Chicago’s Fashion Focus Week is currently underway, and considering the amazing student talent in Chicago these days, it is not surprising to discover that fresh green shoots of sustainable style are increasingly visible on the streets and sidewalks of the windy city. This year’s fashion week line up will feature the first ever Museum of Sustainable Style (MoSS) exhibit, curated by Pivot Boutique, Chicago’s own eco fashion, go-to-source for green glam style. With a fabulous line up of movers and shakers on the local and international design scene, MoSS promises to be a great new resource for greening fashion weeks and trans-seasonal collections everywhere.

Jessa Brinkmeyer, the owner of Pivot Boutique, is the principal curator of MoSS, and as Chicago’s first eco fashion boutique offering the collections of more than 40 local and international designers. Pivot is the city’s definite front runner when it comes to promoting the beauty and value of sustainable design. Jessa is as passionate about bringing the best of Chicago eco fashion to the world as she is about bringing the world to see the state-of-the-art textiles and latest green fabrics used by her featured designers.
