I just discovered Nixxi, a fabulous fashion label whose clothes are uber cool and glamourous, as well as being sustainably produced. Bravo!

Nixxi has been nominated for a ‘Fashion Takes Action’ award, and I hope they do well! The clothes are utterly feminine and gorgeous.

Branch Boutique – A new online sustainable fashion store launched this week. Deirdre Holbrook, founder of Branch Boutique, is “embracing alternative fabrics created from milk, bark, seaweed, and hemp”; she introduces us to her online eco-shop, below the fold.

“After working in sustainable fashion PR for the past four years, I decided what many of emerging designers need now is a highly supportive retail site that promotes them to larger audiences and other retailers. We focus on new and difficult to find designers, and carry no more than 20 each season; what we feel are the best of the best in each category. Current designers include mr. Larkin, Mika Organic, Lina Rinnell, BlankVerse jewelry, Manu lingerie, and more. We’re offering a unified look and feel, as if you’re entering a boutique, and take all of our own photos for the site.” (Thank you http://www.treehugger.com/ for this lovely quote)
