The sun is beginning to peek through the clouds of New York City, fashion models are abound, flashing bulbs of photographers are plentiful, and design parties are the talk of the town; it is safe to say that fashion week has descended upon NYC. The fall trends have begun to emerge for 2011 and sustainable style has proven itself to be a trend that is here to stay. This weekend, the NOW'11 showcase will take the spotlight by displaying ethically produced fashion designs from emerging labels that help to redefine local and sustainable design for NYC.
As their 6th semi-annual event in New York, the NOW Showcase collaborates each season to cultivate a devoted community of buyers, editors, and eco fashion followers under one roof to celebrate and promote ethical living and sustainable design. This premier ethical trade show aims to foster community by offering a platform for eco-buyers and editors as well as a forum for participating designers to forward their designs and sustainable initiatives in a more collaborative and streamlined fashion.
Being held February 19-21 at the Terminal Building (651 West 27th St), the NOW '11 will be showcasing the designs from both new and returning designers. There will be cocktail hours from 4 – 6:30 p.m. sponsored by Gypsy Tea and Fair.Vodka. What better way to end fashion week, than with beautiful eco-design and healthy cocktails?
