On a High After Vancouver Fashion Week

PINCH…PINCH…PINCH…that’s just me pinching myself because UK Vogue has featured the entire latest Green Embassy Collection in its latest edition!

After a whirlwind trip to Canada for the incredibly exciting Vancouver Fashion Week, I’m still swooning from the rave reviews I’ve been getting from the international press fashionista world. Along with UK Vogue, Green Embassy has also gotten coverage in UK Glamour Magazine and loads of other juicy places.

“Awe-inspiring” and “breathtaking” are just some of the kind words used to describe the 16 garments I chose from my EARTH series. Check out all the press highlights on the Green Embassy FB page or click here.

I’m so happy and proud that handmade certified organic fashion design is starting to get the recognition it deserves .

As Vancouver blog StyleDrama so beautifully describes it: “Wearable art fashions were first introduced on the Paris and Milan runways for spring summer 2014 by Chanel, Dior and Prada, so we now include Green Embassy Australia’s first internationally recognized organically certified fashion label on the cutting edge of this new style trend.”

Despite all this thrilling news, I know that Green Embassy still has a long way to go, especially in the Australian consumer market. Sadly, it’s still lagging behind Canada, Europe and the US in terms of sustainability consciousness.

As for me, there’s no rest for the wicked – but I’m not complaining. Coming up for later this year are fashion events in New York, Beijing, New Zealand and Paris, so it’s busy, busy, busy, but absolutely loving it!
