Embracing an "ecocredo" of sustainability, ethics, and local production, London-based Elena Garcia constructs her exquisite and dramatic multifunctional pieces by hand from organic silk, linen, and wool, along with low-impact dyes.

For Fall/Winter 2009, Garcia draws inspiration from Queen Victoria and socialite Daphne Guinness, conjuring up obsidian Nuno-felted silk gowns, asymmetric vests and tunics in cutwork chiffon, and knit jackets with detachable batwing sleeves.
