The Andean Collection at Nolcha FW 2009

Congratulations to Amanda Judge on today's presentation of her totally inspiring, socially conscious Andean Collection at Nolcha's Ethical Fashion Preview/New York Fashion Week. I have featured AC and their talented artisans on ecco*eco before, but the latest Fall 2009 collection is even more timely and fashion-forward in spirit. My favorite new piece is the Circle Cascade Necklace, hand-carved from tagua by artist Christian Romero.

Artist Olga Lucia Moran, age 31: Not long before working with The Andean Collection, Olga she was selling grain at the local market, forgoing meals in order to feed her children
