Cocktails for Conservation 2018 Recap

Kelly Zwicker

By Kelly Zwicker

Hello all, 

Our Cocktails for Conservation event had fresh new faces out to support both the mission of Fashion for Conservation (FFC), and honoring the conservation efforts of 501 (c)(3) non-profit Hoja Nueva. 

The event was held at the Capitol Hill location of the Riveter. The small aesthetic details of the venue mixed well with the amazonian theme of the night, even down to the herbal cocktails.

What made it all special? A speech given by both FFC founder Ava Holmes as well as Hoja Nueva founder Samantha Zwicker. Samantha's speech was both educational and inspiring, as she went through her presentation of her proud moments with ocelot Khan, her mentorship with her interns and their unique projects at her eco-lodge, or sharing some of the amazing wildlife that populates in her backyard in Peru. 

Interested in learning more? Find Hoja Nueva's website here for more information. 

We appreciate our sponsors so much, that come out to our events and provide great experiences for our guests! We had free beauty treatments from Vann Edge and chocolate tasting from Indi Chocolates. We love collaborating with local businesses. If you are interested, we would love to hear from you! 

Speaking of chocolate, Hoja Nueva practices sustainable agroforestry and cacao production, and cacao is the most sustainable crop in Peru. The history of cacao cultivation is thousands of years old in that particular area! To learn more about cacao and Hoja Nueva's plans for future permaculture projects, visit here

Enjoy some more snapshots of the night below! Special thanks to Janice Cabrera for DJ services, KIND, Belanof, LOLA, GTS Kombucha, Vann Edge Salon, Microsoft, and Indi Chocolates for contributing to a wonderful night! 

What would a fashion event be without a mini photoshoot? We had three lovely models (Marie Johansen, Yuliana Kelley, and Andria Liann) supporting the cause, and weaving through the crowd throughout the party. 

Makeup for the night was done by Francesca Belgrano. The gold details of the face and body makeup created a stunning finish!

We truly believe in the bridging of fashion and conservation, and partnering with Hoja Nueva has been eye-opening for what we can do to contribute to conservation on a larger scale. We as individuals, consumers in the fashion industry, have the ability to make very important, sustainable decisions. 

By focusing on the Amazon Rainforest specifically, we can make big changes towards stopping deforestation, which threatens entire ecosystems. Sharing and spreading the word in even the community of Seattle is an amazing start! 

A big thank you to everyone that attended Wednesday's event, and we hope to see you all at the Fashion for Conservation gala in September!

Cocktails for Conservation: A Can't Miss Seattle Event

Kelly Zwicker

Hello all, 

Fashion for Conservation is excited to announce our Cocktails for Conservation event this Wednesday the 30th, at 7:30 pm. The venue is the Riveter in Capitol Hill, an exciting new collaboration for us in the Seattle area.

Why should you be there? 

There will be chocolate and cacao tasting by Indi Chocolates, local and international artisans showcasing their work, and Amazonian inspired specialty cocktails by Root Kin Remedy. There will also be free beauty treatments provided by Vann Edge Salon. 

This event is one of many to introduce the goal of bridging concrete and Amazonian jungles with representatives from Amazon Inc., Vann Edge, Fashion for Conservation and Hoja Nueva.

Why Seattle? 

Both Fashion for Conservation and Hoja Nueva's domestic base is Seattle, and we are aiming to spread the word and expand our mission starting here in our home city. We want to educate the Seattle community on sustainability development, eco-fashion, and conservation as well as celebrate with the community as we reach our milestones. 

Is there a theme or dress code to the event? 

We aim for business casual, or in other words, authentically fabulous. As for our theme, the night will be inspired by the Amazon jungle, to showcase the conservation efforts at the Hoja Nueva eco-lodge in the Madre de Dios region in Peru. 

Will a new fashion line be premiered at the event? 

Fashion for Conservation’s 4th Annual Rainforest Gala (that will be held in September 2018) will feature six international designers inspired by the Amazon. The event will be an announcement and pre-celebration of who these designers will be. How exciting! 

Join us for a night of collaboration, inspiration, and education on conservation efforts and future events with Fashion for Conservation. We hope to see you there!
