Gallery: London Fashion Week’s Estethica Spring/Summer 09 Showcase

 

< New York Fashion Week has come and gone, and devout fashionistas have since migrated onto London for the next wave of Spring/Summer 2009 showings.

    Just love Orsola’s ‘From Somewhere’ label, now if only they ‘d start recycling pieces for men!

    I also definitely agree with Orsola when she says ethical fashion is now increasingly mainstream, not only has the showcase grown from 15 to 37 designers but part of the esethica showcase this year saw the govt launch its Sustainable Clothing Action Plan which involved the likes of M&S, Sainsbury and Oxfam. Now with govt support, it will be a fantastic couple of years ahead for ethical fashion!
