According to WWD and InStyle online, Runway to Green is putting together the first Eco-Friendly fashion show of the year.  On March 29, 2011 top designers will be donating looks from their Fall 2011 runways.  Here is a portion of the press release from Runway to Green:

“RTG announces major fashion brands as part of the program; confirmed participating designer brands include Gucci, Prada, Balenciaga, Burberry, Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg, Manolo Blahnik, Oscar de la Renta, Stella McCartney, Jason Wu, Alexander Wang, Tory Burch, Derek Lam, Marchesa, Marni, Michael Kors, Rachel Roy, Rag & Bone, Thakoon, Osklen, Pringle of Scotland, Timex 80, Tommy Hilfiger.  NET-A-PORTER is the exclusive online retailer for the launch.”

As you can see, the creme-de-la-creme of designers have signed on.  Another giant step for the Green community.  Onward and upward my eco-friendly friends…baby steps are steps, and we are definitely stepping in the right direction!


Mr. Robert Duffy, friend, partner, and President of the Marc Jacobs brand, has let it leaked that there will be a new cafe opening up in New York City.  Whats might be even more surprising is that it’s not the first of its kind.  Marc Jacobs has a cafe in his Milano store that opened earlier this year.  The Milano cafe opened during Milan Fashion week, so one can only assume the opening of the NYC cafe might happen during New York Fashion Week.  Fashion or die will keep you up to date as the opening gets closer.  And a special thanks to my fellow blogger, Ahungryartist who brought this news to my attention!  It’s good to have friends!!!

One of our favorite bridge line is on the cusp of tween-ness! Marc by Marc Jacobs will be 10 next year.  How exciting!! Marc Jacobs will be presenting a special show highlighting the best of the best from the last decade of fashion.  I will definitely be on the edge of my seat waiting for this collection to hit the airwaves.  For a fun retrospective of Marc’s last 10 years go to  Enjoy my fab readers!
