The Ashton Michael Black Collection proves that spring eco fashion isn’t strictly about colorful fabrics and demure cuts. A goth-inspired line channeling a hint of Morrissey and Ministry, designer Ashton Hirota debuted his eco-friendly collection at The GreenShows during New York Fashion Week on Monday. Working with the Seattle-based Rethink Fabrics, Hirota incorporated recycled bamboo, cotton, PET, and coconut into a series of dramatic and provocative silhouettes, that prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that eco fashion is anything but boring.
