Green Shows – NY fashion Week.

Green Shows – NY fashion Week.

“The Green Shows” at New York Fashion week, are a selection of collections hand chosen by organisers that display eco-friendly, ethically sound, and fair trade characteristics in their nature.

During this weeks Spring shows, 10 designers were given the opportunity to display their entire collections to an audience of influential editors, buyers and fashion VIP’s.

After previewing the beautiful works including 
Bright Young ThingsDress Reform, and Samantha Pleet, I was especially attracted to the label, Auralis’. This collection to me was the most suitable for casual wearability, and was strongly influenced by the designers Puerto Ricon roots.

All garments made from 
Recycled hemp, organic cotton, soy jersey, and peace silk. Just gorgeous!
