With Earth Day approaching, Eco-Friendly designers are given extra consideration. Our network partner, Clothes Pin, reported on designer Camilla Norrback and her range of eco-friendly clothing. For her Spring 08 collection, Norrback rummaged through clothing patterns from the 1980's and 90's to inspire a collection which balances the playfulness of adolescence and the need for a sophisticated aesthetic. The garments are considered 'eco-luxury', and, as Clothes Pin reports, "The cultivation, processing, and colouring of the fabric has as little impact on the environment as possible using natural alternatives to toxins and chemicals". Norrback's range of sweet silk jersey and knit clothing just proves that eco-friendly clothing no longer sacrifices its aesthetic in spite of its cause.
