The Green is the New Black fashion show in Carbondale is in its eighth year. The two-day event starts tomorrow. For first-time and experienced models alike, the event is one that means a lot for community members. Marcia Flaks has been a fan of the event since she moved to Carbondale from New York a few years ago, but she got a little bit more involved after a visit from her daughter.
