Linda Loudermilk and the Reinvention of Sustainable High Fashion
Linda Loudermilk is the queen of high style Eco-fashion. She has been setting trends in the fashion world using fabrics made of sasawashi, bamboo, sea cell, soya and other exotic self-sustaining plants. Her powerful designs with strong lines and fluid forms, seem to shout "this is not your ordinary sentimental hemp line."
The clothes are perfectly polished and confident and as her site says are "clothes that pack an iconoclastic punch, from noirish suits to sculpturally sexy shift dresses to jeans cut deadly on the hip." Voted by W Magazine as one of styles most influential people of the year, she has shown the fashion design world the endless possibility of sustainable chic.
The Spring 08' collection adds mud-dyed linen, vegan silk and milk cashmere to her stable of fabrics and takes on a theme of "wind turbines." The theme is manifested through unexpected seams, fluid lines, and missing collars. At Los Angeles Fashion week where the collection debuted, Loudermilk's show was attended by the likes of music sensation Prince and Pink. Loudermilk has paved the way for high fashion in Eco Fashion and continues to create inspiring collections that draw buyers from in and outside the green camp.
