Eco Fashion Week made its first appearance in Seattle and I was SO excited to be a part of the inaugural year. I was one of the Collective Conversation speakers at the 2016 spring Eco Fashion Week in Vancouver and was over-the-top inspired by both the shows that I attended and the Collective Conversation panels.
Here are some photos of me and some fabulous people from the media wall this year...
This year was even more inspiring as last year. I posted a few photos below, you'll see I made a couple small purchases...bow ties from Radley Raven that specializes in creating gentlemen's accessories, handmade in Seattle from rare vintage fabrics.
Below are photos from the Eco Fashion Week Staff of the Collective Conversation panels, perhaps the most important part of the week.
