SUSTAINABLE STYLE SUNDAY: Greening Designers & Agents

This past weekend the popular fashion trade show Designers & Agents  launched their new green initiatives at their Fall II/ Holiday show here in NYC. I was invited to exhibit my fiftyRX3 project to help raise awareness about sustainability in the fashion industry. Here’s my report…
GOOD  magazine was on hand to host a party for Josh Dorfman’s release of The Lazy Environmentalist  book, which included a Q & A with the author and Earth Pledge’s Leslie Hoffman. Dorfman’s eco-friendly virtual store, Vivavi , provided the furnishings for the lounge in the Green Room where I was stationed as part of the “consciousness raising” area. That is what you do at a trade show when you have nothing to sell. Aside from the green vendors integrated throughout the show, the Green Room showcased green candles , beauty, accessories, and clothing along with SIGG water bottles (don’t forget the contest !). Among the twenty-plus green vendors were Inhabitat favorites Sea Bags , Bahar Shahpar , Organic , Carga  and stewart+brown .
While I did make some new fashion discoveries, which will surely grace the Sustainable Style pages in the near future, the closeted artist in me also enjoyed eco-lounging beneath Aurora Robson’s calming, recycled plastic sculptures that hung from the ceiling. Also on the scene was artist David Cohen with his virtual field from The Seed Project.
