Arts & Venues Cultural Fashion Runway Series: Mottainai

McNichols Building

03/12/2022 · 7:00PM

On March 12, the Cultural Fashion Runway Series highlights the Japanese concept of mottainai, encompassing the idea of respecting resources rather than excessive waste. Local designer Rachael Levine’s studio ARAE exemplifies this practice through her design development. Levine is a textile artist with a focus on shibori and fabric dyeing techniques that she uses for her signature, one-of-a-kind art-to-wear collection. This sustainable fashion runway show will also showcase vintage kimonos from the Nikkei Treasures collection. Prior to the runway show, attendees are invited to peruse the wabi-sabi vendor marketplace which will feature local artists from across Colorado.



VIP: includes front row seating, entry to the marketplace at 7 p.m., early seating at 8:30 p.m., one free beverage and a reusable Arts & Venues rag bag featuring swag items such as a silk mottainai shibori hair scrunchie designed by Rachael Levine, a happy ducks face mask designed by Morn Chear and other items.
