Barneys New York is doing it, Yves St. Laurent is doing it - just like Urban Outfitters or The Green Vixen. Call it re-styled, up-cycled or refashioned clothing: all these hot fashion designers turn pre-loved clothing into one-of-a-kind eco-fashion outfits.
The advantages are clear: It is the ultimate in eco-friendly as it re-uses materials and creates no production waste. And then - it's truly unique: no other celeb is going to sport the same dress. Ever.
Implications - The Green Vixen will keep you on the cutting edge of the eco-movement styles, whether it be refashioned, upcycled or anything in between. You will certainly find all kinds of unique pieces either for you or the eco-minded friend in your life.
