What is sustainable fashion?

Sustainable fashion - It is the entire process of fashion designed in a way to foster greater environmental sense in the process of creating, designing fashion-wear.

The room is slowly filling up with people and the tension is rising inside me: the excitement of seeing what this evening, which we...
