Gallery: 37 Eco-Fashion Predictions fo...


As we move into the '90s revival, grunge will be back, and upcycling will fit that look perfectly.

I predict modern upcycling will actually look "upcycled," but with a much edgier feel.

I believe that in the high-end sector there will be a rush to re embrace artisans and manual skills, and that crafts will become a tool for modern luxury once again.

I also see transparency becoming more important as consumers become aware and more curious about who makes their clothes.

Watch out for Fashion Revolution Day on the April 24 and wear your clothes #insideout to show your support.
