The Spring 2010 collections have marked a turning point for green fashion. Designers consistently came down the runways with graceful, wearable, and decidedly thoughtful collections. As consumer demand for ethical clothing grows and upscale textiles become easier source, ethical and designers are able to produce ever more elegant collections. That confluence of talent and available textiles has allowed the green design scene to grow by leaps and bounds this year.
