AuH2O Fashion Show!

I had a great time at the AuH2O Fashion Brunch this past Sunday. Held in a funky East Village eatery called Marion’s that seems to have been around forever, lucky invitees enjoyed cocktails and brunchy food and then got to check out Kate Goldwater’s designs, which are all made from recycled and reworked fabrics.

Polka dots on polka dots! I’m so into polka dots lately, so I love this dress

This flowey lingerie-inspired dress was one of my favorites; the lace detail at the shoulders is too, too pretty!

A green dress for greenies like us…

Sexy and demure at the same time (and I’m so in love with the hat…when will hats come back?)

Just look at the mix of gorgeous fabrics on this ‘bluesy’ dress…

Check out the creative patchwork skirt on this dress, which looked very comfy.

This top is made from bottoms…khakies to be exact (notice the belt!)

A mini with a maxi Coppertone insert!

A dreamy white confection

Kate Goldwater in her own design, made just the day before the show!

  1. These are such great pictures, Starre! Thanks so much for coming!

  2. Wow, those clothes look great! It’s amazing they are green.

  3. Where can we BUY this stuff? Recycled clothing, especially so creative looking, is the greatest idea.

  4. that little lingerie dress is ADORABLE…love it…love all of them!
    thanks for the great stuff!

  5. Maybe I am a snob, but these clothes, no matter how green friendly, just don’t do it for me. I wish there were more affordable green clothes out there ,that were also great designs. My big weakness are the Target new designer clothes. I just went crazy for their latest Libertine collection. Not good for my green conscience, but a source of interesting material for my green blog!
