Eco Fashion Week: Upcycled Kimonos

Think being eco friendly can't be fashionable? Think again!

I attended Eco Fashion Week's media preview last month month, where they showcased the stunning kimonos you'll see below. They're so beautiful and detailed, would you believe they were made from old bed linens from the Fairmont Waterfront hotel?! Seven local designers took on the challenge of dyeing and constructing a kimono from these used linens...and the results are impressive! The patterns were each incredibly unique, and I really enjoyed the individual details, from gold foil to ruffles and hand-crafted flowers.

Unfortunately, I missed the rest of Eco Fashion Week due to work, but you can check out all the coverage, from the 68 Pound Challenge to the Thrift Chic Challenge, on Eco Fashion Week's Facebook Page!
