The world knows by now, that going green isn’t a trend and it’s definitely not going away anytime soon. Fifty plus years ago, it was the pipe dream of hippies and environmentalists everywhere that major corporations, industries and citizens would begin to adapt a green lifestyle. Albeit some are controversial (not everyone loves bike lanes) but there is a clear green movement in many facets of our lives – one area being in fashion.
Eco Fashion Week brings together the best eco-designers from around the world to showcase their latest collections of environmentally friendly, trend-setting fashions. Gone are the times when eco-friendly clothing equates to Birkenstocks and khakis. Local gem Nicole Bridger is an eco-designer making it big, showing in New York during fashion week and being recognized on an international level for her talents. She shows tonight (8:30 pm) at Creekside Community Recreation Centre – an eco-friendly, LEED-certified venue if I may add. Buy tickets here for tonight’s show ($20) or for the closing party featuring K-OS.
