New York and Uganda based ethical accessories brand Nakate is hosting a trunk show and ethical fashion networking event tonight in Manhattan’s East Village.
Four must have eco-friendly party supplies to make your spring parties more sustainable, and sustainability a little more fun.
This Spring, Redress Raleigh hosted their first ever Eco-Fashion & Textiles Conference. The purpose and goal of the event was to bring industry leaders together to talk about where the fashion and textile industry is currently and where its headed in the coming years. Mor Aframian, Director of Branding and Community Relations, gave FGS an inside perspective on the conference, and what they discovered in terms of upcoming trends and sustainable practices.
Sapellé’s April pop-up shop is targeting a global clientele with a range of fair pay, ethical and fair trade African-inspired fashion.
When it comes to ethical shopping, buying handmade and vintage are some of the best ways to know that your purchases were produced under safe, clean conditions. It’s really a win all around, right? You get something beautiful and unique, and instead of throwing your money at a big corporation, your dollars go directly to the artist who created the item you’re purchasing.
Sustainability strategist and branding consultant Shannon Whitehead and ethical fashion stylist Lucy Harvey weigh in on what we can expect from sustainable fashion in 2013.
There is perhaps no one as influential in the current sustainable fashion movement than Orsola de Castro, creative director at From Somewhere and Reclaim to Wear, and the co founder and co curator of Estethica, a showcase promoting sustainable fashion at The Exhibition at London Fashion Week.
I was able to catch up with Castro this past week in regards to her plans for From Somewhere’s expansion this year, what we can expect from Estethica in 2013 and who she projects will be the sustainable brands and trends to watch in the coming year.
Taking place ONLINE on the 30th and 31st January 2013, the SOURCE Brand Preview will break new ground as a platform for connecting sustainable brands and designers with buyers and press.

The fashion industry is a multibillion dollar business. Americans alone purchase over 20 billion garments a year. How can our consumer awareness of dwindling resources and increased consumption shift our purchasing power to sustainable solutions?
You would think that being a Green Diva would mean that I celebrated Earth Day every day. I don’t know whether I celebrate daily, but I do try. The truth is when you’ve been living this lifestyle for as long as I have, this annual Earth Day frenzy can get a little silly.
The only thing better than sustainable development and eco fashion? Eco fashion designers working to support sustainable development. Thanks to Clairvoyant Marketing Agency, Origin Africa and In the Bag – this is exactly the kind of designer that this year’s Hub of Africa Fashion Week is highlighting on the Ethiopian runway.
Unique LA held a smaller, more focused event this weekend to help last-minute Valentine’s shoppers find that perfect gift for their special loved one. There were plenty of regular vendors, as well as some new ones. As always, it was very well curated, with a top-notch selection of Los Angeles-made clothing, jewelry, gifts and food.
Listen, laugh & learn with the Green Divas (and Green Dude Scott) anytime – Podcast here! You are going to hear us talking a lot this year about “gettin’ local wherever you are.” It’s kind of our 2012 theme. We’ve always believed strongly in supporting our local communities, but we’ve also always had a very national and […]
Timmery Turner says her 1981 jewelry line makes three statements: “I’m here. I’m fun. I’m bold.”
More than that, her pieces are made from items that aren’t usually recycled. Turner makes many of her pieces from toys, and other found objects.
Bologna, Italy is host to Linea Pelle, one of the world’s largest leather industry fairs. But the city recently hosted very different kind of fashion event. In order to expose the leather industry’s connection to deforestation in the Amazon, Greenpeace staged a Bologna fashion show with Italian top models that educated attendees on the crisis in the Amazon, and featured a backdrop with the text “Salvati la pelle,” or “Save your skin/leather.”
Way too much to cover in one hour during this Earth Day celebration week! Of course, we like to think that every day is Earth Day, but thanks to the mainstream commercialization of this emerging holiday, it has become quite a media bonanza!
Choosing the right charity can be difficult! Some are outright scams, others torture animals and promote homophobic agendas. How can you help victims or hurricanes and earthquakes without causing more suffering?
