Green Style isn’t Black & White
In many ways, fashion is the antithesis of sustainability. It’s about what’s next, driven by that oft-uttered cliche: “out with the old, in with the new.” Perhaps this is why the phrase “eco-chic” seems like such an oxymoron: How can an industry that thrives on constantly discarding what’s “stale” be at all green?
This is the question at the heart of Sandy Black’s Eco-Chic, The Fashion Paradox, an insightful tome dedicated to unraveling the complicated threads of what eco fashion is all about. The book is as attractive as it is informational, filled with vivid photographs of one breathtaking piece after the next and case studies of designers including ecofabulous favorite Linda Loudermilk.
Heidi Klum may often utter that “in fashion, one day you’re in and the next you’re out,” but Black proves that when it comes to green-centric style, things aren’t so black and white.
