Thanks to Bess for passing us GSpotters this interesting article from Portfolio Magazine which takes a more skeptical look at major fashion companies "going green." One of the ideas from the article is that disposable fashion and trend purchasing habits leads to excess and is a self-defeating cycle. We GSpotters made that point with an entry a few weeks back regarding French Women as prototypes for Sustainable Style. Widely acclaimed French style hinges on investing in timeless pieces, mixing them with vintage, and wearing clothes in multiple ways. As opposed to debuting a new outfit often, only to have it fall apart due to poor quality of production and materials.
These are just a few thoughts pre-fashion week, here in NYC.
