A photo of her O~Wool cocktail dress will be in the December issue of Vogue magazine.

"We are excited that more designers than ever before are using O~Wool in their collections," said Matthew Mole, president of Vermont Organic Fiber Company, noting that "the use of O~Wool by all these top designers shows that fashion and environmental sustainability easily go hand-in-hand." Mole will be presenting October 20-22, 2009, at the Organic Exchange Sustainable Textiles conference in Seattle, WA.
