Hi all! As you all know, April is really the month where eco-fashion is celebrated due to Earth Day, but there are also a ton of eco-fashion events happening over the summer! Read below...
July 27 - NYC: Elle, Aveeno and Kaight have partnered up to bring you Summer Nights Style where you can get a style consultation from the Aveeno Hair Care eco-friendly celebrity stylist and shop the season's latest at Kaight.
July 29 - NYC: Sustainable Fashion and Textiles Workshop at the Pratt Institute, designed to give you an in-depth review of current practices and innovations, clarity on the various sustainability claims made by companies, an understanding of new business opportunities, and professional development.
August 4-7 - Montreal: The Montreal Fashion & Design Festival is sure to be exciting with fashion shows followed by live performances from well-known artists, parties, and a Shopping Rally in downtown's trendiest boutiques.
Now - Sept 22nd - Online: The Green By Design Summer Light Challenge is for all you eco-lovers! The challenge is to select only 10 pieces of clothing to wear for the entire summer and to share your mix-and-match pieces with the rest of the eco-fashion community. Can you do it?
Sept 28-30 - Vancouver: Eco Fashion Week Vancouver 2010! Need I say more?
The Eco Index - Consumers have always had a difficult time really understanding what makes one product "green" and another one not. So 100 well-known apparel brands and retailers have developed a software tool to help them measure the environmental impact of their apparel and footwear, from raw material to garbage dump. The companies are hoping to standardize "eco-value" across brands, just like the Energy Star rating on appliances.
Give + Take boutique in the LA area is now offering a unique eco-friendly AND recession-friendly way for women to shop! For just $25 a month (yup, $ per month and not $ per item!) , you can trade in your lightly-used clothing to get something you love in the process, without losing money in the process. This could be the start of a new kind of boutique huh?
ok that's it from me this week! Have a great weekend everyone =)
