Eco-Chick’s Sustainable Spring Fashion Party: Photos, Beauty, Love

ECPModelsLineup

It was all about local, local, local at the first ever Eco-Chick Sustainable Spring Fashion Party at Green Spaces in Tribeca. We had a great time celebrating Earth Day a little early with local vegan food, organic libations, and a fun-loving and curious crowd who were there to see what eco fashions from seriously styling made-in-NYC designers, all of which are available in stores and online.
