Gallery: 30 Eco-Fashion Predictions for 2013


In 2013, we'll embrace a new definition of luxury and in doing so turn away from the mainstream, celebrating our own personal style. As global fashion brands, such as Levi’s and Zara now shift course away from toxic manufacturing processes under the influence of Greenpeace’s "Detox" campaign, others will follow suit. In the meantime, consumers are expressing an interest in more artisanal brands. Pieces that have a story, made by companies invested in more than being on trend, but doing business with a positive social impact.

Quality will trump quantity as consumers transition away from the instantaneous gratification of fast fashion and flash sales, in search of timeless and unique pieces that define their own personal style, and in doing so contribute to making a difference in the world. After all, what is more stylish than that?

Emerging brands to watch in 2013: Nudie Jeans, Andrea Gutierrez Jewelry, Calleen Cordero, GoodForAll, GUNAS, Black Dakini, Dalia McPhee, and Rachael Cassar.

    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?
