The AIGA holds its San Francisco Fall Gala on Nov. 15, 2007. The theme is “The Afterlife, Paper, Purgatory and the Great Beyond.” Discuss. The AIGA is currently seeking submissions from designers for the gala fashion show. Here’s the twist: each entry must be made completely of paper or a paper product that has been used at least once. So no stealing a ream of unused paper from your office. Try saving up those toilet paper rolls instead. Each selected design will be featured in the runway show and auctioned off at the event. Proceeds benefit the AIGA.
If you’re feeling your inner green crafty fashionista coming on, get ta sketching. The deadline is Sept. 21, 2007. Here’s the entry form with all the pertinent information: Afterlife Designer Form.pdf
