Eco Fashion Favorites of 2008

It’s true what they say: time flies while you’re having fun. 2008 at EcoSalon was chock full of fun, from the top of our eco fashionista heads down to the bottom of our little greenie toes.

This was a spectacular year for the art and business of green garb. Environmentally conscious fashion designers from all over the globe popped up, providing us with sustainable, eco-friendly clothing that’s anything but plain, crunchy or predictable. Our eco fashion finds covered the spectrum from chic to trendy, simple to sophisticated, quirky to girly, modern to sexy.

The proof lies in this list of what caught our eyes in 2008. (You can check out our Fashion Favorites Guide for even more eco-wardrobe excitement.)
