Sublet Clothing Spring Preview in New York Fashion WeekMarch 21st, 2009 - Posted in Fashion Design
It’s officially New York Fashion Week here in New York City, and despite the glum economic outlook, there are some definite bright spots shimmering on the streets of the recession-battered Big Apple. Inhabitat is joining the brigade for ‘runway optimism’ by highlighting NYC-based eco fashion talent and innovative designers. We are genuinely inspired by the sustainable style efforts of several fashion houses slated for stardom in 2009. We view fashion week as an opportunity to further examine clothing and the vital role it plays in our lives, not only as an expression of individuality, but as a shelter that sustains us. What better opportunity to support designers who create socially and environmentally responsible garments, than by doing your consumer homework during fashion week hype. With this in mind, we are kicking off our fashion week coverage with a sneak preview of Sublet Clothing’s playful and smart, eco-chic Spring 2009 collection.
