During a jaw-dropping presentation at Portland Fashion Week last week, sustainable lifestyle apparel brand Earthtec unveiled its provocative collaboration with Seth Aaron Henderson, season 7 winner of “Project Runway.” The completely sustainable collaboration was inspired by Earthtec and Seth Aaron’s mutual philosophies of creating “clothing with a conscience.”
Deeply rooted in social responsibility, together Earthtec and Seth Aaron will create 100 percent sustainable, fashion-forward, ready-to-wear clothing that will be available to consumers through major national retailers starting next fall. Using Earthtec’s sustainable textiles and Seth Aaron’s design, the partnership bridges sustainability and fashion to make an exciting statement that sustainability is fashionable.
The Seth Aaron inspired by Earthtec collection was part of this year’s Portland Fashion Week. The eco-friendly production showcased the highest number of sustainable labels of any fashion week in the country, alongside independent and fair-trade high-fashion designers.
EARTHTEC makes sustainable lifestyle apparel from cutting-edge recycled and renewable fabrics like recycled PET (plastic water bottles), organic cotton, and natural wool. Experienced in the garment industry and passionate about the environment, the EARTHTEC team combines emerging textiles, fresh designs, and smart manufacturing techniques to create innovative sustainable clothing and accessories. When people wear EARTHTEC, they can be proud of their contribution to a greener, more sustainable world.
