The 7th Edition of Eco Fashion Week in Vancouver was once again an amazing display of the diversity in the fashion and garment industry. This comes from the wide range of materials, textiles and techniques, but also because I find the designers are less concerned about being on trend. This season’s event held true to themes from the past, but the maturity of the production in its seventh time through, translated into a smooth and fun event.

HoseWear makes bags and accessories out of decommissioned fire hoses. The material would otherwise find its end being dumped to landfill or burnt (ironic, huh?). Each fire hose has a life saving story to tell and so do their bags and belts. In their short history they have saved over 30 miles of fire hoses and sold their products to over 30 countries worldwide.

We’ve all heard lots of things about the benefits of choosing organic, whether it’s the food we eat, the skincare products we use or even the clothes we wear, but eyeglasses? For most of us, this isn’t something we think of when we hear the word organic; because, let’s be honest, we all wear those plastic frames that are well, not very environmentally friendly. But with this innovative designer, I’m pretty sure you’ll be amazed by what she uses for her line of organic frames.

The rain tried to put a damper on this edition of London Fashion Week. Try walking around in high heels on cobbles (the Somerset House courtyard), and being decked out in all your finery under an umbrella, which is either broken or totally uncoordinated. Despite the mild distractions provided by the weather, there was an abundance of beauty and creativity ready to divert attention and offer delight.

Swapping and Schwapping
Written by Jessica McIlroy - Tuesday, 17 September 2013

While vintage shopping holds a certain mystique for many (and thanks to various thrift stores for making it cool again), many people still find it hard to make the move to buying second-hand clothes. Not quite gone are the old, negative connotations of smelly, out of style clothes that only those less fortunate would buy. One way we can tackle the pace of fast fashion and encourage more people to wear second-hand is to encourage more swapping. Perhaps it is the idea that we are exchanging clothes with others like us, or in many cases people we know, but for many, swapping somehow sounds better.
