For those of you who think that eco-fashion equals hemp sandals and lots of beige hippy dresses – think again, fashion folks. Inhabitat has been preaching the good green design gospel for years now, trying to spread the word that green fashion can be daring, hip, and sexy as well as sustainably responsible. Our recent reports from the New York fashion event Project Earth Day demonstrate, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that sustainable style is not only sexy but pushing the boundaries of just how much things are heating up on the green stage.

Eco Undies! by T-LuxeFrilly Red Eco-Undies by T-Luxe

Among several of the eye-catching and innovative women’s eco fashion lines parading down the runway at Project Earth Day, we were especially taken with a few new eco lingerie lines that have popped up recently – namely T-Luxe and Loup Charmant’s PURE Collection. T-Luxe eco lingerie features luxurious sustainable fabrics such as bamboo and organic silks which are colored through a low-impact, natural dye process. All of the energy used to produce T-Luxe designs is also off-set through carbon off-set programs. That’s hot!

Loup Charmant‘s heirloom inspired organic cotton ‘eco-lounge’ collection is not only PURE and feminine but pure in ingredients, too. Handmade in Brooklyn, NY, we love that PURE’s designer, Kee Edwards, is not holding back when it comes to finding fresh new ways to make sustainable style go skin deep. We look forward to seeing the entire PURE Collection at the upcoming D&A (Designers & Agents) show here in NYC this weekend. The eco-fashion wave keeps rolling on, and Inhabitat will be at D&A to report on the continual greening of women’s fashion.

And not to be missed from last week’s Project Earth Day sweet and sexy line up, one of our favorite designers, Bahar Shahpar, and her sassy ‘Red Zig Zag Plunge Cocktail Dress’ (see image below). Flirty, colorful, and fun – eco lingerie is here to stay and is only getting greener and more playful with each passing season!
