Now in its seventh year, the Esthetica Showcase [2] at the Spring 2013 London Fashion Week [3] once again brought groundbreaking eco-fashion by green designers from around the world to the British Capital’s catwalks. The fashion exhibit was launched to provide a platform highlighting designers who work at the cutting-edge of sustainable, ecologically-responsible practices, and this season’s show certainly lived up to Esthetica’s goals. Organized in conjunction with the British Fashion Council [4] and curated by Orsola de Castro [5] and Filippo Ricci (founders of green label From Somewhere), Esthetica showcased the collections of 15 designers who variously explore the use of locally-sourced, upcycled and recycled materials, create ethically sourced jewelery and work within fair trade practices.
