Well, it definitely is where Sylvia Heisel is involved.
Mark my word for it, 2012 is going to be THE year for sustainable clothing. As high street stores battle to see who can come up with the greenest campaigns, designers are quickly following suit, creating ever-quirkier clothing lines that are more resourceful than ever before.
For me, the prize for the most-resourceful competition has to go to this lovely lady. Of Turkish heritage and raised in East Africa and New Jersey, Heisel’s designs capture this fusion of cultures and blend them together in Monet-esque perfection. And not only are the designs beautiful, but they are also completely organic and eco-friendly. Take her grass print fabric for example – made using polyester from recycled soda bottles, it is (quite literally) as green as you get.
Guaranteed these pieces will make you green with envy too…(I know, I know, I took it too far).
