Go Green: Stella McCartney Debuts Eco-Friendly Capsule Collection

Recycling, carrying groceries in cute totes, and biking around town are all chic ways to lend Mother Nature a hand. But this week, eco-conscious designer Stella McCartney took going green to a new level, showing an entire capsule collection of sustainable dresses at London Fashion Week.

Dubbed the “Green Carpet Collection,” the line mixes abstract water-based ink prints with seventies-inspired wood-heeled shoes. And the clothes weren’t the only green designs at the launch – her presentation at the Royal Institution of Great Britain used reclaimed film props, including shrubbery from the set of Les Misérables.

If this is the direction eco-friendly fashion is headed, then I’ll definitely tip my hat to Stella, known for her company-wide commitment to sustainable materials, as its very chic pioneer.
