I sit here writing this blog post on a train headed to NYC. It is February 13th. Normally I would be on my way home from a week filled with NYFW coverage. Unfortunately, college calls. This was just not a season I could make it.
On a brighter note, I will be spending the weekend here with family and friends enjoying my long weekend off from school. And even greater news….is the amount of conscious fashion shown at NYFW this season. NYFW is an event I used to do coverage for starting when I was sixteen years old. Once my blog switched over to Below The Seam and I started writing about conscious fashion, doing press coverage for NYFW didn’t really seem to fit in with my image anymore.
But season after season I have noticed the increase in eco-friendly, sustainable, organic, and ethical apparel collections that have started to be shown on the runways. It just goes to show how conscious fashion is continuously developing as a bigger and bigger movement within the industry.
It brings me great happiness knowing that the more designers that begin to show at NYFW, the more conscious fashion will continue to grow and become an ordinary concept. One day, I would like to be able to return to NYFW without the purpose of networking, but because there are enough conscious collections that I will be able to do press coverage for.
I will be featuring some of my favorite conscious collections from NYFW over the next few weeks.
Stay tuned and enjoy your weekend everyone. xo- Hannah
