What We Do
Sol is dedicated to walk the talk in all we do. We approach all of our fashion events and runway shows with the highest standards in sustainability and ethics. Constantly growing, we work for total integrity by implementing zero-waste practices in all of our events from start to finish– as well as encouraging and emphasizing green practices for all involved, including models, designers, beauticians, stylists and attendees. Striving to keep up on the inside industry, we work side by side with experts in the field, to bring about the best tools in education, workshops, and events in eco-fashion to the Twin Cities.
