LA’s Fashion Week is upon us and while it is small, it comes with lots of fun and great fashion. I sponsored the Green Youth Movement's Green Initiative Fashion Show because it’s an organization that educates youth about living green and eco-friendly behavior.
The Green Initiative fashion show proves that fashion and sustainability do go hand-in-hand…hmmm, where did I hear that before??? ;)
The Pre-Show Haps

I had the pleasure of meeting the drop dead gorgeous Carolina Davalos, Univision radio host, Telemundo Fashion Reporter and Lifestyle Correspondent. She recently launched the Latin Fashion Network and in her “free time” she’s also a fashion editor for Diva Tú! Magazine.
This international fashion queen bonded with me over our love for shoes as she modeled her Givenchy over the knee boots. She made me a lifetime fan when she told me about how she’s been working at so many different projects and is ready for one of them to just take her to the next level. I heard that! Love her!
Haute Green Fashion
First up to show was Kristinit with some gorgeous separates perfect for the office. This beautiful collection had my most favorite dress of the day. It was black with gold printing and very easy to wear. It also had a TON of pieces that I would love to have in my wardrobe.
Emily Factor’s collection was last and it featured this very whimsical, boho chic print that she worked in every way possible. Flowy butterfly dresses, tank tops, endlessly flowing skirts and even leggings! I loved the high wasted wide leg pants with the printed tank and the butterfly dresses the most. What totally blew me away was her finale dress. It was the most modern wedding dress I have seen yet, that I would actually consider wearing. It may not be necessarily be intended to be a wedding dress but is SO gorgeous, I instantly pictured it at a beachy wedding or even better, at a outdoor in the woody nature kind of wedding… SO West Coast. ;) Ms. Factor really outdid herself with that white dress. I die!
All the designs utilize sustainable materials and are socially responsibly produced. *swoon* Utterly FAAAAAHBULOUS! I love that in response to global warming issues, we have this eco-chic “haute” couture. ;)
