Showing at New York Fashion Week is every aspiring fashion designer’s dream, and having your line on display during this prestigious event is a sign that you’ve really made it. Well, in a way, eco-fashion as a whole is very much like a promising, young designer – a select few know about it, but it’s really just starting to make a name for itself and get noticed. That’s why we’re ecstatic to report the birth of The GreenShows, a two-day lineup of amazing designers which allowed the sustainable fashion movement to have a dedicated stage during New York Fashion Week this year for the very first time in history. Watch out world – sustainable fashion has arrived!

Check out our favorite runway looks from this truly momentous occasion including Lara Miller’s dramatic and architectural stylings, Bahar Shahpar’s proud and triumphant warrior princess wear, element-inspired frocks from Bodkin, groovy garb from Izzy Lane, the mathematical “squares” concept behind Study by Tara St. James, Mr. Larkin’s revolutionary mint and copper-dyed wearable vestments, and the defiant, true to self garments of House of Organic as well as two in-depth videos with all of the designers, garments, makeup and behind the scenes soundbytes for your viewing pleasure.
