ECO-FASHION HAS INFILTRATED SOME OF THE WORLD’S
MOST PRESTIGIOUS FASHION SHOWS. WE HAVE A LOOK AT THE
DESIGNERS MAKING A SUSTAINABLE SPLASH ON THE CATWALK.
NEW YORK The Big Apple looked decidedly green during the 2010 New York
Fashion Week. Ten designers were invited to participate in The Green Shows
at Metropolitan Pavilion, displaying their eco-friendly, ethical collections. This
included Miami-based designer Luis Valenzuela, who transforms recycled
objects, such as lampshades, into elegant dresses.
LONDON Now in its ninth season, Esthetica is the hub of London’s ethical
fashion industry. It provides a showcase at London Fashion Week for the most
innovative, up-and-coming designers to showcase their green wares. Among the
hottest new labels introduced for spring/summer 2011 is luxury eco-bag brand
Lost Property of London, which takes abandoned everyday fabrics and transforms
them into fashionable, yet practical, accessories.
VANCOUVER 2010 This year marked the first-ever Eco Fashion Week held in
Vancouver, which is set to become a biannual event. It featured a selection of the
best ethical designers from throughout the world, with star attendees of the ilk
of supermodel Gisele Bundchen. London designer Emesha Nagy (who formerly
worked with Vivienne Westwood and Jasper Conran) delivered one of the most
striking collections, marked by asymmetric lines and soft tailoring.
