ECSTATIC OVER ETHICS
Estethica, the leading sustainable-fashion showcase, returned to London Fashion Week this month for its ninth season. The four-year-strong exhibition has become the platform for U.K.’s best and brightest ethical designers. The Spring/Summer 2011 season brought 37 cutting-edge designers to the fore, with each one meeting at least one of Estethica’s primary criteria: fair trade, organic, or use of recycled materials.
To commemorate London Fashion Week, Estethica teamed up with the eco-friendly arm of online retailer Yoox to make its designers’ collections available internationally. (They even made a video.) You can now purchase the Autumn/Winter 2010 lines that were presented at London Fashion Week in February.
