London Fashion Week this year held its first ever Sustainable runway show, showcasing looks by top designers which places emphasis on sustainable and ecologically friendly manufacture and design practices. The show is a result of a partnership between British Fashion Council’s initiative Esthetica and START, a project of The Prince’s Charities Foundation, with a commitment to promote, celebrate and advance sustainable living.
The show, held in St. James Palace on Friday the 17th, was the culmination of a festival by START, “A Garden Party to Make a Difference”, in which the public were invited to come learn about greening one’s lifestyle. The festival, dedicated to raising awareness of sustainability, ran September 8th – 19th, and was held in the gardens of Clarence, Marlborough and Lancaster Houses in London.
Top designers who contributed designs to the Sustainable collection included, but not limited to: Dame Vivienne Westwood’s World’s End Collection, Stella McCartney, From Somewhere, People Tree, Junky Styling, Henrietta Ludgate and Christopher Raeburn.
