Gary Harvey's New York Green Fashion Week debut was absolutely jaw dropping. The designer's ability to create marvellous gowns with reclaimed fabrics is amazing. The reclaimed fabrics such as wedding dresses, jean jackets, laundry bags, army jackets and scarves maintained their look and purpose, while being a part of larger dress and fashion statement. Almost like quilt, this patchwork of reused fabric dresses were nothing short of beautiful when draped on the models.

Implications - Eco-friendly products are becoming a crucial aspect of a consumer's shopping experience. Since such a wide variety of commodities are now available in environmentally friendly options, shoppers have become more aware of their purchases and how the products they buy will affect the environment.
