VANCOUVER ECO FASHION WEEK Feb. 22-25!

The 2nd annual Eco Fashion Week in Vancouver starts February 22 and is sure to be just as incredible as last years! Planet Claire favourites Dahlia Drive, Red Jade, Peridot Kiss, Kim Cathers, Nicole Bridger, and Lav & Kush will be showcasing, as well as a host of other local and international labels.  We’re very excited about this new event to be held twice a year, so come on down and support our local eco designers, and get the first look at their Fall/Winter 2011 collections!

Come out to support the amazing talent we have here locally wearing your own ethical fashion piece! Planet Claire will be having an Eco Fashion Week sale; from today until the 25th, receive 25% off all new spring stock and an extra 10% off sale items!

ECO FASHION WEEK IS:

A selection of the best eco-designers from around the world comes together to showcase their latest collections of environmentally friendly, trend-setting fashion. With collaboration from designers, buyers, models, agencies, fashion directors, trend setters and media, the message is global.

Like other fashion weeks around the world, EFW will be held biannually. In contrast to other fashion weeks, EFW will focus solely on environmentally friendly designers and practices. There is a growing shift in the fashion industry to include the wellbeing of the environment into its practices and Vancouver has become widely known as a haven for independent designers who are committed to using recycled, organically grown, and locally produced fashion. A direct effect of EFW will be to stimulate the growth of eco-conscious fashion and accelerate the industry’s renaissance into the environmental age.
