Eileen Fisher Creates Wearable Spring Sustainability

In a land of infinite fashion and many valiant attempts to infuse sustainable style into the world, not many have succeeded in creating a cohesive transition. For those of us who want to be eco-conscious and still maintain comfort and cuteness, Eileen Fisher has created an all around line that fulfills from creation to community.

I had an opportunity to join the the EF creative team for their Eco Preview and learned a lot more about their holistic approach to this collection. Sustainability leader Shonah took me through the selection of fabrics from organic cotton, tinsel, recycled fabrics, hemp, and silk. By working closely with Bluesign and their standards, the production of the line considers all inputs, processes and technologies at their source. Every step of production is analyzed and seeks to maintain the utmost quality and minimize use of resources and impact on the environment.
By partnering with the likes of the American Sustainable Business Council and Businesses for Innovative Climate and Energy Policy, Eileen Fisher also seeks to implement change through advocating for green policies.

I love the detail on this sweater. From the distinct cuts to the sleeves. It’s sheer sexy.
