Eco-fashion makes its mark at New York Fashion Week
Sep '12
Going green is the latest buzzword in every realm of fashion industry these days. Sustainable fashion, also known as eco-fashion, is a growing trend that aims to create apparels and accessories, supporting the ethics of environmentalism.
Accordingly, eco-friendly lines are making a prominent appearance on the runways, with the most recent being the high-profile sartorial event New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013 that concluded earlier this month.
The bi-annual fashion week showcased a range of eco-friendly apparel collections created by Nina Skarra, Kimberly Ovitz and Oskar Metsavaht. 
The Scandinavian fashion designer Nina Skarra presented 100 percent biodegradable and eco-friendly clothes made of natural fibers like wool, bamboo, silk, eco-leather, soya and organic cotton at the Fashion Week.
Clothing designer Kimberly Ovitz’s eco-friendly line featured garments made of completely natural, man-made and sustainable tencel fabrics.
Brazilian eco-friendly brand ‘Osklen’ by designer Oskar Metsavaht also showcased creations made of ecological materials like fish leather and vegetable dyed waste silk at the prestigious event. 
According to the eco-fashion philosophy, a product is created only after fully considering the environmental and social impacts it might have throughout its life span, including ‘carbon footprints’.
