fashion designer and graphic artist who specializes in eco-related designs for various clients nationwide. She also consults new and upcoming designers and fashion entrepreneurs giving them insight into the benefits of "going organic," as well as developing business strategies for clients eager to promote and produce products that are eco-friendly.

In addition to her design and consulting work, O'Connor is a part-time Fashion Design Instructor at the International Academy of Design & Technology-Las Vegas (IADT). Green Vegas is an opportunity for her fashion students to gain "real world" experience in fashion. Newer students will work as fashion stylists and hair and make-up artists; while seniors will serve in leadership roles such as Fashion Director, Head Fashion Stylist, and Student Volunteer Manager.

Because Szkiba O'Connor's industry connections include many cruelty-free and eco-friendly Fashion Companies, students have been giving an opportunity to develop a keen sense of their future in the Fashion Industry as Designers who are aware of the environmental benefits of organic fabric vs. conventional fabric and real leather vs. faux fabrics, etc.
"Green Vegas" and the Eco Fashion Show are open to the public. Registration is required by August 17th by visiting the official event website at

Meet Crosby Noricks

Hi. I'm Crosby, Founder of PR Couture, Fashion Brand Strategist and PR Girl Mentor. I care about supporting and celebrating fashion publicists as well as helping companies connect with their audiences in more meaningful ways. Recently, iMedia included me in their annual list of 25 Internet Marketing Leaders and Innovators, along with people from Starbucks, Twitter and Volkswagon, which I think is pretty neat. Like Elle Woods, I am a Gemini-vegetarian (that's about where the similarities end). Let's connect: Check out my full bio, Brand Elixir sessions for brands or shoot me a note at
