If you haven’t noticed the craziness of Fashion Week you must be living under a rock.  This season we also had a great line of GreenShows premiering in the Metropolitan Pavilion, and hosted by our very best friends Ecouterre.com

The GreenShows is the premiere fashion event exclusively committed to eco-friendly, ethically sound, fair-trade fashion.  The GreenShows produces a comprehensive canvas for full-length runway shows featuring an edited selection of designers. 

I was fortunate enough to attend the Bright Young Things show this evening, and it was an exciting experience.  Off the bat I met a friendly, conversationalist who was very excited to receive free Hydration Cream by amika.  Then I saw the esteemed Carol Cho from BurdaStyle and Greta Eagan from FashionMeGreen.  All who attended were electrified with excitement and buzzing with anticipation to see Eliza Starbuck’s new designs. 

I was in great company and great clothes.  Eliza Starbuck, the designer, tailored 8 garments that were molded and folded frontward, backward, and inside out to create 16 beautiful, unique looks.  Bright Young Things is a collection that quenches our craving for creativity.  The point and purpose of this line is to design for the girl who has a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear in mind.  Eliza intertwines versatility and sustainability into each piece.  Bright Young Things began as one “little black dress” and is now 8 pieces that allows you to “shop your own closet”.

 

First of all, a HUGE thank you to everyone who came out for Fashion’s Night Out: “Celebrating Slow”.  The night was a huge success and all the panelists, designers, and workshop leaders had a great time and the energy was electric.  We had a great turnout for Hacking Sustainable Fashion and the Slow Fashion Panel could not have had a more intrigued audience.  The Textile Arts Center is so pleased with how the night went that we are having another event this Friday!  Don’t forget to check out the amazing textile artwork at Cutting Edge: A Celebration of Fiber Friday from 8-11pm curated by Joetta Maue.

For those that were unable to come to this amazing event don’t fret we documented the whole thing.  And if you still want to purchase from your favorite designers, all of them are online!
