Drum roll please...The ten designers you can expect to see at Eco Fashion Week are:

The Metropolitan Pavilion, with it's high ceilings and open space, is a great venue for showcasing the ethical threads of these designers. Plus, it's a hop, skip, and a jump from M.A.C. and Milk Fashion Week at Milk Studios and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center, where editors, writers, and VIPs will be shuffling to-and-fro throughout the hectic week.
