Sustainable Fashion Dominates NYFW

Sustainable Fashion Dominates NYFW

Sustainable fashion could possibly be seen as a clever experiment for the fashion world.

Making an outfit that is not only fashion forward, but eco friendly can often be a cause for concern. With most people only interested in the material and how expensive something looks, an eco-friendly garment will, at times, scare away the patron. Luckily, sustainable fashion has been a major force during New York Fashion Week. Global event and designer management company, Sechs Element decided to showcase the talents of seven up and coming designers to design a series of sustainable collections.

Sustainability has always been a focus for the company, which was founded in 2016.  Their major priority is to highlight emerging eco-friendly designers. Sechs Element has received applications from many designers around the globe including England, India, and Finland. The event took place on September 7th. The designers featured were  Alice Potts (England), Apoorva Gupta (India), Cen Si (Finland), Peiyang Zou (China), Chenhui Zhang (China), Jiaren Du  (China) and Daria Lutskevich (Belarus).  The designers, who obviously come from various walks of life, all had in common the desire to create sustainable clothing for the masses.

Many of the designers have found new and interesting ways to create their clothes all for the sake of sustainability. “Each of my pieces are exactly the same squares interlocked in different material. Each garment consists of 150-600 squares that can all be slotted together to create a whole garment, the idea being that one base of a garment can turn into a multiple of items such as jackets, dresses, trouser or handbags from the same number of squares. My customer would only need a set number of squares that can be changed into endless amounts of garments,” said designer Annie Potts from England. This type of creativity is one of the reasons why the Sechs Element sustainable fashion show will be around for a long time.
