Fashionably eco friendly!!

Jan 8, 2009

Eco friendly Fabrics swatches
I'm so glad to learn that there's a trend towards environmentally- friendly and organic products. People these days are more and more conscious about taking care of our planet which I think is great to see! That consciousness is growing in FASHION too. Fashion designers are using more eco friendly fabrics and of course, they're creating beautiful pieces with them as well.
Designers such as Phillip Lim, Alessandro Devito and Lika Volkova, the duo behind the young label "Sans", also Esse Kamm, who brings her handcrafted artistry to an eco project in Panama and the well known Stella MacCartney with her "Green" clothing line. Accessories are also following this trend. We see more eco-friendly purses, tote bags, clutches, shoes, etc. I think it's very important as young designers to get involved into this eco friendly fashion movement; we are the new generation and younger designers are also going to look towards us and follow our example. Not only as designers, but also as human beings, what kind of planet are we going to leave to our children? A much better one must be the goal. I personally love to include fabrics such as organic cotton, bamboo, soy, silk, etc. into my fabric choices because they blend nicely and drape beautifully over the body and the most important of all, they are good for our environment.
I also buy more eco friendly products and recycle as much as I can. I think we can make a difference even starting with
basic stuff such as avoiding
plastic bags when we go shopping, using eco friendly products for cleaning our house, saving energy, etc.
