25 Climate-Centric Fashion Innovations

From Low Footprint Editorials to Eco-Themed Runways

— April 16, 2020 — Eco
These climate-centric fashion innovations range from low footprint editorials to eco-themed runway presentations.

When looking at eco fabric and materials, standouts include Snapper Rock's eco-centric Oceania line -- featuring family-friendly swimwear that is made from ocean plastic -- and Recap's Street Fashion Bag collection that is made from recycled tire parts, featuring a durable and waterproof shell.

While sustainable fashion has been on the rise for quite some time, independent and major brands are pushing beyond eco materials and production methods to address the industry's impact on the planet with key initiatives.

Examples to note include Vogue Italia's recent January 2020 issue that featured a low footprint by cutting out the issue's photography features. Additionally, fashion conglomerates and labels like Kering, Prada and Ralph Lauren have all shown their climate awareness with donations to fight Australia's wildfires and commitments to use renewable energy sources as part of a future-facing business model.
