c marchuska eco fashion week (9)

At last night’s c. marchuska F/W 2010 fashion show, designers Christine Marchuska and Brooke Bresnan proved once again that producing chic, sustainable and affordable clothing never means having to sacrifice style.

The eco-conscious duo’s F/W 2010 collection was revealed as part of The Green Shows where 14 eco-fabulous looks made it down the runway- an expansion to earlier collections.  New additions to the c. marchuska line include: shorts, leggings, pj pants, vests and jackets.  F/W 2010 also introduced updated versions of the “Kiva” tee and “Sylvia” dress.

Additions to the c. marchuska collection also meant layers of textures; pairing together a mix of sporty and sophisticated looks for the woman who not only thinks green but also wants to wear green from head to toe.

Bring on the dresses!  F/W 2010 includes the addition of “Anna,” “Daphne,” “Erin,” “Bridget,” “Kiva Alexandra” and “Tiffany” dresses.  Pair them with the very popular “Hunter” scarf (available in a variety of colors).

Fans of c. marchuska know that behind ever garment is the face (and name) of a woman who has made a positive impact on the designers.  Sallie Kuratko was certainly pleased, as a model wearing the “Sallie” silk shorts opened the show.  Yes, even the “Leslie” dress made its debut at the c. marchuska “Vivons Vert Eco-Fashion Show” in 2009…

The collection paired with jewelry from Cynthia Rybakoff, Sarah Westervelt and Brittany McNicholas; NeuAura Shoes and Ozone Socks.

DJ Chopps mixed beats as guests enjoyed drinks provided by Cold River Vodka, Sambazon and Vita Coco.

Hair and Make-up was provided by KMS California and Dexter.

The Green Shows 2010 were held at Village Green, an eco-indulgent condo building with LEED Gold Certification (LEED = Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.)  Gift bags contained goodies provided by KMS California, popchips, Ozone Socks, Cold River Vodka, The Black & White Cookie Company and Weleda.
