Fab Flash: Behnaz Sarafpour Takes Eco-Style a Step Further

Designer Behnaz Sarafpour is so serious about the green movement, she is planning on using eco-friendly practices at the designer level. In fact, her Spring show this Friday at New York Fashion Week will feature a capsule group made entirely with the environment in mind.

"I love fashion and never thought of it as a banal thing to do," Sarafpour said. "But I think it's important to find something that goes beyond just making beautiful clothes."

So how did she go about it? She researched fabrics and dyes that are safe for the environment. For example, she used an organic waffle-weave cotton from Japan for one coat, then had it dyed with Osage sawdust in New York.

Although her limited edition collection turned out to be more pricey than her regular one, Sarafpour would like to keep developing the concept for future collections. Hopefully she'll inspire her peers to follow suit...
