The Ashton Michael Black Collection [1] proves that spring eco fashion isn’t strictly about colorful fabrics and demure cuts. A goth-inspired line channeling a hint of Morrissey and Ministry, designer Ashton Hirota debuted his eco-friendly collection at The GreenShows [2] during New York Fashion Week [3] on Monday. Working with the Seattle-based Rethink Fabrics [4], Hirota incorporated recycled bamboo, cotton, PET [5], and coconut [6] into a series of dramatic and provocative silhouettes, that prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that eco fashion is anything but boring.
