Sustainable Chic Designer On The Move: Carrie Perry wins prize at Amsterdam Fashion Week

16 Feb

Carrie Perry is someone to watch in the newest echelon of the fashion world that is cultivating a following for sustainability.  I’ve profiled her before  now doing it again because she keeps making headlines in the fashion press and she is an indie fashion designer.  She recently took home a prize of 15,000 at Amsterdam Fashion Week for her innovative designs that project confident, feminine tailoring and sustainable practice in their materials and manufacturing.  Perry’s idea of making clothes more convertible from season to season extending the garments wearability is a generous thought in the obsessive ideology  of over consumption of fashion for profit that takes an inevitable toll on the environment.  Perry has worked for Marc Jacobs and Norma Kamali before going independently to come up and above with a cause that transcends the fashion world in so many ways without sacrificing beauty or the planet.
