Gallery: Designers and Agents Fashion Show Hits NYC TOMORROW!

 

HEY FASHION-FORWARD NEW YORKERS!

We're excited to announce that we (and our sister eco-fashion design site Ecouterre.com) will once again be reporting live this year from premiere fashion trade show Designers & Agents in NYC! You'll find us situated in the 'Green Room' where all the best and brightest up-and-coming sustainable designers will be on display from tomorrow all through Wednesday. If you're in the area (we'll be at the Starrett Lehigh Building in Chelsea), come by and check out the collections, meet the designers and chat green fashion with us! Read on for highlights from last year's show or click here to get a sneak peek at the crop of new talent we're expecting to see bloom in the Green Room this year.

Here are some of our favorites from last year’s Green Room!

TURK + TAYLOR

We were immediately drawn to this easy to wear combo by Turk + Taylor: a sleek, recycled polyester bias cut tank in silver with a wool, hemp, and lyocell blend pleated school girl skirt in black.

AYNI

Our editor-in-Chief Jill fell in love with Anardo & Skyum’s sophisticated and elegant sweater dresses, which are made from sustainable alpaca wool by the Andean women of Peru.

PO-ZU

These natural latex and coconut husk ballet flats by PO-ZU were extra plush – editor Olivia Chen tried them on and didn’t want to take them off!

HOUSE-WEAR

Senior Editor Yuka models a clever trompe l’oeil shift dresses by House-Wear, made out of recyclable Tyvek — these awesome designs really caught our attention with their 2-D appeal.

INHABITAT

And of course we have to give a shoutout to our very own supersoft organic cotton Inhabiwear, modeled here by Editor-in-Training(pants) Petey.

More information on times and venues are available at the D&A website.
