NYC Conscious Fashion Shows - Fall 2017

NYC Conscious Fashion Shows - Fall 2017

It's the start of New York Fashion Week (NYFW).  I imagine designers scrambling to perfect their looks and fashionistas hoping to get inspired by the latest trends.  My sister and I tasked ourselves to find sustainable fashion designers at NYFW.

This proved to be difficult.

We've read a few dozen designer bios on the NYFW website and it was hard to determine which ones were dedicated to sustainable fashion. Perhaps sustainability is not on the forefront of these designer's minds or perhaps the writers fail to mention commitments to this cause thinking that it's unimportant.  Either way, it was pretty disappointing. 

After some internet searching, we found two upcoming conscious fashion events.  Fortunately for us, both are on the same day!
