WIW. Forecastle Festival Style

 

 

This new section of my blog, dutifully titled What I Wore will simply highlight a look I recently wore that I deemed worthy enough to share on The Chic Street.

There will be no briefing on the latest trend, or detailed account of why I styled the ensemble in such a manner (unless I am feeling particularly frisky that day).

Keeping it simple.

Forecastal Festival. Design for Change

If you read this post on Anchal Project, you are well-acquainted with how the company is bringing about social and economical change with repurposed, cotton saris. This week, The Chic Street is teaming up with Anchal, and Revelry Boutique Gallery for the event, Festival Fashion for Good.

With InStyle Magazine recently naming the bandana as this year’s hottest festival fashion trend, me and Josh Johnson of The Kentucky Gent will be giving tips and tricks on how to style Anchal Project bandanas at the event on Wednesday, July 13.

“We are excited to partner with one of our favorite local boutiques and retail partners, Revelry,” says Colleen Clines, Anchal’s Co-founder and CEO. Colleen adds, “Festival season is such a fun time to experiment with your style and we want to help guests express their individuality with our one-of-a-kind pieces that are changing lives.”

The event will raise awareness for sustainable fashion,  while also allowing the local community and festival-goers to support Louisville’s own Anchal Project. Representation from The Forecastle Foundation will be in attendance as well as a professional henna tattoo artist to complete the whole festival look.
