Jordanian eco-fashion show in Amman goes green: sustainable fashion meets pop culture
Jordanian Eco-Fashion Show in Amman, where local designers showcased their eco-friendly fashion collections using recycled and used clothing, in line with contemporary international fashion standards.
Re-featured story from last year that we thought is worth mentioning again. As the fashion industry continues to be a major contributor to the world’s carbon footprint, the Jordanian “Mode Eco-responsible” fashion show was a breath of fresh air, combining fashion and sustainability in one event. The show, which took place during Environment and Climate Week, showcased the works of local designers who were challenged to use recycled and used clothing materials in their creations.
Despite the fashion industry’s contribution to the world’s carbon footprint, the Jordanian event proved that the two worlds, fashion and sustainability, can coexist. Designers Second base, Venus Orfali, Sarkis Sarkis, B bags by Louisa, and Lulu’s Box showcased their sustainable collections in the “Mode Eco-responsible” fashion show.
In addition to highlighting the impact of the clothing industry on the environment, the event also encouraged people to make more sustainable choices when it comes to their wardrobe. Laëtitia Barbe, the deputy director of the French Institute and one of the organizers of the event, encouraged attendees to make more responsible, ecological, durable, and sustainable choices to preserve the environment.
As the world becomes more aware of the importance of sustainability, it is refreshing to see events like the Jordanian Eco-Fashion Show promoting eco-consciousness in the fashion industry. The fashion industry must be part of the solution in the fight against climate change, and the event in Amman showed that sustainable fashion can be both stylish and environmentally-friendly.
