8 Days 8 Ways

As 2013 draws to a close, EKOCYCLE is excited to announce our 8 Days and 8 Ways campaign: a celebration of the future faces of sustainable fashion. Through interviews with innovative designers, stylists, bloggers and photographers, we are highlighting their perspective on how sustainability and social conscience will affect the future of fashion. Each of these trendsetters is taking the future into their own hands by developing fashion lines, creating online outlets/blogs and capturing style through their own lenses that are not status-quo. They've seen an opportunity to change the way materials are sourced and used — and they're seizing it. Their vision, passion and efforts to change the future by rethinking what we already have make them part of the EKOCYCLE movement. We're inspired to consider these unique and creative individuals our peers.

Check out their full profiles as we reveal our 8 Days and 8 Ways campaign below:
