Bottoms Dresses FASHION Outerwear Tops

Not just for the crunchy-granola hippie types anymore

The eco-fashion industry has really taken off in the last few years and its not just for the crunchy-granola-vegan-hippy types anymore. There are actually cute designer wear for the fashion forward trend-setting set. I was introduced to this world when I attended Eco-Fashion week in the middle of fashion week. I attended Bahar Shahpar’s show that was packed to the nines and celebrity guest Russell Simmons was sitting diagonally from me on the other side of the catwalk.

I can write and talk about how awesome the clothes at Bahar Shahpar’s show was or I can show you my favorites.

I don’t know about you but I LOVE that last dress. The start of the show was pretty ordinary until these stunners showed up towards the end. Uh-mazing! Who knew that sustainable eco-friendly clothes could be so fashion forward? Love it! In the words of Rachel Zoe “I die.”
