Earth Day Sustainable Fashion

In anticipation for Earth Day, which is tomorrow, I thought I would share with you the best on offer in sustaniable fashion. To me sustaniable fashion is considered fashion, where the production, materials, planet and people are all considered. So we have a planet for generations to come.
More and more designers are now designing with sustaniable fashion as a core value, instead of an after though or excuse for bad design. Some of the best designers, Stella McCartney, Chinti and Parker, Pachacuit, Edun and John Hardy are making some of the best pieces on the catwalk in terms of style, which are also sustanible and “Green”.

Another, and more affordable way, to buy sustaniable fashion is to buy vintage.

The main message behind sustainable fashion is that fast fashion or dissposable fashion is not just bad for the environment, planet and for generations to come, its also expensive. Its not made to last, producers of fast fashion aren’t concerned with the quality of their products, they want you to have to come back and spend more money buying either the same or different top, dress etc because the other one has started to fall apart. In the long run sustainable fashion is also cost effective.
