“Nutria-palooza!”: Righteous Fur Fashion Events
In 2010, Righteous Fur produced three multimedia fashion shows at the Marigny Theatre and the prestigious Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans. All sold out, and garnered lots of favorable press for our signature Nutria-palooza! event, which makes “environmental issues sexy,” as one reviewer put it.
But what really put Righteous Fur on the map was taking the show to New York. In November, 2010, Nutria-palooza! played to an enthusiastic crowd at Brooklyn’s House of Yes, where models hit the runway in fabulous nutria fashions by Louisiana and New York designers. Among them: New York Times writer Leanne Shear, who wrote about her experience in We Model Nutria Fur in Brooklyn.
Stay tuned for details about upcoming Nutria-palooza! shows in Lafayette, Louisiana, in November 2011; in Austin, Texas, in January 2012; and in Atlanta, Georgia, in June 2012. Meanwhile, enjoy the photo archive!
