It’s next to impossible to capture the movement, intensity, and sheer exuberance of a fashion show with static photographs (though we have plenty of those, too, if they’re your bag). To cut you into a piece of the action, we’ve distilled the essence of The GreenShows at New York Fashion Week into one jam-packed video, from the stiletto-strutting clotheshorses on the catwalk to the flurry of models and designers backstage. Bonus: You’ll hear from the maestros themselves as they explain the inspiration and concepts behind their perfectly orchestrated Spring/Summer 2011 eco-fashion collections.
