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.
Eco-Chick managing editor Lindsay Brown, founder and editor Starre Vartan (in Feral Childe bookends dress) and intern Juliette Donatelli (in Feral Childe rake dress), who worked to put this event together!
Stories tell the best pictures, so follow along for what was a superfun evening sponsored by Neutrogena Naturals, Green Spaces NY, Veev, Treeline Nutcheese, and our beautiful models styled by Starre Vartan, with hair by Theadora Guzman at Yarok Hair and Kristen Arnett of the Green Beauty Team.
VeeV’s new organic VitaFrute cocktails-in-a-bottle were delicious and refreshing. Very green, very spring-y.

Our goody bags were filled with soaps from Mrs. Meyers, delicious perfumes from Lurk, toothpaste from PROXI, skincare from Neutrogena Naturals, adorable socks from PACT, Yarok haircare products, info from Eileen Fisher, and gift cards from Tres Belle Petite Medi-Spa in Brooklyn and sustainable clothing company Sundippers.
