Eco-Friendly Fashion Rocks the Runway
The fashion industry often gets a bad rep when it comes to being environmentally friendly. However, this is beginning to drastically change with the fashion industry going green in so many aspects. With green cosmetics, magazine articles, and clothing, the industry that is often accused of being so wasteful is turning their act around. At the beginning of this month, New York Fashion week premiered the Greenshows, back for their third season.
The Greenshows is a segment of New York’s fashion week dedicated to eco-friendly designers. The three-day show aims to send the message that high fashion can still be achieved while making a minimal impact on the environment, exciting news for the “eco conscious” consumer! This season the Greenshows consisted of 10 designers, all with different interpretations of what sustainable fashion is. However different the interpretations, all share the common ground of being creative and eco-friendly. Designs included beautiful dresses made completely out of recycled materials like newspaper and boxes. Other more “wearable” items were simply made from organic threads. The shows not only focus on clothing, but models were treated to eco friendly make up and hair products as well. Shown to work just as good as non eco-friendly products, why not treat them to products that are better for the models and the environment?
People are really excited about the Greenshows and the trend is catching on! More and more designers are pushing to be eco-friendly and buyers are able to make better decisions when purchasing these products. So go ahead and buy yourself some eco-friendly clothes, you and the environment deserve it!
