Chloé puts an eco-friendly twist on Paris Fashion Week

Chloé put a twist on Paris Fashion Week this year by showing off a bunch of their eco-friendly pieces. Many of their bright colored dresses were crocheted/knitted by hand and many accessories were created by using leftover fabric. These sustainable pieces will be sold in stores–but there are only a few in stock. Larger quantities are in the works, but for now, they are limited. Chloé also took some steps to eliminate greenhouse gases and water usage by switching fabrics from cotton to linen. Gabriela Hearst, the creative director of Chloé, believes that by making this change, she could influence other luxury brands to switch over and be more sustainable. The show took place on the banks of the Seine, with the Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral in the background, making a picture-perfect show. This was Gabriela Hearst’s first runway show with an audience since taking over the position of Creative Director.
