NYCFTC FAIR RUNWAY @ Wix Lounge
NYCFTC ‘s second fashion show was a celebration of Fair Trade in NYC. Thanks Kate Black of Magnifeco for hosting the show, Wix Lounge for providing the space, and all of our Fair Trade brands, fashion bloggers, fellow designers, friends, family, supporters, clients, and inquisitive guests.
“As Fashion Week winds down in New York City for the AW13 collections, last night was time again for the second installation of the collaboration between the NYC Fair Trade Coalition (NYCFTC) and Magnifeco.com and their Fair Fashion Runway. Started during New York Fashion Week 2012, the Fair Fashion Runway was created as a new platform to promote eco-fashion and Fair Trade in a collective, innovative show.
With all the glamour and style we expect of NYFW, but none of the pretension or posturing the night was about celebrating all that is beautiful when fashion is ‘fair’. The fair referring to: fairly sourced (cruelty-free, most items from artisans), fairly paid (no slave-labour), and fair to the planet (made with natural dyes and fibres that won’t harm the earth).”
