Yves Saint Laurent once said “Fashions fade, style is eternal,” poignantly highlighting how fast, capricious and lavish the world of fashion is. From season to season, accessories to jackets, what people wear is a huge business across the globe and yet, so little attention is paid to how it actually affects the globe.
That’s why Sandman Hotels is proud to sponsor a strong group of rapidly expanding eco-minded style icons who know the difference between fashion that cuts down rain forests and fashion that is ecologically cutting edge. Founded by Myriam Laroche, Vancouver Eco-Fashion Week focuses on highlighting the world’s style leaders who source their textiles from environmentally and humanely responsible sources in addition to vintage and used clothing retailers who ensure that perfectly usable garments don’t end up in landfills.
The event will feature informative ‘smart talks’ on topics ranging from consumer behaviour and awareness to industry trends and recycling. It will also showcase the best of the eco-fashion runway with exciting fashions shows and parties.
Now in its 5th year running, the event has done a lot to ensure that the 3rd most environmentally damaging industry is on its way to a better place, and we couldn’t be more proud to support their cause –because, as Canadians, we know what it’s like to have a passion for your environment and the people who make it great.
