"Organic" Breathes Fresh Air into NYC Fashion Week

Jeez, do I have to do everything around here? Ahhhhh.

Imagine a fashion event with models who smile, clothes that are as stylish as they are eco/socially responsible, and George W. Bush. Okay, the George Bush part was just to get your attention, but there was a Bush Family member and the models were smiling in their fantastic Organic by John Patrick couture. This past Wednesday, September 5th just 30 feet from the main tent in Bryant Park was one of the most cutting edge fashion events of the week....More from ecorazzi

Looking ahead:

Yesterday, the Danish label NOIR held its first show during New York Fashion Week. The socially and environmentally conscious label was a welcomed addition to the slowly growing, yet still miniscule contingent of designers showing eco-friendly options here. NOIR worked with model Shalom Harlow for their spring campaign (above). The model is well known for her support of eco-friendly fashion.

Bindi in WWD:
Bindi Irwin may be best known for following in her late "Crocodile Hunter" father Steve Irwin's footsteps as an environmental conservationist, but as it turns out, the eight-year-old is also a budding fashion entrepreneur.

Irwin, who has been busy this summer doing crocodile research with her mom, Terri, in her home country of Australia, is preparing for her first trip to the MAGIC trade show in Las Vegas at the end of the month. There, she plans to introduce her children's clothing line, Bindi Wear International. Her plan, with the help of her mom, is not only to launch an apparel collection, but to use it to infuse interest in wildlife conservation. The real reason for the launch is to raise money for the cause, as 100 percent of the proceeds from sales of the line will go directly to support the Australia Zoo's conservation programs.

This is the last one:

Bindi Irwin is star guest in fashion

The nine-year-old paraded down the runway in front of a crowd of about 500 fashion buyers to publicly announce the Bindi International spring/summer 2008 line.

Okay, I can't do this. I don't care if you fire me, no more eco-fashionista. NO.
