Dinosaurs…Taking Fashion back to its Roots

Move over T-Rex – we need to make room for some of the hottest eco-friendly fashion designers around. You’re a meat eater, so I suggest you find a spot in the back and let everyone else gobbled up the greenery.

Friday night’s Be EcoChic show jump started Fashion Week with a burst of green and a blast from the past. Held at The Museum of Natural History, this event was developed to raise eco-friendly awareness and promote the use of eco-sensitive fabrics and recycled materials. On this night, cavemen in fur pellets were pushed aside to make room for the industries' top eco-friendly labels such as Edun, Linda Loudermilk, Azzedine Alaia (vintage), Vena Cava, and Carmen Marc Valvo. Spectators watched as a slew of models and celebrities, including Lauren Hutton, Dominique Swain and Alek Wek to name a few, sashayed down the runway wearing this year’s sexiest eco-styles. What’s great is that all materials used were either recycled or made with organic materials.

At the end of the show, celebrities and VIP’s gathered for the Be EcoChic after party in the specially designed eco-lifestyle lounge created by Project GreenHouse. This show was all about sexiness and sustainability. It's only going to get bigger and better as the Green movement continues to grow.
Mmmm I love fashion...
