Each season, fashion insiders head to New York City for the unveiling of new runway collections. From magazine editors to street style stars, digital influencers to celebrities, fashion icons have their eyes on the designer masterpieces that strut down the runway to reveal next season’s trends.
But attendees are increasingly looking beyond the trends and exploring styles with staying power. Among these hot topics is sustainable fashion. As the concept continues to garner interest, designers are placing more importance on fabrics that minimize environmental impact to create styles with recycled or environmentally friendly materials.
With the fashion community abuzz with eco-conscious style, we’re asking this season: what if being fashion-obsessed led to being sustainability-minded?
One industry pioneer leading the charge in the conversation around sustainable style is global textile solutions provider Unifi. Operating at the cutting edge of fashion and sustainability, Unifi developed a high-quality recycled fiber called REPREVE®. The fiber is made of 100% recycled materials, including plastic bottles that has turned yesterday’s waste into today’s latest styles.
