Fashion Puts Its Best Foot Forward

Garyharvey_econouveau_2Green has been ruling the runway recently, with sustainable styles on display from Los Angeles to Paris. Over the weekend, London-based designer Gary Harvey showed off his creative recycled couture (like the dress pictured at right) at the EcoNouveau kickoff for L.A. Fashion Week, while Parisians celebrated the now-annual Ethical Fashion Show. Even Seattle shed its less-than-chic image to put on its first Green Fashion Week earlier this month, with hot designers and some stunning styles (although that seemingly picnic-tablecloth-inspired dress about halfway down the page is a step backward, as far as I'm concerned). Fashionistas, let us know what you think: Whose green designs are hot and whose are not?
