Paris Fashion Week's A/W 2010 prêt-à-porter collections are always a glowing light at the end of a long winter tunnel, and I hope to pay a visit during this time to the sparkling city of lights for some sustainable style magic and long overdue time with dear friends. I currently have my eye on Eva Zingoni and her chic and sleek limited-series garments made with high-quality (prestigious) textiles recycled from famous Parisian fashion houses. They are the perfect antidote to fashion week fatigue and outright material consumption.

"Each unique and luxurious fabric that the designer collects inspires the form, tailoring, and texture of her garments. Each design is made exclusively in French workshops, a decision dictated by Eva’s respect for craftmanship and her desire to support and sustain outstanding local talent." - Eva Zingoni
