I cannot say that I am really surprised about this but I am excited that it is finally here! But to give you more info about what this event is all about, Green Fashion Week is actually a non-profit one that’s purpose is to promote “sustainable fashion” within the fashion world. During this time designers can show their “eco-collections”
According to them “the fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries impacting the environment.” So their goal for the future is to “a path towards sustainable and responsible fashion, by promoting the adoption of sustainable development models and responsible management systems.” They hope to make the fashion industry more “economically, socially and environmentally sustainable.”
Now down to the nitty gritty, designers keep it “eco-friendly” by using raw materials like “recycled or regenerated raw materials.” They also consider the same concept when making their packaging. They even try to reduce the use of natural resources like water and electricity! This helps reduce waste, which in the long term can help the environment. All to make it “a fashion friendly environment!” Designers also play a crucial role because through venues like social media they can help lead this “Green” way of life to everyone by showing how stylish yet eco-friendly you can be!
This actually there second time around the park and they are set to start today in Los Angeles and then moves to Las Vegas! Designers that were in the program these last seasons (Milano and Dubai) and that may make a return this year are: Sohad Acouri | Kristina Burja | Caterina Da Siena | Jana Keller | Victoria Ladefoged | Elsien Gringhuis | Silvia Giovanardi | Etienne Jeanson | Francesca Liberatore | Fatima Lopes | Daniela Masias | Nelly Rose | David Tlale
