Everyone everywhere is talking about climate change and its consequences. And there is no point playing the “who is more at fault” game anymore because eventually, everyone will bear the consequences.

“We all are participants of the high energy-consuming social economy, whether it's the manufacturing industry, food production/farming, transportation or basic dependency on air conditioning,” says Akshra Dalal, Director, JD Institute of Fashion Technology, India. 

\r\n\r\n

 

\r\n\r\n

In August last year, during the G7 summit, the world witnessed what could be perhaps the bravest move within the fashion industry yet, when the most influential fashion houses, under the direction of French president Emmanuel Macron, came together to form a Fashion Pact.

\r\n\r\n

 

\r\n\r\n

According to her, “The event saw a coalition of fashion labels with an objective of giving the Sustainable Fashion Movement a major boost in the right direction by setting up a consciously planned and attainable agenda in order to make concrete changes within the fashion industry, instead of depending entirely on the consumer level.”

\r\n\r\n

Over the last couple of years, an array of innovative inventions has been flooding the design world along with alternative, ethically sourced materials. We bring to you 7 designer brands, from across the world that have not only embraced sustainability but have taken it to another level.

\r\n\r\n

1) ORANGE FIBER CAPSULE COLLECTION BY SALVATORE FERRAGAMO: Just a couple of years ago, Salvatore Ferragamo patented a novel process of utilizing common food waste, to be more specific, humble fiber obtained from the skins of edible Orange, the first material extracted from a citrus fruits.

The chairman of the council, Sunil Sethi confirmed that there has been a trial run of sorts and are updating their technology, keeping a close eye on the developing global events.\r\n\r\n“Everyone has always said that India is nascent in the fashion scene and that Paris, London…have been hosting fashion weeks for so many years, We don’t want to be behind in the race anymore. So, we are starting a digital fashion week in the same year as everyone else,” says Mr Sethi, “I am excited and we have seen the same excitement from our designers when we were doing our homework.”\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHe adds, “The show has to go on. We are not insensitive people who are going to ask people to buy when the sentiment is not right. But, if we don’t prepare ourselves now, we would be in a situation where people are folding up and shutting shops. FDCI in order to continue has pressed the reset button.”  \r\n\r\nWhen…  \r\n\r\n“So, the consensus of the designers is still coming in but most of them prefer a date in August for this. Our couture weeks (usually in July end-August) have always been a huge success. The government isn’t saying no to weddings, they are just asking people to reduce the scale of the event. So, if the weddings are taking place, the bride will be dressed up in an outfit of her dreams. And, if her dream is an outfit from an Indian couturier, this will be a platform for her to choose that. We don’t want to wait for July-August to be told that a public event cannot happen. When they say that we want to be ready with a digital event. We are planning for the future.”\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nWhat exactly will a digital fashion week entail?\r\n\r\n“We are planning a 360-degree approach. So, there will be content, videos and runways. It will not just be one thing.”\r\n\r\nWill there be models on the runway?\r\n\r\n“At this point, people are stricter with social-distancing because we are all worried about our life. So, if the government allows we will have live models as well. We have already included models in our trial plans as well. The designers and the talent are a key part of a fashion week…but then again, it all depends on the regulations at the given time. But one thing is certain that it will be a no-live audience setup. The audience will be digital.”  \r\n\r\nHow can the buyers be involved? \r\n\r\n“We have always insisted on the business of fashion and that is on our top priority. We have already done the ‘see now, buy now’ runway concept before during our partnership with Amazon. We will be more than happy to have an E-commerce partner where the designer and the website make a sale. FDCI is not concerned about the sales, we just want to give the designers a platform to connect. It is easier with pret, but in couture, even if you say buy now you need to consider the nuances that the garment is bespoke and needs to be fitted.”   \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nCosmo also spoke to veteran designers and models to know their take on the new normal and here's what they had to say:\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n‘Going digital is the need of the hour…but fashion weeks will not lose its essence of humanity’\r\n\r\n- Deepti Gujral, model and artist\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\"Even though I don’t really know how exactly this digital fashion week will manifest but it does sound very exciting and I am glad FDCI is taking a stand such as this. Many industries have been hit hard due to the pandemic, more so the fashion industry. This will be a great opportunity to show solidarity among the designers, models and everyone who is part of this program to make a statement that we are not going to get defeated by the current situation and not get disheartened. There is always a light at the end tunnel. \r\n\r\nWe have all watched sci-fi and fantasy movies but I have never imagined that I would ever live through a situation such as this in my lifetime. It is almost like a war between humans and a virus. If you look at it in a dramatic way. My mum was born in 1947 and she knows the after-effects of war but even so she says that she has never experienced anything like this before. So it is not only going to affect us now but even in the generations to come. We don’t know anything about it and it has affected the whole world. So, even though we are going through tough times, I still feel that we shall overcome this aspect of our life. So, the moment the vaccine comes in, hallelujah we will be back in action!\r\n\r\nThe only thing constant is change. So, even though fashion weeks are going through a change, when things settle down a bit, maybe not now, it will be changed but it will not lose its essence of humanity. Right now, going digital and social media is the need of the hour. But it is my opinion, then again I am not a scientist nevertheless I just feel human beings will want the real aspect of a fashion week eventually when things get better.      \r\n\r\n‘Digital fashion week is a positive step towards sustainability’\r\n\r\n- Urvashi Kaur, fashion designer and Associate Member of FDCI\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n“With the world in a state of suspension, we're all looking at the future with a sense of hope and expectation. In such a scenario it's very important to rethink existing formats to make way for newer, more relevant ways of working and coexisting. The FDCI's initiative of digitising and hosting India's first Digital Fashion Week is perfectly timed and definitely the way forward. Being digital enables access to so many more people as well as minimizing the environmental impact of the event as a whole. To me, this is certainly a positive step towards sustainability. I'm so happy to see new benchmarks being set in our industry and am excited to be a part of this forward-thinking movement!” \r\n","type":"story","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":"cosmopolitan india, cosmo india, digital fashion week, FDCI, Sunil Sehti, india digital fashion week, indias first digital fashion week, fashion design council of India, coronavirus, covid 19 and fashion, pandemic fashion, deepti gujral, model, indian model, indian super model, designer Urvashi kaur, fashion designer urvashi kaur, sustainable fashion, fashion weeks, fashion week dates, digital fashion week dates ","field_meta_keyword":"cosmopolitan india, cosmo india, digital fashion week, FDCI, Sunil Sehti, india digital fashion week, indias first digital fashion week, fashion design council of India, coronavirus, covid 19 and fashion, pandemic fashion, deepti gujral, model, indian model, indian super model, designer Urvashi kaur, fashion designer urvashi kaur, sustainable fashion, fashion weeks, fashion week dates, digital fashion week dates ","image":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-05/Untitled%20design%20%283%29_1.png?bAZohzV4jxaRBcfy8C9.NRQK9L1GFdvk","image1x1":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-05/Untitled%20design%20%283%29_1.png?bAZohzV4jxaRBcfy8C9.NRQK9L1GFdvk","field_editory_by":null,"path":"/fashion/features/a20341/fdci-announces-indias-first-digital-fashion-week-heres-everything-you-need","created":"25 May 2020 ","time_created":"2020-05-25T20:00:00+05:30","field_section":"Fashion","field_section_url":"/fashion","field_content_type":"Features","notes":null,"notes_syn":null,"userData_node":null,"userData":{"uid":"630","field_first_name":"Arpita Kala","editor_sef":"/author/630/arpita"},"field_first_name":"Arpita Kala","authorpath":null,"userPicUrl":null},{"nid":"20342","title":"Gucci Goes Seasonless and Will Now Have Two Shows Per Year","field_dek":"“I will abandon the worn-out ritual of seasonalities and shows to regain a new cadence, closer to my expressive call,” says designer Alessandro Michele.\r\n","modified":"2020-05-25 16:09:46","status":"1","field_full_dek":"The Covid-19 pandemic is affecting the worldwide fashion industry, prompting brands big and small to take a step back and revaluate the way things are done.

Accordingly, there will be symphonies, rhapsodies, madrigals, nocturnes, overtures, concerts and minuets in the constellation of my creative path. Music, after all, has the sacred power to produce reverberations and connections. It travels beyond the borders, reconnecting the fragility to the infinity.” A new path in fashion that leaves behind the paraphernalia of leitmotifs that colonized our prior world, according to @alessandro_michele in ‘The Sacred Power of Producing Reverberations’, his diary entry for May 3, 2020. #AlessandroMichele Read his diary through link in bio.\r\n\r\nA post shared by Gucci (@gucci) on May 23, 2020 at 11:20am PDT\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nIn recent years, Gucci has been known to reinvent a wholly modern approach to fashion. Under the new vision of creative director Alessandro Michele, they have redefined luxury for the 21st century, further reinforcing its position as one of the world's most desirable fashion houses. The traditional system followed by fashion weeks and the fashion industry — conceived for a pre-internet, pre-global era — that has long governed the industry’s approach to developing, showing, delivering and discounting collections, is headed towards a change . Gucci’s move throws the weight of a megabrand behind the drive to rewire the fashion industry. Saint Laurent, which is also owned by French conglomerate Kering, has announced its intention to skip Paris Fashion Week this September and reshape its schedule for showing collections for the rest of the year.\r\n\r\nThe global pandemic has definitely had a huge impact on the industry, and the economy at large. And then, there is the issue of climate change and global warming to be considered, leading to a movement in the fashion industry to adopt more sustainable production practices. With Gucci boldly taking this step very firmly in a direction that seems to be the need of the hour,  It won't be too big a surprise if other major fashion houses decide to follow suit.\r\n","type":"story","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":"gucci, gucci seasonless, gucci shows, gucci fashion shows, gucci fashion calendar, alessandro michele, alessandro michele insta, coronavirus, coronavirus pandemic, covid 19, covid 19 pandemic, coronavirus impact on fashion ,simrit tiwana ","field_meta_keyword":null,"image":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-05/Screenshot%202020-05-25%20at%207.53.37%20PM.png?9Kwu2d7do4JDYXZSnrNyqSMJrJ9_zoIo","image1x1":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-05/Screenshot%202020-05-25%20at%207.53.37%20PM.png?9Kwu2d7do4JDYXZSnrNyqSMJrJ9_zoIo","field_editory_by":null,"path":"/fashion/features/a20342/gucci-goes-seasonless-and-will-now-have-two-shows-year","created":"25 May 2020 ","time_created":"2020-05-25T17:00:00+05:30","field_section":"Fashion","field_section_url":"/fashion","field_content_type":"Features","notes":null,"notes_syn":null,"userData_node":null,"userData":{"userPicUrl":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/user/images/photo_200_1495215595.jpg","uid":"467","field_first_name":"Simrit Tiwana","editor_sef":"/author/467/stiwan"},"field_first_name":"Simrit Tiwana","authorpath":null,"userPicUrl":null},{"nid":"20319","title":"20 Fun Nail Art Ideas to Try Out This Season","field_dek":"From floral motifs on long nails to cute pastel hues for short ones, get your fill of nail inspo here.\r\n","modified":"2020-05-22 11:25:16","status":"1","field_full_dek":"","type":"gallery","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":null,"field_meta_keyword":null,"image":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-05/20%20Fun%20Nail%20Art%20Ideas%20to%20Try%20Out%20This%20Season.png?spjUucWb6CvTwjNSKKMWKC_FRR_E2kDT","image1x1":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-05/20%20Fun%20Nail%20Art%20Ideas%20to%20Try%20Out%20This%20Season.png?spjUucWb6CvTwjNSKKMWKC_FRR_E2kDT","field_editory_by":null,"path":"/fashion/features/g20319/20-fun-nail-art-ideas-try-out-season","created":"22 May 2020 ","time_created":"2020-05-22T16:30:00+05:30","field_section":"Fashion","field_section_url":"/fashion","field_content_type":"Features","notes":null,"notes_syn":null,"userData_node":null,"userData":{"userPicUrl":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/pictures/2018-04/aa.jpg?PdqzW_Qeo8IetV5zdrHW2qnt.gsWZKvT","uid":"625","field_first_name":"S ","editor_sef":"/author/625/Suprresed"},"field_first_name":"Suprresed","authorpath":null,"userPicUrl":null},{"nid":"20266","title":"Work From Home Fashion Ideas from Celebrity Stylist","field_dek":"Antara Motiwala Marwah, style curator and fashion consultant, puts together 5 exclusive WFH looks\r\n","modified":"2020-05-14 12:43:02","status":"1","field_full_dek":"","type":"gallery","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":null,"field_meta_keyword":"antara motiwala marwah\r\n\r\nstylist antara motiwala marwah\r\n\r\nantara motiwala marwah style tips\r\n\r\nantara motiwala marwah style tips for wfh\r\n\r\nstyle for work from home meetings\r\n\r\nstyle for wfh meetings\r\n\r\nwork from home style\r\n\r\nwork from home style guide\r\n\r\nwork from home style ideas\r\n\r\nwork from home style tips\r\n\r\nwork from home style tips and tricks\r\n\r\nBollywood celebrity, Bollywood scandal, Bollywood gossip, Bollywood actor, Bollywood actress, Bollywood, Bollywood latest, Bollywood news, cosmo, cosmpolitan, cosmopolitan india, cosmopolitan.in, cosmo.in\r\n\r\nworkfromhomefit\r\nsonam kapoor","image":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-05/8A302E14-4327-4A53-8530-CF514EA58866-2x1.jpg?t3d34Q4PVTBEI5RvXJelqN3NpcGYypCx","image1x1":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-05/8A302E14-4327-4A53-8530-CF514EA58866-2x1.jpg?t3d34Q4PVTBEI5RvXJelqN3NpcGYypCx","field_editory_by":null,"path":"/fashion/features/g20266/work-home-fashion-ideas-celebrity-stylist","created":"14 May 2020 ","time_created":"2020-05-14T18:00:00+05:30","field_section":"Fashion","field_section_url":"/fashion","field_content_type":"Features","notes":null,"notes_syn":null,"userData_node":null,"userData":{"uid":"636","field_first_name":"Chirag Samal","editor_sef":"/author/636/chirag"},"field_first_name":"Chirag Samal","authorpath":null,"userPicUrl":null},{"nid":"20258","title":"Find the Perfect Jeans for Your Body Type","field_dek":"Flatter your shape by picking the right fit\r\n","modified":"2020-05-13 14:53:31","status":"1","field_full_dek":"There’s nothing like finding the right pair of jeans. The perfect fit can instantly boost your mood, confidence and make you feel better. How we wish we could find the magic pair like the one in The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants that would fit us and accentuate our curves IRL.  Since, that’s not happening, the next best thing to do is choose a pair keeping your body type in mind. This is how you should go about finding a good pair of jeans. \r\n\r\nIf you are short…\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\nOpt for straight leg jeans. Anything baggy or with volume around the legs would make you look shorter. Straight fits in darker shades elongate your legs and balance out the torso. \r\n\r\nIf you are curvy…\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nTry the high-waisted skinny jeans in a stretch fit. Avoid flared or boot cuts as that would make you look bulkier. A stretch fit will hug your curves in the right places. \r\n\r\nIf you are pear shaped…\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nGo for boyfriend jeans, they will balance out the ratio and fit your curvy hips well. The relaxed fit also gives an illusion of long legs. Also, high waisted denims are a good choice as they will cover your hips and highlight your slim waist. \r\n\r\nIf you are tall\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nYou can work most styles with ease. But the boot cut or flared denims will visually add curves to your frame.

For AXIL, we looked at the wildflower as a metaphor to represent femininity and how it conforms to a fabricated life made of concrete and polymers. All the pieces emanate the idea of a blooming flower thrown in industrial waste, and at the same time, mimic industrial aspects through hand-done techniques.”\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nCosmo: You are often inspired by architecture. Is that the case with AXIL, too? \r\n\r\nAA: “Zaha Hadid’s intensely futuristic architecture, characterised by curving facades and sharp angles, has always inspired me. She took the strongest materials and manipulated them to form buildings that appear both soft and sturdy at once. If you look closely, you will see the same temperament in my pieces, too.”\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nCosmo: What does the colour scheme represent?\r\n\r\nAA: “As I mentioned before, the mood for AXIL is of a flower growing in the middle of concrete. It’s an interesting understanding of the vivid flora that would surround us in the future, out of cross-pollination, and co-exist with cement, brick, steel and metal. Each garment envelops us into a trance, as rich fabrics in the many greens of ivy, dusted mauves, violets of thistle, rich berry red of amarantham and silver birch glide through light and shadow, presenting a palette of contrasts.”\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nCosmo: What are the key techniques that you have used?\r\n\r\nAA: “This time, we’ve taken our drive to be more sustainable up a notch. We’ve looked hundreds of years into the future, and cast a lot of plastic to create newer, more thoughtful textiles. While the brand has always used recycled polymer as strips, this collection sees it in full-moulded form. I believe everything can be used in an elegant way, and through our designs, we want you to be able to create a blouse from a dump of plastic lying around the house. Along with that, recycled sequin tubes, corded ruffles and moulded acrylic are some of the elements our design team works with to create structures that represent our brand DNA. Techniques such as pleating, ribbing through polymer, plissé, fine draping, and 3D embroideries also serve as a reminder of our craftsmanship.”\r\n\r\n\r\n","type":"story","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":"cosmo, cosmpolitan, cosmopolitan india, cosmopolitan.in, cosmo.in, fashion designer, fashion, amit

Jeans","field_dek":"Scissors? Check. Bobby pins? Check. Tweezers? Check.\r\n","modified":"2020-05-06 06:59:08","status":"1","field_full_dek":"\r\n\r\nYou’ve all probs heard it from your mom when you were younger: “Why are you spending money on jeans that are already ripped?!” But there’s just something about the look of distressed denim that’s so much cooler and more relaxed than a regular pair, MOM. Although she was right that distressed denim can be pricey—maybe even more so than unripped pairs. There are a bunch of ways, though, to get that same worn-in look on your own, and the good news is you’ll be saving money while doing it!\r\n\r\nAlmost all of these methods use simple household items (I know you have tons of bobby pins lying around!), so with some time and a lil patience, you can transform any of your old jeans into the tattered, frayed, holey pair you’ve always wanted. Choose one, two, or all the tips at once to distress your jeans just the way you like ’em.\r\n\r\n1. Fade the dye (optional).\r\n\r\nI prefer the look of jeans that have really been put through the wash a few times. You can achieve this by washing the jeans for two years straight, or do what I did: Make a mixture of 50-50 water and bleach. I painted the bleach water on the jeans with a brush to give it a streaky effect and focused most of the bleach water at the knees, where jeans tend to fade the most.\r\n\r\n let the bleach water set overnight to make them really light\r\n\r\n(I recommend checking on them every hour or so to make sure your denim isn’t fading too fast for your liking), and then an hour before I washed and dried them, I painted the seams (where jeans tend to hold on to color the most) one last time for an even fade all over.\r\n\r\nIf you don’t have a paintbrush on hand, soaking the whole pair in a mix of water and bleach also lightens them all over (like in the video above), but with this method, you can’t really lighten one specific area. Or you can skip this step completely if you’re satisfied with the color!\r\n\r\n2. Fray the pockets and edges.\r\n\r\nOne of the quickest ways to fray denim is with a regular disposable shaving razor or sandpaper. These are particularly helpful when going over the zipper area, waistband, and pockets. Just scrape the razor or press the sandpaper back and forth until you get the look you want. You can also use the items to make frayed patches on the jeans.\r\n\r\n3. Use bobby pins to make smaller holes.\r\n\r\nThese are good for subtle distressing. Use a bobby pin with a blunt metal edge to pick and scrape at the denim and create tiny holes.\r\n\r\n4. Cut and pluck for big threaded holes.\r\n\r\nThis is my favorite way to distress jeans because the finished look is always so cool. To start, cut horizontal strips half an inch apart. Make the strips as long as you want the hole to be. Take a pair of tweezers and pluck all the blue threads out of the strips. In denim, the white threads run horizontally and the blue run vertically. By removing the blue threads, you can create that horizontal white threaded look. I also tore some of the white threads to make the opening a little messier.\r\n\r\n5. Rub with sandpaper for softness.\r\n\r\nTo make your jeans look (and feel) more lived-in, rub them down with some sandpaper. Remember: The coarser the grit (i.e., the rougher the sandpaper), the more it will create holes in your denim, so if you only want to make the fabric more soft, choose one that’s less coarse.\r\n","type":"story","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":null,"field_meta_keyword":null,"image":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-05/Screenshot%202020-05-06%20at%2012.15.00%20PM.png?1zXg608bu6fuIQWM.5bNRCtha7NVu4Q0","image1x1":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-05/Screenshot%202020-05-06%20at%2012.15.00%20PM.png?1zXg608bu6fuIQWM.5bNRCtha7NVu4Q0","field_editory_by":null,"path":"/fashion/features/a20194/5-easy-ways-make-your-own-pair-distressed-jeans","created":"06 May 2020 ","time_created":"2020-05-06T11:00:00+05:30","field_section":"Fashion","field_section_url":"/fashion","field_content_type":"Features","notes":"https://www.cosmopolitan.com/style-beauty/fashion/a58592/5-easy-tricks-for-distressing-your-jeans/","notes_syn":"Cosmopolitan","userData_node":null,"userData":{"userPicUrl":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/pictures/2018-04/aa.jpg?PdqzW_Qeo8IetV5zdrHW2qnt.gsWZKvT","uid":"625","field_first_name":"S ","editor_sef":"/author/625/Suprresed"},"field_first_name":"Suprresed","authorpath":null,"userPicUrl":null},{"nid":"20183","title":"12 of the Most Awkward Met Gala Moments of All Time","field_dek":"Despite it being postponed, we can still reminisce...\r\n","modified":"2020-05-04 08:34:42","status":"1","field_full_dek":"This year's Met Gala has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, but that's no excuse for us not to share a story about all the awkward moments that have taken place at the annual fashion event over the years.\r\n\r\nFrom Kylie Jenner looking outrageously bored sitting next to Ryan Reynold's in 2017 to Jay Z and Solange's bust up in 2014, let's look back at some of the most awkward moments to ever happen at Met Balls gone by.\r\n\r\n1.

When Jay-Z and Solange Knowles had a bust up in a lift, 2014\r\n\r\nYep. *That* infamous life fight, which Jay-Z and Beyonce's dad have since confirmed was about rumours the rapper had cheated on Beyonce, was at a Met Gala afterparty in 2014.\r\n\r\n3. When Rihanna's dress launched a thousand memes, 2015\r\n\r\nYou can always rely on Rihanna to make a statement with her dress. Albeit it a cheese and tomato-y statement that sparks all the memes.\r\n\r\n4. When Hayden Panettiere fell down the stairs on the red carpet, 2014\r\n\r\nJust before this photo was taken, the Heroes star slipped down the Met Gala stairs and ended up on the floor. Oops!\r\n\r\n5. When someone streaked down the red carpet, 2014\r\n\r\nRenowned Ukrainian prankster Vitalii Sediuk streaked down the red carpet in 2014 wearing a gold chain and a pink mankini. We imagine this went down as badly as some of these acceptance speeches..\r\n\r\n6. When Rihanna shaded everyone for not taking the theme seriously, 2017\r\n\r\nEach year the Met Gala adopts a high fashion theme, and in 2017, Rihanna threw subtle shade at everyone who didn't take it seriously. The theme was 'Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between', and while Rihanna took the theme seriously with her flawless ensemble, many celebrities opted for more plain outfits.\r\n\r\nBuzzfeed reported Rihanna threw expert levels of shade at everyone else on the night by liking a meme on Instagram that began circling the internet during the evening, poking fun at how boring most of the evening's looks were.\r\n\r\n7. When Reese Witherspoon couldn't pronounce Cara Delevingne's last name, 2014\r\n\r\nCara shared a hilarious clip from 2014 on her Met Gala, which showed a seemingly drunk Reese Witherspoon, Zoey Deschanel and Kate Upton attempting to pronounce her last name. Oops.\r\n\r\n8. When Jennifer Lawrence photobombed Sarah Jessica Parker, 2013\r\n\r\nDespite not *actually* knowing each other, Jennifer Lawrence crashed Sarah Jessica Parker's photo opportunity by holding onto her headpiece, and the result was hilarious.\r\n\r\n9. When Bella Hadid walked the same catwalk as ex The Weeknd and Selena Gomez, 2017\r\n\r\nAt the 2016 Met Gala, The Weeknd and Bella Hadid looked loved up and cute as they walked the red carpet together. Come 2017, The Weeknd and new girlfriend (now ex) Selena Gomez took centre stage following his split from Bella, while the model took her mum Yolanda Hadid as her date instead.\r\n\r\n10. When Jaden Smith brought his old hair as his date, 2017\r\n\r\nSpeaking to US Vogue's André Leon about his unusual look on the night, Jaden explained: \"I've gone for the Dracula look today. And since I couldn't bring my sister as a date, I brought my old hair.\"\r\n\r\nOk then.\r\n\r\n11. When Jenni Konner, Lena Dunham, and Joe Jonas wore the same outfit, 2017\r\n\r\nWhat better way to celebrate turning up wearing the same outfit as two other celebrities than posing for a pic all together? Amazing.\r\n\r\n12. When you felt like you'd seen Kendall and Kylie's lewks before, 2019\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n","type":"story","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":null,"field_meta_keyword":null,"image":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-05/Untitled%20design_0.png?fmmxlmZaLENf21_oXstQRWpCYqzu6HAV","image1x1":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-05/Untitled%20design_0.png?fmmxlmZaLENf21_oXstQRWpCYqzu6HAV","field_editory_by":null,"path":"/fashion/features/a20183/12-most-awkward-met-gala-moments-all-time","created":"04

These 7 Designers Have Taken the Sustainable Approach to a Whole New Level

In 2020, sustainability is at the top of the fashion industry’s agenda.

Everyone everywhere is talking about climate change and its consequences. And there is no point playing the “who is more at fault” game anymore because eventually, everyone will bear the consequences.

 

“We all are participants of the high energy-consuming social economy, whether it's the manufacturing industry, food production/farming, transportation or basic dependency on air conditioning,” says Akshra Dalal, Director, JD Institute of Fashion Technology, India. 

 

In August last year, during the G7 summit, the world witnessed what could be perhaps the bravest move within the fashion industry yet, when the most influential fashion houses, under the direction of French president Emmanuel Macron, came together to form a Fashion Pact.

 

According to her, “The event saw a coalition of fashion labels with an objective of giving the Sustainable Fashion Movement a major boost in the right direction by setting up a consciously planned and attainable agenda in order to make concrete changes within the fashion industry, instead of depending entirely on the consumer level.”

 

Over the last couple of years, an array of innovative inventions has been flooding the design world along with alternative, ethically sourced materials. We bring to you 7 designer brands, from across the world that have not only embraced sustainability but have taken it to another level.

 

1) ORANGE FIBER CAPSULE COLLECTION BY SALVATORE FERRAGAMO: Just a couple of years ago, Salvatore Ferragamo patented a novel process of utilizing common food waste, to be more specific, humble fiber obtained from the skins of edible Orange, the first material extracted from a citrus fruits.

2) LEATHER FREE BAGS BY BOTTEGA VENETA: Bottega Veneta surprised us with the startling collection of entirely leather-free handbags. Leather is replaced with woven Washi, a delicate material (a paper) obtained from the bark of the rapidly growing Kazo tree, found in abundance in Japan and also known a relative of mulberry.

3) FUR FREE BAGS BY GUCCI: Gucci tried to take a strong stand among the leading fashion labels with its decision to go Fur free, setting the stage for other mainstream brands, yet to embrace the ethical, fur-free road, to follow, get inspirations from.

4) BEAUTY AND THE BEAST CAPSULE BY CHRISTOPHER KANE: Inspired by Disney's 'Beauty and the Beast', especially celebrating the character of Bella played by Emma Watson, designer Christopher Kane has come up with a ready to wear limited edition capsule collection for both the sexes using materials from EU's leading ethical factories, organic cotton, organic silk with complemented with Swarovski crystals.

5) BODICE DESIGNER RUCHIKA SACHDEVA: The young designer, who got trained under Vivienne Westwood in London previously, made a brave statement with her award winning design collection for the International Woolmark Prize 2018 and stood out in contrast to its contemporaries, employing a casually sustainable approach and conscious choice.

6) PERO BY ANITA DONGRE: The designer made a stunning statement with her Eco Fashion brand Pero that attempts to incorporate a novel technique by using paper as a textile.

7) NIKE: Ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Games, the brand debuted progressive new collections featuring sustainable materials for all athletes. As the growing climate emergency continues to disrupt competition and training, Nike’s sustainable innovations signal the brand’s commitment to helping protect the future of the planet – and, consequently, the future of sports. Highlights include their most sustainably designed medal stand uniform in Team USA history, footwear built predominantly from recycled waste and lifestyle apparel that embraces the goal of a zero-carbon future.
