So, what can the green fashionista look forward to, fashionwise, in the spring/summer of 2008? If you were at Econouveau, a “collection of the most innovative eco-fashion designers in a non-traditional runway show crafted for an audience of 1,500 international press, buyers and eco-conscious celebrities and influencers”, this past weekend, you’d be in the know. But if you weren’t, don’t fret. G Living was there on your behalf.
In depth coverage is coming soon. But here’s a sneaky preview:
Los Angeles-based designer Amanda Shi kicked off the night with the latest offerings from Avita. The theme of her collection, Global Fairyland, featured a lot of pretty pastels, mini dresses, knits and florals — many of them made from her fave eco-fabric, organic cottons.
New York designer Bahar Shahpar provided a more structured look with her ready-to-wear collection featuring plunge cocktail dresses in silk crepe de chine, pleated smocks in silk chameuse and puckered shorts in yarn dyed organic cotton/Tencel poplin.
Rounding off the show was a lovely bit of haute couture all the way from London town. Designer Gary Harvey wowed audiences with his incredible one-of-a-kind designs, from a dress made from 42 pairs of Levi’s® to a gown consisting of 18 Burberry macs to a newspaper dress made from 30 copies of the Financial Times.
And if your budget won’t allow you to acquire designer labels, here’s a tip straight from the designers: why not re-fashion a classic old blazer lying dormant in the closet by simply stitching on some big buttons?
As for the rest…you’ll just have to tune in to The Real G.
