Fashion week: Four sustainable favourites

You may have noticed that Make it last doesn’t cover the fashion weeks thoroughly. Since we emphasize long-lasting fashion, it just doesn’t feel very urgent. However, there are quite a few sustainable designers out there who deserve attention. Here, Make it last enlists four favourite sustainable designers from fashion month.

Eckhaus Latta

This New York-based label is one of the most exciting and talked about young brands at the moment. Together, Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta create more than a collection, rather an atmosphere, together with New York art school-kids and their progressive runway presentations. It’s refreshing to see such a contemporary and hyped brand care about sustainability–much (up to 90% for the previous autumn collection) of the garments consist of reused materials. Eckhaus Latta’s collection made it up to Vogues’s Top 7 fall collections list. Above are some of our favourite looks from the presentation.


Edun is amongst Make it last’s favourites, being a modern, sustainable label that succeeds with what many fashion houses seem to find difficult still today: creating conscious contemporary style with a sustainable approach. These are three of our favourite looks from the fall 2016 show.

Stella McCartney

Being a favourite among conscious consumers around the world, and also a recurring favourite at Make it last, it’s hard not to include Stella McCartney in a summary like this one. For fall, Stella McCartney gave us puffer jackets (stuffed with feather-free wadding of course), tie-dye denim, animal prints and skin-free skin jackets, presented with the “Get yo tofu on” soundtrack by Snaxx boosting in the background. Yet another reason to love Stella!

Organic by John Patrick

John Patrick has become a front figure for contemporary, ethical fashion. As became apparent in this interview with our editor-in-chief Lisa Corneliusson, John Patrick is a rather ideological person, driven by the belief that beauty and ethics can coexist. This serves as his motive for creating wearable design with sustainability as a core characteristic instead of an added detail. These are some of our favourite looks from the fall 2016 collection.
