Posh Swaps Blog For Coutorture: Irresistible Eco Style

The great thing about second hand, vintage and recycled clothes is that the pieces have a story to tell. While the silhouette might be updated, the history of the garment is preserved. Combined with the fact that recycled fashion is a sustainable practice, this niche industry is gaining recognition on a global scale.

In honor of the upcoming bridal season and in an effort to commend designers who consider the environment in their practice, we want to mention Julia Barbee of Frocky Jack Morgan. This Portland-based designer produces formal clothing and accessories by deconstructing recycled and vintage pieces. The dresses are fit for a fairy tale and incorporate intricate details and embellishments. Barbee uses extraordinary antique garments and old couture hems in her work. You can learn more about the designer right here.
