Eco-Clothing, A Growing Consumer Trend

“Green is the new black,” announced Suzy Menkes, influential fashion critic for the International Herald Tribune. And the fashion queen doesn’t just mean the color. Fashion, fairly manufactured, kind to the environment and the skin, recyclable or even already recycled, is hip today. “Eco-clothing is a consumer trend that has caught on in the masses”, is also the verdict of the future institute Kelkheim. In terms of eco-fashion, Germany is still a “developing country” compared to France or Great Britain, says Bernd Hausmann, who only sells “green” fashion in his Glore boutiques and online. But something is happening: “There are more and more labels. It’s coming slowly,” says the happy businessman. Glore – the name stands for “Global Responsible Fashion”

Clothing made from organic fibers is now also available in every central district town, because the large clothing stores also have “green” collections. In 2008, C&A, Europe’s largest textile chain, processed around 7,500 tons of organic cotton, which corresponds to around 12.6 million items of clothing.

The suppliers of textiles made from controlled organic fibers are on the right track. You can not always call their goods “natural textiles”. Only those who pay attention to ecology from the cradle to the grave have a pure white vest. “The textile industry is currently concentrating too much on fields and fibers,” complains Dr. Kirsten Brodde, who takes a critical look at the greening of the textile industry in her book Clean Things.

Clean fibers alone are not enough

Depending on the garment, up to 20 additional work steps follow, in which chemicals often come into play in conventional processes. “The clothes are literally transformed into ‘sexy underwear'”, says Brodde.

The “Campaign for Clean Clothes”, which advocates fair working conditions in textile production, has calculated that there can easily be 19,000 kilometers between the raw product and the finished jeans.

Then you’d better go for eco-clothing made from organically produced fibers. Many consumers wonder how they can recognize correct clothing. There are labels for natural fashion, but their diversity is more likely to cause confusion. In the absence of uniform criteria, every company or initiative can invent its own “green” logo. Those who value “clean” raw materials and production methods can stick to the Naturtextil Best symbol from the International Association of the Natural Textile Industry. The best-known international symbol is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard). Anyone who is unsure whether a product labeled as organic, eco or any other kind of “green” keeps what it promises, should check the label to see how high the proportion of fibers from controlled organic cultivation is.

Sometimes it turns out that a piece of clothing looks great on the hanger and in the fitting room, but is not very flattering on photos or videos. And you definitely want to prevent that, especially at a party where you know that a lot of photos are taken.

These tips will make sure you get it right with your clothes once and for all for a snap. Bring that lens on. Wearing a white blouse without seeing your bra through it?

Clothing Tips For YouTube Worthy Pictures

  • Choose clothing with one basic color
    Certain patterns can make you look a bit fuller than you actually are. With a blouse, shirt, sweater, pants, or skirt in one basic color, you are always in the right place: this makes your body stand out best.
  • Avoid busy prints
    Prints can also create the illusion that you look wider than you actually are. And they steal the attention of what it’s all about in a photo: your face! If you think basic but boring, choose vertical stripes as a print.
  • Don’t
    wear oversized or very tight clothes. It looks so nice on the catwalk model: that boyfriend blouse or jeans. But in reality, it is quite disappointing once around your body. Dito for dresses that fit terribly tight. Go safe: wear clothes that are between oversized and tight.
  • Wear dark colors
    Light colors will look beautiful on you, but with a dark outfit you really stand out in a photo. Dark fabrics flatter your figure and do not become bizarrely bright due to that flash. Unlike when you wear a candy cane pink lacquer skirt, to name just one example.
  • Try a square neckline
    A round and V-neckline looks good on everyone, so you can’t go wrong with that. But do you want to cover up your breasts a bit? Then go for a shirt or dress with a square neck. If you want to go strapless, it is good to realize that it can make your shoulders look a bit wider. Also, only go for that look if you don’t feel uncomfortable showing off some cleavage.
  • Rather go for classic than hip
    Trends come and go, but style remains. We love to experiment with fashion, but outfits that you know will look good anyway are preferred if you need to be photographed. By wearing clothes that are timelessly elegant, you will never regret your choice of clothing when you see the photo later.
  • Do not wear transparent clothes
    Many a female celebrity has already made a mistake with this: wearing a transparent item, with the result that because of that persistent flash there was more to see than intended. Just don’t take the risk. Not even with fashion tape, which you can use to tape things off. It seldom turns out charming.
