Showing at New York Fashion Week [1] 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 [2] 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 [3], a two-day lineup of amazing designers which allowed the sustainable fashion movement [2] 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 [4], Bahar Shahpar’s proud and triumphant warrior princess wear [5], element-inspired frocks [6] from Bodkin, groovy garb [7] from Izzy Lane, the mathematical “squares” concept [8] behind Study by Tara St. James, Mr. Larkin’s revolutionary mint and copper-dyed wearable vestments [9], and the defiant, true to self garments [10] of House of Organic as well as two in-depth videos [3] with all of the designers, garments, makeup and behind the scenes soundbytes for your viewing pleasure.
