Gallery: 30 Eco-Fashion Predictions for 2013


There's been talk lately of first- and second-wave eco-fashion movers and shakers (many I'm sure are also giving predictions here), and what many of us are realizing is that there's only so much talking we can still do. There's only so much dilution of our efforts and racing to be everything, everywhere, and to everyone.

There really needs to be more action and focused collaboration this year in sustainable-fashion circles with a clear direction to put forth our efforts effectively. We are a powerful group capable of very powerful moves in more than just eco/ethical fashion circles.

So I think this will be the year we make those bold moves outside our comfort zones to include bigger movers and shakers who not only will see the necessity to make changes both environmentally and ethically but that truly need us eco-fashion pioneers who have been working the front lines to guide and inspire them.

    I think that one of the main ethical questions should be over the lack of choice in skincare/make up brands unless one chooses to shoponline at places like Naturisimo or LoveLula where only non animal tested products are sold? In Department stores and Boots many brands especially the ‘high end’ designer ones still use the cruel and unreliable draize and force feeding methods rather than the more reliable alternatives, even ingredients linked to skin irritation and cancer are still used. This is less likely in BUAV approved non animal tested products as natural alternatives, higher quality are often preferred?
