The Wonder Women of New York City’s sustainable fashion movement gathered under one big roof this Sunday to showcase style and ethics hand-in-hand.
Eileen Fisher, alongside sustainable fashion writer Amy DuFault, rounded up a team of 8 eco-fashion trailblazers on the main stage at New York City’s Green Festival this weekend. The leaders of the industry modeled their own styled looks from the Eileen Fisher Collection, and talked one on one about their niche in the sustainable fashion industry.
The team included Jasmin Malik Chua, managing editor of Ecouterre, Amanda Coen of the Textile Arts Center, Carrie Parry designer of her eponymous label, Kristen Arnett, founder of GreenBeautyTeam.com, Jessica Marati, founder of Tout Le Monde, Emma Grady, founder of Past Fashion Future, Sass Brown, author of Eco Fashion, and Greta Eagan, founder of FashionMeGreen.com. Eileen Fisher clothing, designed with clean lines and a modern aesthetic, was the epitome of cool. To top it off, the models added flare to their outfits with Gretchen Jones jewelry and makeup by W3LL People natural makeup.
Eileen Fisher’s approach to sustainable clothing is simple—timeless and modern clothing. Made with locally sourced manufacturing, strategic global partnerships and often, sustainable materials, the clothing is at the intersection of sustainability and design.
As of April 19th, Eileen Fisher is launching the Green Eileen campaign to further their sustainability initiatives. Through Eileen Fisher’s “We’d Like Our Clothes Back Now, Thanks Very Much” campaign, stores will take back gently worn clothing, and the donator will receive a tax credit plus a $5 voucher for new purchases.
