LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In celebration of National Hydrogen Day today, DriveH2, the public service initiative by environmental nonprofit Energy Independence Now (EIN), announced a unique new partnership with Los Angeles Fashion Week (LAFW) and the Petersen Automotive Museum. The three organizations will co-host an opening night gala in celebration of green fashion and the zero-emission movement in March of 2022.
The event will take place at the Petersen Museum, and will feature a variety of cutting edge, zero-emission vehicles alongside a future-themed eco-fashion show. Sustainably-minded stars will also be in attendance, including DriveH2 Ambassador Ronen Rubinstein, star of FOX’s 9-1-1: Lone Star.
“The focus of the DriveH2 movement is to bring awareness to the zero-emission choices we can make in our day-to-day lives,” said Brian Goldstein, EIN’s Executive Director. “What you choose to wear and drive has a direct impact on our planet and future. This gala will be a fun, collaborative celebration of the many ways we can fight climate change, as individuals and as a community. By joining forces with our friends at LAFW and the Petersen, we’ll highlight how various industries are adopting sustainable practices without sacrificing style.”
“Thoughtful, responsible fashion is the wave of the future,” said Arthur Chipman, Executive Producer of Los Angeles Fashion Week. “The fashion industry is moving in the direction of sustainability and we are so excited to share the work of the world’s leading design talent for what promises to be a beautiful and groundbreaking event.”
“We’ve already been partnering with DriveH2 and LA Fashion Week separately on other successful events and education initiatives,” said Michael Bodell, the Petersen Automotive Museum’s Chief Operating Officer. “It made sense to combine forces for a special, sustainability-focused event for LAFW next March, something we are honored to host at the Petersen.”
More details about this unique, star-studded opening night will be announced in the coming weeks.
