Products made within tight parameters tend to show more creativity. Take food carts, for example. Compress the production space and the results are original and irresistibly tasty.
The same can be said for the fashion industry. Vancouver’s pioneering Eco Fashion Week, which kicks off April 21 in Vancouver’s downtown Robson Square, is another stellar example. Ask designers to use sustainable practices in product development, and you get wearable, chic fashion made in really comfy fabrics. We’re not talking about hippie hemp. If you want hemp or granola, Eco Fashion Week founder Myriam Laroche advises you to head to the snack bar.
Eco Fashion Week is in its sixth season this year and has tons of free and ticketed events. Expect glamourous runway shows featuring green designers (local and international), fashion industry panels, and free seminars running through April 24. This year, Eco Fashion week overlaps with Earth Day on April 22; attending the stylish Robson Square events is a great opportunity to get out and celebrate our green city.
With all the good-looking fun, it can be hard to choose what to attend. Find Eco Fashion Week 6th Edition schedule highlights after the jump. Continue reading:
