One standout was designer Bethany Williams, who presented a collection made entirely from recycled materials, including plastic bottles and car tires. Williams also partnered with a women's charity to employ individuals who have experienced homelessness or addiction.
Another notable designer, Stella McCartney, debuted a collection made with organic cotton, recycled polyester, and innovative materials such as vegan leather. McCartney has been a long-time advocate for sustainability in the fashion industry and her collection was met with praise and enthusiasm.
It's clear that sustainability is becoming an increasingly important factor in the fashion industry and consumers are taking notice. Expect to see more eco-friendly options hitting stores in the near future.
