Weekly Eco-Fashion Update – July 15th

Happy Friday guys :) It's time for the weekly update!

Retail: WearAgain.co.uk is launching an eco-fashion boutique which will sell gently used and recycled new clothing for men, women and children. Products will include top quality fashion from popular High Street retailers, designer labels, and vintage sources.


According to the LA Times, baby eco-fashion is coming to Target! For those earth-conscious parents, the Little Seed and Baby Buggy lines have just debuted and they offer budget-friendly choices for eco-friendly babywear.

Blogosphere: Happy 10th Anniversary, Net-a-Porter! To celebrate, the originator of high fashion e-commerce threw a lavish fete in its new London office and invited notable fans such as Victoria Beckham and designers including Christopher Bailey, Christopher Kane and Roland Mouret. Check out Net-a-Porter's magazine for the special anniversary issue which tours the major fashion highlights over the past decade.

Marie-Claire Magazine (UK edition) published its Top 10 in eco-fashion this month. It includes some amazing designers, including Stella McCartney (of course!), Edun, and People Tree. We hope c. marchuska one day makes it to the list!

Brought together by Elle Magazine, Diane Von Furstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger, Rogan, Loomstate, Loeffler Randall, and Vena Cava worked with Sheila Kennedy, the director of the Portable Light Project, to design nine solar purses that supply both light and power. All the bags are being auctioned of on Ebay, with proceeds going to Portable Light Project's mission of using energy-harvesting textiles to deliver power to developing communities. Below are some of my favorites! Check out more over at Ecouterre!

Stella McCartney has been named the 2012 Olympic designer for Britain. Working with Adidas, she will not only outfit the athletes, but will also release four lifestyle collections "inspired by Team GB" before the games. How exciting! Congrats Stella :)

c. marchuska: We recently found out that Christine Marchuska, CEO of c. marchuska, has been asked to be the wardrobe designer for a new film called "Playground." Click here to read the interview with the director of the film, Ajay Nayyar, to see how he picked our lovely CEO!

Happy weekend everyone!
