With Earth Day on April 22, we celebrate cutting-edge fashion designers, many of them veterans, who have spun innovative approaches into eco-kind clothing alternatives. Weaving earth-friendly fabrics into sleek silhouettes, they show us that we needn’t sacrifice style to be eco-conscious. We’ve stepped inside the studios of some of these designers to peek at what they’ve got springing up this season as well as into a local vintage boutique, where recycled garments and accessories are always en vogue.
