Not so long ago a great event was held in New York: A bid to save the earth. By both a green auction and the Runway to green $ 1.4 million was raised for causes looking after the earth. Designers each made an outfit that’s sustainable and they were not the least. Rachel Roy and Michael Kors are just a few names. Want to know what happened?

video tgfc

I have an update.. I’ve found a video about the Green Fashion Competition. For those who don’t understand Dutch, here’s a quick recap.

It goes backstage with the winner, Elsien Gringhuis. She tells about how difficult it is to find sustainable fabrics. For instance: the lining unfortunately isn’t ‘green’. Furthermore one of the contestants tells how she uses silver in her designs. Silver? Yes you’ve read it correctly. The silver keeps the bacteria’s away so you don’t have to was it that often.

Just have a look at for the feeling of the designs. You’ll see a bit more of what they made and how elegant sustainable clothing can be!

my fav celebs go green

I know everybody has a fascination for celebs. I’ve admired some women for ages because of their style. And now I have some new rolemodels who definately are gorgeously green! I’ll start with Alyssa Milano. This long time veggie got the most lovely present from her hubbie for their 1 year anniversary: an organic roof top vergetable garden. From now on she’ll be eating prganic salads. “It’s our responsibility to make the changes that we need to make,” says Milano, “regardless of convenience.”  Want to keep up with celeb eco news?
