The Vert Couture green show during Chicago Fashion Week was the place to be for eco-minded fashionistas this past weekend. Frei Designs' Annie Novotny showed her spring 2010 collection--along with Mountains of the Moon, Vaute Couture, and Bryant McLemore Smith--at the show. Click through for Annie's vision of spring 2010--loose fitting dresses, skirts, and tones of gray--and her organic creations on the runway.

According to their website, Frei Designs supports fair and healthy labor practices, and environmental sustainability. The collection is made with 80% organic fabrics--with no agrochemicals used in the process--and are dyed with low-impact or no-impact dyes. Garments are sewn in Chicago by workers paid a fair wage, and are shipped using recycled materials.:: Frei Designs
