A few weeks ago, I attended an event (hosted by EFactor and AlleyNYC) highlighting green and eco-savvy fashion here in New York. The panelists—Tara St. James of Study NY, Alden Wicker of Clean Hippie, Allison Parris, Natalie Frigo, Yoli Ouiya of Yoli’s Green Living and Enovia Bedford of Accessory Remix—discussed their personal ventures into conscious design with moderator Kerri Quigley of The Fashion Class.
I've written about green fashion before, and I'm very interested in
innovative ways designers are making a difference. A few highlights:
"If you can [be ethical], why wouldn't you?" -Allison Parris
After the panel, I was excited to wear pieces by Study NY, Sprout Watches and Nina Z
in a mini fashion show with some other lovely bloggers. It was so fun
to sport these beautiful designs (including a phenomenal cape) along
side other NYC bloggers. I was honored to be asked!
Ashley and Melissa were also models for the event, but unfortunately I ended up without a group photo!
