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!

I’ve been biting my nails ’till I heard the news: the winner and runner-up of The Green Fashion Competition are Elsien Gringhuis and OAT. Love the flowy jumpsuit, really a musthave (and perfectly styled!). You can see the designs at the Nukuhiva store starting tomorrow.

Renowned fashion journalist and judge of the competition, Georgette Koning: “Elsien Gringhuis is modern and contemporary, she has great technical skills and paints a very feminine and beautiful picture. She has managed to create a signature style in a very short period of time”
