Eco Fashion’s all new season gives us more eco styles that’ll have you wanting to go green.
Want to go eco? Fashion One – the leading New York-based international fashion, entertainment and lifestyle network – has got you covered with all the top eco brands from around the world.
Revolutionising the fashion industry by creating eco conscious products, one brand at a time. From making stylish bags out of recycled plastic, to using surplus cloth to create awesome streetwear, going green never looked so good.
Fashion One is coming back with an all-star group of eco designers taking steps to change what it means to wear clothes. From People Tree in London to Sealand Gear in Cape Town, eco designs are making an impact on the fashion world in a positive way.
Conscientious about the impact the fashion industry has on the earth, these brands and designers are making it their mission to make sustainability chic and necessary.
This is what you can look forward to in the fourth season of Eco Fashion, premiering on Monday 5 September at 20:00 on Fashion One.
