Inspired by events in her own life, Bridger creates a masterpiece of visible emotion, complimented by music, yoga and dance.

Eco Fashion Week

The runway shows were inspiring, the trade show exciting and the fashion absolutely amazing. Aside from stand-out clothing, the Eco Fashion Week trade show was home to a variety of eco friendly make-up, accessories, handbags and even a collection of bicycles. Here are few photos to tide you over. Interview with Nicole Bridger to come!!

Collection by Jujube, all made with certified eco-friendly, socially responsible fabrics.

Malene’s Spring/Summer 2011 is a contemporary trip back to an era when class and style were not just for special events. To often we only dress up for certain events as there is a void between casual and formal in today’s market.

Her Spring/Summer 2011 line reminds us that simple classic looks can be achieved without going over the top and looking garish and tacky.
