August 18, 2009  //  Posted by: Crystal  //  Category: Uncategorized


We all are aware of the global warming and pollution levels which are rising by the day. All of us know that we need to make our contributions towards stopping this.

The first step concerning this in the fashion industry was taken by a Brazilian eco brand Eden when they opened their first ever eco fashion store. It is located in Sao Paolo’s trendiest neighbourhood, Vila Madalena.

Interiors of the Store:

The lavish interiors of the fashion store are crafted from scrap-wood and the clothes are displayed beautifully on bamboo hangers.

The Eden company label is 100% organic inspired by the elements of nature. The whole clothing collection is made up of natural cotton fibre, coloured with organic dyes obtained from plants. The clothing material and dye colours are completely chemical free.

Online eco-friendly stores:

The Green Loop is an online fashion store whose main mission is “an alignment of style and sustainability, a fusion of aesthetics and ethics.”

They have an amazing collection for both women and men clothing from all the major green fashion labels such as Loomstate, Eden, Stewart and Brown and Nui Organics.

The Fabrics are made with certified organic cotton and eco-friendly dyes. The price is also affordable for everyone.

The best thing is now those people who love fashion and respect there ecology is to open up for the option which spells green.

They can also shop for these clothes online if these eco-friendly stores are not easily accessible to them. I would like to request people to preserve their environment and go for eco-friendly products. The future of our world is dependent on it.

Beyonce - Marie Claire - June 2009

Beyonce - Marie Claire - June 2009

Cute dress. Slightly odd expression.

I remember a time almost ten years ago when Marie Claire was my favorite magazine. The stories were interesting, the celebrity pieces weren”t quite so fluffy, the models and “real women” used on its pages were diverse* and it actually had a point of view that seemed larger than “buy this stuff it will make you happy.” Nowadays I only subscribe to the magazine because it only cost me $5 for two years. On average, it takes about five minutes to flip through it before it gets dumped into the recycle bin.

That said, this issue wasn”t a complete bust. I found a few books in the “Radar” section that are now on my wishlist: Monica Ali”s “In the Kitchen” and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie”s “The Thing Around Your Neck.” It also reminded me to Tivo Jada Pinkett-Smith”s new TNT drama HawthoRNe. Lastly, I entered a contest for a chance to win “Beyonce”s Luxe HoD Wardrobe,” which I know will make a showstopper at my son”s next preschool mixer.

*I have to add that last month”s issue contained two great spreads featuring models Alyssah Ali and Atong Arjok.
