Introducing eco-model Ariel Clay in NYC
Shopping for a winter coat has definitely been on my mind these past few weeks, particularly after New York City's brief and unexpected Halloween snowstorm. As a native Californian and newcomer to New York, I have been on a mission to find something warm yet also uniquely stylish. And as a shopper who seeks out eco-friendly wardrobe options, I was thrilled to learn more about Feral Childe's Fall/Winter 2011 collection during this past weekend's trunk show at Kaight Brooklyn.

Feral Childe, the creative endeavor of Moriah Carlson and Alice Wu, is a sustainable fashion line that sources the finest eco materials and while also doing all of their production locally in New York City. Their Fall/Winter 2011 collection is based on the theme, 'Orchestra' (each season has a specific theme), and this latest collection celebrates chic easy to wear dresses, tops, jackets, and pants. I particularly fell in love with their cozy fleece jackets and wool coats, though.

I know that these coats would keep me warm and stylish all winter long.
I love the belted ties on the long coat and tuxedo tailoring on the jacket.
Stay tuned for more of Ariel's reports from NYC.
