Why This Blog?
Who has the time to obsess over the right length of the dress or if the heels of the stilettos are five inches or not, when the planet is spinning with issues like world hunger, climate change, and water shortages? But fashion isn’t something that manifests in dresses only. The late great Coco Chanel once said, “Fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, and how we relate to the world around us.” The world of eco fashion is moving forward as we live. Every day there is a new development in sustainable fabrics, dyes, presses, etc. Consider an innovative designer creating a glam, socially aware collection. Or imagine a boutique modeling their business towards making ethical clothing more easily accessible. Picture a celebrity walking down the red-carpet adorned in a stunning gown, which the media declares the style statement of the season. Or just think about someone picking up her first pair of organic jeans, and instantly falling in love with it. The possibilities are endless. Really, every day, a new “ Eco-Fashionista” is born.
