You’ve watched the eco fashion world evolve from plain Berkenstocks and hemp tees to edgy designs and daring looks from the likes of Mountains of the Moon and Kelly B Couture.  Yesterday’s granola girl is today’s high fashion bohemian and the fun doesn’t end on the casual runway.  Conscious couture has made its way into the wedding arena and today’s eco friendly wedding gowns are far from frumpy.  The modern green bride not only has her pick of some of the most trendy styles around, she also has eco custom design servies and versatle dress options at her fingertips.

Take a look at some of the amazing developments in eco bridal fashion.

Harper incorporates natural and organic fabrics into her wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses, but one of the more intriguing services she offers is a refashioning of old, vintage wear.  Your grandmother’s wedding dress is a treasure trove of fabric that Seams can remake into the most modern, eco-chic design…so don’t overlook this as a cost-saving and waste-reducing option for your wedding day.  Seams is also a great resource for non-traditional colored wedding gowns and versatile bridesmaid dresses, like the the wrap dress shown above that fits a multitude of sizes in ONE single design.  No more stressing about gaining or losing weight for your special ladies with this dress!  All Seams couture wedding gowns are crafted in the Seams workshop in the New England area and are never outsourced.

Adele Weschler

Adele’s designs are quite versatile, both in style and construction.  From removeable skirts to budget-friendly options in her new spring collection, Eco Couture IIII, Adele is making it both easy and economical for brides to go green with their wedding gown.  Adele incorporates certified organic hemp/silk blends, vegetable dyed silks and remnant lace and fabrics.  Her gowns are made in Canada and any portions that are outsourced are done so under Fair Trade labor standards.

 

 

Chris Kole – The Cotton Bride

   

Fabrics are all-natural, including some organic, and are selected for their ability to breathe and how comfortable they are.  All of the gowns are sewn entirely in their studio in New York.  If you are planning a destination or outdoor wedding, this is the designer for you!  Not only is The Cotton Bride Collection fit for a nature-loving bride, it is also filled with versatile options, such as removeable skirts.

Justin Alexander – Pure

 

The Pure Collection was created with destination weddings in mind, but seamlessly translates to traditional and outdoor weddings as well.  Each dress is crafted with organic fabrics and natural accents.

Chrissy Wai Ching

   

Fairly traded fabrics including organic silks, peace silk, hempsilk and hemp.  Chrissy, ecletic designer and passionate ecoist, crafts her custom gowns 100% in her Seattle studio…there is no outsourcing of labor.  Call her studio to schedule either an in-person or phone appointment to design your perfect custom gown.  Keep in mind, all of her gowns are hand-dyed…which means she can mix your exact shade of color just for you!  (206) 229-1111
