NaModa and Rust Belt and Bahar Shahpar

We love fashion. And we love it more when it’s sustainable – such a bonus! We’ve produced eco-fashion runway shows, product launches, and events hoping to help spread the word that there are stylish options out there for clothing that you can buy without looking like a potato sack. This week we are prepping for greening over the Vogue Espana eco-fashion shoot / Alter Eco TV show’s eco-fashion episode, and since my mind is particularly on this topic, I thought I’d share some of our fav designers with you today.

So – above are pictures from NaMoDA out of Toronto, I just got the white dress you see in the girl standing above, but in black and it’s sooo super cute on. Plus, Monika Sosinski – the designer – threw in this very cool scarf that is made of two pieces joined at both ends but can be separated to create multiple layers, which made me go — “ooooh, fun fun fun!!” NaMoDA is: Confident Style, Free Thought and Elegant Artistry.

Next up is Rust Belt. I met Paige Neal at a d+a show in LA earlier this year and just loved the jewelry that she’s making with her partner Anna Bario. There are a lot of cool things going on with these ladies – the two of them introduce themselves as first and foremost artists, who happen to make jewelry, that happens to be eco-friendly. So rad. In fact their alluvial collection is inspired by hand-drawn maps documenting the 1944 Geological Investigation of the Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley. I have a vintage blue enameled track chain with a very beautiful clasp (seen above) and it feels amazing on, and is very young but still edgy and feminine. Totally great.

And last, but never ever least, is Bahar the rockstar Shahpar, who I actually handpicked for a big runway show Pink Cloud produced last October in downtown LA. She has sent me a package of goodies from Brooklyn of her F/W 08 line – and I think some stuff from The Four Hundred showroom, too- which I will see tomorrow and am really looking forward to it. Bahar has the kind of style that makes you want to smile, jump up on top of something, and tell somebody to fuck off if they don’t think being eco is sexy.
