Runway the Green Way
SEPTEMBER 24TH, 2010
We can’t all rub elbows with French Vogue Carine Roitfeld at New York Fashion Week, but we can sip from a SIGG bottle co-designed by supermodel Gisele Bündchen while eco fashion takes a turn on the catwalk.
Next week marks the start of Eco Fashion Week Vancouver, and it’s anything but granola. Held inside the new, green-roofed Creekside Community Centre in the Olympic Village, event highlights include a showing of the spring ’11 collection from Canadian eco-design darling Nicole Bridger and speakers model-activist Summer Rayne Oakes and 2007 Nobel Prize winner Dr. Andrew Weaver.
It’s haute to be green.
