Organic and Environmentally Friendly Clothing

To be honest I have never really thought about the organic and environmentally friendly clothing. I knew that it was available and becoming more popular but I myself had never really said oh I want to go out and buy that or I want to know more about that. When we talk about conservation and eco friendly lifestyles a lot of that is placed more on climate change, pollution, water, wildlife, and farming. Most people font think about clothing as affecting the environment. The environment today is definetly not at good as it used to be. Global warming is getting worse and worse everyday and people are starting to realize just that. It seems that this “Going Green” thing is becoming very popular. I have even seen shirts and bags in the bookstore on campus talking about it. Fibers are gathered and combed to prepare for yarn making during the actual fabric making process. Since cotton is so oily in nature it takes numerous amounts of our drinking water and energy to clean the natural oils off the cotton fibers. Although the environmentally friendly clothing may be more expensive, I think most people will be willing to pay a little more to help save the world they live in. Now that I know a little more about organic clothing I am looking forward to seeing what different types of fashion they come up with.

Favorite Designer

I like alot of the designers they have today from the big designers like Gucci, Chanel, Betsey Johnson etc to the smaller ones like forever 21 or charlotte russe. The smallers ones are probably my favorite considering how expensive the others are. But I would love to be able to just go into one of those store and just go completely crazy. I would have to say that my favorite designer has always been Dsquared2. I have always loved that their designs are young looking but they are to young if you know what I mean. They are very interesting with their taste. Its always so unique. They have bright colors and also more sophisticated colors like the browns or blacks. I first realized who Dsquared2 was one day when I was watching America's Next Top Model. The models walked in a Dsquared2 fashion show at the end and I just fell in love with their designs. They had everything from jackets to shirts, pants, shoes bathing suits you name it and it was all so beautiful and exsquisite. I love you watch their fashion show because they are always so different and interesting. It really pulls you into the clothes and what is going on around them. I love the fashioin show from Spring 2008. I attached a few pictures fromt he show they are small and maybe hard to see.
