So I give you this beautiful quote from an amazing man. If you haven't seen the documentary about him, you really have to as soon as possible!
Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life.
To me, this quote helps explain why fashion is important. Fashion and clothing are two different things. Clothing is a physical t-shirt and a pair of pants, whereas fashion is a concept, an idea, an emotion, a real part of our lives. For eco-fashion to be successful, I feel that we must think about it as a more than just an organic t-shirt. It needs to be fashion movement, something that embraces sustainability yet also holds true to what fashion really is, and what it means to us.
