New Sustainable Fashion Brand lur apparel Goes Beyond Organic With 100% Recycled Materials.
Mark Heiman, a textile industry veteran, was disenchanted with the fashion industry's move towards low-quality, high impact, disposable fashion. Along with friend Alan Brown, he set out to create new technology that would reduce the impact fashion has on the environment.
The result of their efforts is a new fashion line called lur™ apparel. lur™ apparel produces sustainable fashion made from 100% recycled materials. The goal of lur™ apparel is to knit beauty, sustainability, and social responsibility into each and every piece of clothing.
The company says their products are more sustainable and environmentally friendly than organic cotton - while still remaining just as beautiful and soft to the touch. The fabric is made from pre-consumer recycled cotton scraps and recycled polyester from plastic bottles.
At launch lur™’s line carries twenty seven apparel styles and the company estimates that through their production process, each item of lur™ clothing saves roughly 160 gallons of fresh water from entering the waste stream.
In addition to producing clothing in a sustainable manner, the company also seeks to give back to those in need. A portion of the profits from lur™ apparel go to help women establish their own businesses and gain access to education to allow themselves, their families, and their communities, the opportunity to rise out of poverty.
“We call lur™ apparel ‘Fashion for Change’ because we believe it is the first time that care for the planet, fair wages, and modern styling have been united under one brand,” said co-founder Alan Brown.
The line is available at www.lurapparel.com and at select boutiques across country.
Being green has ever been so chic. Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, has ingrated the GREENshowroom into it's worldwind of shows and events. The showroom has been very successful for 6 years and takes place at the Hotel Adlon Kempinski in Berlin, during Berlin's Fashion Week. It's a showcase designed to display eco fashion trends to the vast national and international crowds. Magdalena Schaffrin and Jana Keller, founders of the exhibition are extremely delighted by the success of the event. "It is great to see such a positive mood and enthusiasm amongst the exhibitors and the audience. This shows us that consciousness is growing towards a more sustainable living and Green Luxury is en vogue. We are very pleased that the idea and concept of GREENshowrooms is so well received. "
This years GREENshowroom included 25 labels, like well-known designers Anne Gorke, Deep Mello and Sarah Reinhard. Each fashion house must prove in advance that at least 60% of the collection is green before their models can hit the catwalk. Make up for the show was by AVEDA. The all natural cosmetic brand used pink eye shadow in soft rouge on the outer corners of the eyes. The rest of the make up remained natural; only the lips were accented with pink lip gloss. Voluminous hairstyles and soft colors dominated the show. Hopefuly New York's Fashion Week will soon have a GREENshowroom.
