fashion008 Art Nouveau on Organic by Tierra Del Forte
Above, Tierra Del Forte’s new organic tank which features her signature art noveau prints with a delicately printed ‘Del Forte’ logo.

Of course my buddy Tierra does it up right with organic cotton. Not only that – she’s also donating 5 bucks from the sale of every tank to the Sustainable Cotton Project.

Interested in a little background on Tierra? Check her out on GFashion.

Summer’s Friday Style Tip – G Clean

summerfashion002 Summers Friday Style Tip   G Clean
The left coast is banning non G stuff left and right. Last week Santa Monica banned styrofoam, and just yesterday California banned the caustic dry cleaning chemical perchloroethylene (perc as they call it in the industry). Perc’s a nasty potential carcinogen that’s now found in 1 in 10 California wells – ick.

While the ban is good news to G fashionistas in Cali (yay!), it isn’t fully in effect until 2023 (shucks.). Here are a few tips to help sort out the dry cleaning conundrum and prolong the life of your G duds:

Frocks that Rock: Angela Johnson

fashion004 Frocks that Rock:  Angela Johnson

There’s something really captivating about designer Angela Johnson‘s sense of style. Self-described as “punk couture,” “vintage inspired” and “kitschy ready-to-wear,” Angela’s gowns exude feminity “but with a dark side.” So if you tend to gravitate towards the adventurous style of Gwen Stefani over the classic appeal of Nicole Kidman, look no further than these bold-n-beautiful gowns refashioned from vintage fabrics. Images after the link Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos

Homina Homina! Supayana!

aa recycledfashions Homina Homina! Supayana!
(via fabulouslygreen) I’ve fallen hook, line and sinker for these flirty, fashion-forward tops by Supayana. Yana Gorbulsky is the designer phenom behind this self-proclaimed line of vintage-modern streetwear. A Brooklynite by way of Moscow, Yana learned to sew trendy outfits for her dolls and stuffed animals as a little girl in Russia. She moved on to fashioning pieces for herself, then selling limited editions on eBay every Tuesday (catch her weekly auctions here!), to selling nationally in celeb-favorites like NY-based Girl Shop boutique or online eco-boutique Sodafine.

Clean Air – Always in Fashion

fashion0023 Clean Air   Always in Fashion

Project Runways Andrae Gonzalo wasn’t the only one who showed up at the Wilshire Ebel Club in LA to support the Coalition for Clean Air’s Eco-fashion show. We had Ed Begley Jr., Pat Morrison, and around 20 of California’s Top public officials – including wacky ‘runway model’ Burbank Mayor Todd Campbell.

Eco-fashion was auctioned off the backs of all the runway models (aka public officials) to raise money for the coalitions goal: restoring clean air to California. Designers included Carol Young of Undesgined, Debbie Brosenne of Taxi CDC, Stewart + Brown, Indigenous Designs, and more.

Below, two dresses from Project Runway’s “waste not, want not” episode which were also auctioned off for the G-cause.

Adventures of the Urban Nomad

fashion carolyoung Adventures of the Urban Nomad

Carol Young designs for the “urban nomad.” Definition: The urbanite greenie professional who looks fabulous while taking to the road, bus, bike, public trans, or all of the above. Carol definitely makes it happen, especially with her Bamboo Denim Trouser.

Sure, they look good, but are they really that functional? Well, just ask your friendly neighborhood eco-fashionista (um, me).

I tried on my first pair of Bamboo Trousers last week during the GLiving shoot and I’ve barely taken them off since. Below, a few things I’ve done the past two weeks while wearing Carol’s denim trousers:

Moo Shoes: Vegan Chic

fashion 0999 Moo Shoes: Vegan Chic

Vegan chic? Sounds like a misnomer but guess again. Enter NYC-based Moo Shoes, an online boutique that offers a broad range of cruelty-free, fashion-forward shoes, belts, clothing. I discovered them after a two-year search for stylin’ faux leather boots and fell in love instead with a few of their retro-inspired pumps and multi-toned sneakers. Sisters Erica and Sara Kubersky founded the business in 2001, where their first on-the-ground boutique was ironically located in a former butcher shop! They’ve since moved to a spot in lower East Manhattan, but will ship products virtually anywhere by UPS. Lots available for guys and dolls alike at surpringly affordable prices.

Keepin’ it wheel

Paint the town green with accessories made from recycled inner tube tires. Hardly any new resources used, and the old inner tubes come from discarded truck and tractor tires – which usually have around 60,000 miles on them before Heather English saves ‘em from landfills. The Fan Belt is pictured above accompanied by The Cruiser.
