Eco Runway encourages Recycling

Eco Runway encourages Recycling


The Maintain and Sustain Runway presented at New Zealand Eco Fashion Exposed was a more relaxed casual affair with the results of the skilasthriftshopchallenge presented by Nora Swann and the
#ecovintagechallenge presented by Denise Anglesey Director of Exposed and Designer of Denise H. Both challenges were implemented earlier in the year via face book and the results were revealed on the runway at Exposed. Both challenges were followed by a number of international bloggers and magazines.

EarthLink Apparel presented a new concept in recycling with a brand new children's wear range up cycled from corporate apparel waste. The four looks consisting of dresses, tights, leg warmers, jeans and shirts will be available shortly via online shopping after the brands official launch.

Stylist Nora Swann of Kila's Style demonstrated that clothing found in thrift stores can be a fashion lovers answer to having a stylish wardrobe. Nora presented twenty looks with items of clothing found in thrift stores in Lower Hutt and Auckland and showed the audience that there really is no end to the different looks that can be achieved with a wardrobe that is small, stream lined and tailored to suit individual fashion preference. Kila's Style presented with Eco Vegan Shoe Brand Piccadilly.

Following along similar lines, Denise Anglesey presented over thirty different up cycled looks made from clothing that was either dated or considered waste during the #ecovintagechallenge.

With an estimated 90,000,000 pieces of perfectly good clothing going into the land fill every year internationally, this segment is aimed to educate the public that more often than not, clothing and manufacturing waste can be rescued and turned into other garments. The advantage of this is that each individual piece then becomes a one of a kind garment and is therefore more likely to remain in the wardrobe for a longer period of time thus making them more sustainable.

The #ecovintagechallenge is Denise's personal design solution to help manage waste and it a concept she is passionate to share with students, other designers, manufacturers and thrift stores. Manufacturers are encouraged to make contact if New Zealand Eco Fashion Exposed can assist with the redistribution of unwanted textiles to eco designers.

Werewolf: Music Criticism As A Dating Metaphor

Music criticism can be just another form of consumer advic... Yet ever since pop music criticism first entered the media mainstream it has played a wider role, too. Rather than a decree with a numerical score attached, this kind of criticism functions more like travel notes. A conversation, even a form of seduction. More>>
