Gallery: Ecouterre Shares the Hottest Eco Fashion Shows from New York F...

Talk about youth in revolt! Libertine's glitzy FW 2012 collection found inspiration in the growing trend of global activism seen in the Occupy movement, the Arab Spring uprisings, and the Tottenham riots and translated it as a whirlwind of rhinestones and glam rock energy.

Suzanne Rae was “faux real” about calling attention to cruelty-free alternatives in her introspective Fall Winter 2012 collection. We were enamored by her use of natural fabrics draped and styled to mimic real fur, and her use of mustard, burgundy and forest green velvets added an air of luxury to the looks.

Lauren Moffatt decided to take New York Fashion Week to school this season, showing her FW 2012 line at classrooms in St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral School. Moffat produces her line entirely in New York’s Garment District told Ecouterre that she wanted the collection, which is filled with playful Peter Pan collars and coy, color-blocked coats to have the “undone feel of the schoolgirl with just a touch of mischievousness.”

Ecouterre went behind the scenes with The GreenShows’ stylist Julie Ragolia as her team prepared for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center. Check out the whole frenzied setup in our video (as well as the cute pup who was helping)!
