The Green Room Society (GRS) of the Adrienne Arsht Center is living up to its name – literally. This past Saturday (June 27, 2009), Green Room Society members and their guests attended “Saving the Planet with Style,” an event that combined fashion, art, music and cuisine with one purpose in mind: to build a better world. The “green” event took place at the en vogue Stay at Lincoln Hotel on Miami Beach, the brainchild of GRS committee member Ernesto Arguello, and was attended by more than 100 GRS members. Organized by the Madave Fashion Group and hosted by GRS, the soiree benefited the International Rescue Committee (IRC) with the intention of using positive thought and human compassion together with art to make the world a better place.
The three-day engagement began on Thursday with a focus on fashion. Trendy and environmentally friendly swimsuits, clothing, jewelry and handbag lines were all presented at the creative fair with enthusiastic response. The highlight, Saturday night’s exclusive Green Room Society event, featured a scene alive with the fascinating live silk-screen work of Rocky Grimes served up alongside 42 Below Vodka cocktails, Vitamin Water Tranquilo beverages and Grolsch Beer. Newly minted Green Room Society members walked away with their very own personalized “Go Green with the Green Room Society” recyclable tote bags, all printed live by Grimes. It was truly a magical event and Madave has confirmed that “Saving the Planet with Style” will be back again next year! Until then, the members of GRS are glad to be helping to save the planet – with impeccable style, of course.
