Despite her rise to fame as one-to-watch on the London fashion circuit, Ada Zanditon is not one to sit on her laurels. The eco-designer continues to plumb the depths of sustainable-fabric sourcing by incorporating fair-trade organic denim, locally woven Shetland wool, AZO-free-dyed silks, and digitally printed organic-cotton sateen and Tencel jersey. Always the ethical and eco-conscious craftsperson, Zanditon also included pre- and post-consumer recycled fabrics and yarns to bring her designs to life.
“Ecolocation,” Zanditon’s highly anticipated Autumn/Winter 2010 collection, marks her second season collaborating with jewelry designer Luca Romanyi of Lullatic. To match Zanditon’s geometric and skintight forms, Romanyi crafted outrageously sculptural pieces made from recycled eco-resin.
In support of the flying mammals that inspired her collection, Zanditon will be contributing 10 percent of profits from a line of organic cotton/bamboo T-shirts to the Bat Conservation Trust.
