I ran around NYC looking for an event that would satisfy my sustainable craving and it was an epic fail. That is until I reached Sustainable Fashion Night Out hosted by Textile Arts Center in Manhattan, EcoSalon, Of Rags, and the NYC Fair Trade Coalition.

Sustainable designers sold their wares, while I overindulged in Gone Pie‘s vegan apple bars and a glass of wine. Designers included: Arcadia, Global Goods Partners, Tompkins Point Apparel, Digs, Of Rags, A.D.O Organics, Afia, Feral Childe, Wool and the Gang, Erin Considine, Shabd, and Kaelyn Garcia. An array of dresses, accessories, shoes and more were displayed. There were also interactive displays that chart the flow of clothing in the global marketplace

While I appreciate the aesthetics, treats, and thankfully discovered the Textile Arts Center, a more diverse palette of attendees and designers is definitely welcomed for future events.
