This is a re-enactment of the fashionethos display I set up in the NSCC courtyard on April 22 and 23. Like many important educating efforts towards healthier lifestyles and paradigms -it was a volunteer effort. The school has a Sustainability link from their home page now as well and ...Yeah!
The generous fabric samples were donated by Pacific Fabrics in Northgate. They carry some wonderful wise fabrics. The bamboos now come in knits, suitings, denim and lightweights..they feel fabulous. There is(was) a hemp voille -the other hemps were sold out at that time, more on the way. There is a wide range of colors in both fibers. The organic cotton fleeces come in 2 weights, have a yummy hand and have far less allergens than the regular fleeces which are from petroleum by-products..
