DC Fashion Week is considered one of the fastest growing international fashion week exhibits in the world. It's held twice a year in February and September, and typically reaches an audience of more than 10 million people. Today, DC Fashion Week will collaborate with Inova Health System's Office of Sustainability to showcase the work of eco-friendly fashion designers and help support environmental sustainability in the fashion industry. It's a great initiative that highlights the fashion world's impact on the environment & public health and encourages people to see, learn and take action.
An example of the eco-friendly designs is blue wrap (pictured above), a recyclable material woven from the plastic polypropylene and used in hospitals to cover sterilized surgical instruments — head here to learn more about it. The whole week will showcase fashion designers using organic cottons & dyes, as well asrecycled and reused materials. The featured designers will be Das Man, Nigeria's Estella Couture and the Kourtney Jaeson Collection.
