Happy 4th of July weekend everyone! I hope you're all headed to the beach to see fireworks Here's our weekly eco-fashion wrap-up!
Retail: Soleil Moon Frye, of Punky Brewster fame, opened up an eco-friendly children's boutique called The Little Seed in Los Angeles. After having difficulty finding great organic and non-toxic items for her first child, she has decided to open up a place where "parents can come find products that are safe for their children, as well as good for the planet."
Found via Magnifeco, the vegan shoe designer duo Cri de Coeur have launched a new line called Hearts of Darkness, which is ethically produced from start to finish. All of their shoes are reasonably priced under $100, and I absolutely love their adorable Enchant Ankle Tie Flat - the colors are fabulous!
Blogosphere: In the upcoming movie, 'Eat, Pray, Love,' Julia Robert's character goes eco-friendly by carrying a Hobo Bag made from repurposed Kantha quilts and lined with vintage saris by fair trade artisans in India. I can see why the costumer designers of the movie chose this bag - it's pretty awesome!
Also on the blogosphere this week...two major starlets gave us the scoop on their favorite eco-friendly designers. Emmanuelle Chriqui (known as Sloan on Entourage) says she is constantly wearing Alexx Jae for Milk in an interview with EcoStiletto. According to Ecouterre, Emily Deschanel (from Bones) says that she wears tons of Loyale tops, Bahar Shahpar skirts & dresses, and Beyond Skin or Olsenhaus shoes.
It's so nice to hear that celebrities are really grasping the eco-friendly fashion bit. We sure hope they add c. marchuska onto their list!
