Carbondale Arts has done it again! All three nights of the Green is the New Black Fashion Extravaganza were sold out. “Mirror Mirror” was especially dialed after a three-year hiatus following 2020’s cancellation the night before opening, due to COVID-19. Designers, dancers, artists and audiences mingled in a wild retelling of classic fairytales, framing 28 fantastic fashion lines with an eye toward upcycling and environmental consciousness. The major fundraiser raised a lot of fun, as always.
