New York Green Fashion Week: Classic and Timeless Clothing at John Patrick Organic, Spring 2011 (Slideshow)

New York Fashion Week has officially begun in New York City. I started off a hectic week slowly at John Patrick Organic, winner of the Ecco Domani 2010 Sustainable Design Award, where the designer showed his spring 2011 collection -- 18 classic looks: made with sustainable fabrics, in neutral tones, accented with floral prints and woven details -- at the Ace Hotel in Midtown Manhattan.

For the seasoned designer (he has been in the business for thirty years), fashion is all about modernity; it's about designing with good form, functionality, and detail, and by his own proclamation, it is a "political statement" on environmental issues. The show's production in itself was a low impact affair, compared to a runway show. More on this, and photos from the entire John Patrick Organic spring 2011 collection (view his fall 2010 collection, too) in our slideshow, below.
