Leanne Marshall's Collection for Bluefly Debuts Tomorrow
Last week, we received word that Project Runway Season 5 Winner Leanne Marshall's mini collection for Bluefly will be available on their site starting tomorrow, July 8th. Here, we've been following Marshall and her LeAnimal line of "Fashionably Responsible" apparel for several years, even before launching Fashion Ethic in 2007 and really appreciate her rise in the industry as she continues to promote ethical fashion.
Marshall's collection will include seven styles: 2 tops, a skirt, jacket, and 3 different dresses in crisp blues, pinks, and purples. From the looks of it, expect more of the dramatic textile manipulation and soft architectural shapes that we have come to adore from this pioneering eco-fashion designer. Prices are said to range from $98-990, and eco-friendly materials and dyes have been used in most of the garments (the blue dress is unfortunately not bamboo or tencel. No word yet on the labor used.
CHECK OUT Leanne Marshall's eco-friendly Bluefly collection when the page goes live July 8.
Can't wait for tomorrow? SHOP Leanne Marshall's Etsy site for the "Mae" dress or fellow Portland-eco-fashion-designer Emily Katz' line at Fashion Ethic.
