For those of you have not heard of Summer Rayne Oakes (Where have you been), she is model turned eco-activist. She runs an environmental consultation firm called SRO. She has developed an eco-fashion curriculum that she teaches to young children. Oakes is a correspondent on Discovery Network’s Planet Green, author of bestselling style guide Style, Naturally (Chronicle, 2009), and Editor-at-Large of ABOVE Magazine.
And if that wasn't enough to keep her busy, she has now launched Source4Style, a one stop shop for designers to source eco-materials. Sourcing fabrics for many designers takes just as long (if not longer) to complete. Source4Style puts designers in touch with suppliers and makes this process easier.
I have no doubt that this will make things a load easier for eco-designers out there, as well as those designers who have struggled to get eco fabrics in the past.
