NY Fashion Week Fix: Gary Harvey's Bespoke Couture Opens The GreenShows

Gary Harvey's Baseball Puffball Dress created out of 26 nylon baseball jackets, ruched and attached to a striped rib corset, worn over a baseball jacket with socks made from the rib cuffs - presented at LFW Estethica in February 2007

Designer Gary Harvey will be the opening (eco fashion) act for The GreenShows during New York Fashion Week on Sunday evening. Harvey's bespoke couture will definitely create 'un spectacle' worthy of making fashionista hearts flutter on Valentine's night.

One of the best round-ups on the ethical-crafting of Harvey's recycled couture appears on Jill Danyelle's blog fiftyrx3. Like Harvey, Danyelle was definitely ahead of the pack in identifying new aesthetic expressions of the sustainable style movement.

*Stay tuned for more coverage on The GreenShows and the ones-to-watch in sustainable fashion for Fall 2010.
