The last thing designer Seth Aaron Henderson wants you to do is take him or his work too literally. The Season 7 Project Runway winner will be unveiling a runway line that pays homage to solar technology. This line, however, isn’t heavy on the solar panels though. Set to debut at Portland Fashion Week in October—Henderson’s first show since his television win in spring—the 15-piece collection features designs inspired by the event’s sponsor, SolarWorld, which will in turn be unfurling a runway composed of its new reflective black panels.
When Henderson debuts his line at Portland Fashion Week in October, what the audience will get is a visual interpretation of photovoltaic panels, not a “literal replication,” he says. In keeping with the event’s theme, “Solar is the New Black,” the catwalk will be paved with Solarworld’s new, sleek, high-performance solar panels.
Henderson will be joined by fellow Project Runway alumni Jonathan Peters and Jay Sario, all of whom will be presenting their first collections since their television appearances.
Ecouterre is proud to be an official media sponsor of Portland Fashion Week.
His line will be debuting a year after fashion megahouse Chanel revealed their solar inspired line and runway show in France. Let’s stay tuned to see what other wonderful creations solar energy will inspire!
