Fashion For The Environment

Nature is always one of the main inspirations for the Spring Summer shows and this year was no exception, however the runway became similar to a demonstration as designers became the chicest of activists’.

Dame Vivienne Westwood who has long been a crusader for the environment asked the front row to write their environmental anxieties onto postcards addressed to the U.N Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, before sending bold ‘CLIMATE’ T-shirts down the runway.

Westwood’s message was echoed elsewhere as Kenzo‘s Carol Lim and Humberto Leon took up the cause of over-fishing. Cool blues and liquid like patterns marched alongside the ‘No Fishing…No Nothing’ Slogan T-shirt, of which a percentage of sales from the T-shirt will go to the Blue Marine Foundation.

More stylish nods to the environment included Christopher Kane’s anatomical flower reproductive diagrams and Raf Simon’s ‘Primrose Path’ and ‘Alice Garden’ slogans accessorised with toxic green embellishments creeping or growing their way around necks and over shoulders.

The environment looks to be the new black and designers are using their influence to encourage us all to stand up and make a difference.

    Just hope the clothes are being produced ecologically.
