Ecochic Vintage Fair & Fashion Show by Mini Prix

Hi ! Yesterday I attended a vintage fair and a fashion show held by Mini Prix with the following theme : Ecochic ( Sustainable Fashion ). I wasn't exactly sure what this concept really meant when I first got the invitation and I am sure there are some of you who are wondering what's this all about, so, let me share with you some information about sustainable fashion that I've got from Wikipedia.

Sustainable fashion, also called eco fashion, is a part of the growing design philosophy and trend of sustainability, the goal of which is to create a system which can be supported indefinitely in terms of environmentalism and social responsibility. Sustainable fashion is part of the larger trend of sustainable design where a product is created and produced with consideration to the environmental and social impact it may have throughout its total life span, including its "carbon footprint". According to the May 2007 Vogue appears not to be a short-term trend but one could last multiple seasons.While environmentalism used manifest itself in the fashion world through a donation of percentage of sales of a product to a charitable cause, fashion designers are now re-introducing eco-conscious methods at the source through the use of environmentally friendly materials and socially responsible methods of production. 

I always say: When in doubt, use google ! 

I was really impressed with the clothes on the catwalk, the designers did a really good job considering that they only had some old fabrics and ragged clothes available. They've completely reinvented those items and turn them into chic, unique clothing.
I was also impressed with the location of the event, a restaurant called Maxim that had a big, gorgeous terrace and flowers inside birdcages. The event was filled with tasty treats and all visitors received gift bags. 

Overall it was a fantastic event, very well organized and I've had a great time catching up with so many of my Romanian blogger friends, Anaivilo, Silvia and Raluca, Ioana, Diana, Teodora, Stella. You can see for yourselves in the following pictures.
