New York Fashion Week hosted a bountiful array of sustainable designers, and we aim to tell you about as many as we can! But let’s start with Costello Tagliapietra, the refreshing design duo (of surprising stature, might we add) that sees the necessity of ecological change in the fashion industry, and implements it in their designs using AirDye technology.
With the textiles being one of the most toxic and wasteful industries out there, we hope to see AirDye, which uses 90% less water and 85% less energy than typical dyeing methods, become the norm. As Robert Tagliapietra puts it in an interview with Ecouterre, it’s simply a “no-brainer”.
And just look at the results! The duo’s Spring/Summer 2012 line is full of bright and bold color with patterns and florals to match, with just a hint of Eastern influence and luxurious fabrics. If everything went AirDye, we wouldn’t complain!
