Linda Loudermilk is an environmentally friendly fashion designer, who deserves way more credit than she's getting. I know what you're thinking: eco-fashion = scratchy burlap dresses, and plain-Jane (or just plain ugly) designs. Think again. Linda creates beautiful clothes out of sustainable fabrics, bringing a whole new meaning to the beauty of nature. But not only do they look good, they've acquired the all important seal of wear-ability approval.
I'm totally in love with her designs, and soon hopefully the rest of the fashion-loving world will be too.
Now, I'm sure luxury eco (Loudermilk Inc. has coined this term) isn't for everyone, but I just thought I'd give you a taste of where the future of organic fashion is heading...
Don't ask me how she does it, because I have no idea. All I know is we all need to do our bit to save our diminishing natural environment. Linda Loudermilk (among many, many other talented green fashion designers, kudos to them all) is doing hers, so let's support her, no?
Check here for stores/stockists, and general information about the brand.
Well, it turns out, (one researcher) estimated it would cost us $35 trillion a year to do what nature is doing for us for nothing. Now to put that into perspective.
If you had added up all of the annual economies of all the countries in the world at that time, it would come to $418 trillion . So, nature is doing twice as much service for us the economies of the world. And in the madness of conventional economies, this is not in the equation."
Powerful stuff, eh?
Speaking of Vanity Fair, how's everyone feeling about Madonna as the cover-girl of this year's Green Issue? I noticed that many, many blogs I've stumbled upon recently have been featuring this cover, so I figured I'd get in on the action. You know, just to be cool. Lol.
The issue isn't actually on sale yet, so right now everyone is still guessing what Madonna has to do with the environment crisis, but knowing Vanity Fair, I'm sure it's something admirable. And if not, well she still looks downright fierce on the cover. In the end, isn't that all that matters? Lol.
