Eco Fashion Inspired by NASA Pictures


“I think it is important for artists and creative people to emphacize global awareness regarding our responsibility to preserve the earth we are about to detroy.
~Lelia Hafzi

Premiering on the cover of Eco Fasion World’s new magazine is Lelia Hafzi a designer who primarily shows in Norway, and produces in Iran and Nepal. Lelia’s ultimate goal is creating a company atmosphere called “cultures in fusion” and an entirely environmentally sound production cycle. Her gowns and costumes are stunning, eye catching center stage pieces.

For the latest collections she has been quoted saying “I was inspired by NASA pictures of black holes and distant galaxies, and it made me think of our own fragile ozone layer” ~EFW

Lelia’s designs shown above, have also been well received at the the Ethical Fashion Shows in Paris. Her creativity soars with a grounded view of the global need for ethical textile and apparel production, Lelia reaches to the sky blooming with all sorts of ethereal and dreamy creations.

    Sounds wonderful! (but please don’t assume it is a given that we are about to destroy the planet)

    True, her words are moving, and I’ve learned to question my assumptions given that “sustainability” is problematic in the context of an environment that is already depleted. As Paul Hawken noted, sustainability is simply the midpoint between destruction and restoration. ~bioneers.org/about

    I also agree with Lelia that it is important for artists and creative people to emphacize global awareness regarding our responsibility to preserve and restore the earth.
