Amsterdam FW: Elsien Gringhuis A/W 2011

Elsien Gringhuis A/W 2011

AIFW Green Competition Winner, Elsien Gringhuis, had her runway presentation yesterday at the close of Amsterdam's fashion week festivities. A minimalist to some, this bright young star has shed new light on chic green styling and sustainable fashion's future . Her brilliantly cut silhouettes are softened by a palette that magically transitions from earth to sky blue hues.

I have to add that I think that the colored eyebrows really suited this collection. The message seemed clear that green is an attitude beyond the donning of eco-friendly fabrics. It comes from within and almost permeates one's countenance and individual expression.
