New York’s Fashion Week: Going Green

So, Fashion Week has officially started in New York City. And if you’re a fan of eco fashion, then you won’t want to miss some of the innovative and sustainable designs that will be hitting the runways this week.

Like, for instance, One Little Black Dress. The designer, Eliza Starbuck, has created a dress under her label, Bright Young Things, that can be worn 365 ways. It’s quite possibly the most sustainable dress on the market right now.

Once you head over to the Bright Young Things site, and click through the pictures to see how many different ways this piece can be worn, you start to get excited. Really excited. It’s amazing to me how this one black piece can look so different when you add different shoes and accessories.

Here are some more examples, courtesy of Bright Young Things:

I now want one. They’re $185 each, and all are made locally in New York. Eliza Starbuck is a big believer in slow fashion, so each dress is made to order, which lowers product waste.

There are more eco fashion designers that are premiering this week. You can see a complete list at The Green Shows, a site dedicated to the Green designers that will be featured during Fashion Week. I’ll keep you guys updated on what’s going on eco-wise over the next few days!
