By now you’ve heard of the In Exchange fair trade store located on the uptown campus, but if you haven’t been in a while, there’s an opportunity to become reacquainted with all the cool stuff that’s available.
This Friday (March 25) at Republic New Orleans, In Exchange founder and Tulane alumna Erica Trani takes her fair trade fashions to the runway with The In Exchange Ethical Fashion Show, “where fashionistas and do-gooders unite.” Trani promises a showing of fair trade fashions from India and Nepal modeled to the music of Big History and Royal Teeth.
Be sure to check out other shows coming up during this week’s NOLA Fashion Week!
If the party scene isn’t your cup of tea, you may be interested in volunteer opportunities, fun at the Audubon Zoo or the mindful discussions highlighting the annual Black Arts Festival sponsored by the Tulane Black Student Union.
At the height of the festival, which begins on Thursday (March 24), is a keynote address from CNN political commentator and Democratic political strategist, Donna Brazile, who will lead a discussion on the life goals and future of the black college student. Her talk, “Finding Ourselves: The Direction of the Black Academic,” will be held on Monday (March 28) at 6 p.m. in McAlister Auditorium.
