Stella McCartney's 2014 Green Carpet Collection At London Fashion Week

Environmentalist Stella McCartney was center stage this week as she launched her Green Carpet Collection at the Royal Institution of Great Britain in Mayfair. Co-hosted by BFC chairman Natalie Massenet, Anna Wintour and GCC founder Livia Firth — who launched last year’s event — the evening gave McCartney the chance to unveil four ball gowns made of left-over fabric from McCartney’s studio; a range of shoes and accessories made from sustainably recycled materials; and  a collection created from a brand-new organic cady that McCartney has developed.

Vogue writes:

“This is a fabric that I am definitely going to incorporate into my own collection,” she told us at the event. “I’ve been coming away from fittings over the last couple of weeks thinking ‘Wow’ - these are all recycled materials. In the fashion industry they burn all these thousands of metres of fabrics, which to me is crazy, so I’m recycling it.”

Stella McCartney has a long history of walking her talk on the subject of sustainability. The Fashion Globe writes that all Stella McCartney stores, offices and studios in the UK are powered by wind energy. 45% of McCartney’s total operations are run on 100% renewable energy.

Jourdan Dunn Consumes Everything, Lensed By Benjamin Lennox For Garage #7 Fall/Winter 2014

Garage Magazine #7 Fall/Winter 2014 makes an undeniably critical statement about global consumption trends, as Anders Solvsten makes a major style statement about the prevalence of pop brands in fashion. Model Jourdan Dunn is lensed by Benjamin Lennox in this blatantly tacky style statement.

Global think tank Trendwatching has seven key trends for 2014. Leading the list is GUILT-FREE STATUS.

Growing numbers of consumers can no longer escape an awareness of the damage done by their consumption: to the planet, society, or themselves. But a mixture of indulgence, addiction and conditioning mean that most can’t substantially change their consumption habits. The result? A never-ending guilt spiral.

The success of Tesla Model S is a great example GUILT-FREE STATUS. especially now that it has opened up technology patents to competitors with hopes of widely expanding the market for electric cars by making them more affordable. Tesla recently announced plans to create 6400 new jobs in Nevada, building an electric battery plant to supply electric car technology to mass market car makers.

Trendwatching also cites high status, chic or fashionable products that are visibly sustainable, ethical and/or healthy as products that deliver GUILT-FREE STATUS. Nudie rugs,a range of limited edition rugs created from woven strips of second-hand or donated denim from the Swedish denim brand’s own jeans, get a call out.

Also cited is US based Liberty United jewelry created from decommissioned guns and bullets. Liberty United aims to help take firearms off the streets, working with local governments to source guns no longer needed for evidence or collected in buy-back programs. These firearms “are then recycled into jewelry by established designers, with each piece including the serial number of the gun used to make it. Prices range from USD 85 to 695 and a portion of the proceeds goes to nonprofits working to reduce gun crime.”

Also important in the GUILT-FREE STATUS trend is an authentic storyline that is verifiable and helps customers stay connected to the brand’s mission. Read on for more TrendWatching key trends for 2014.

Madagascar's Lemur Lady Dr. Patricia Wright Fights Their Extinction

Kevin Rice As Peter Beard, Lensed By Blair Getz Mezibov For Out Magazine

Madagascar: The Eighth Continent

When one thinks of Madagascar, lemurs (one is pictured above with model Kevin Rice) come to mind immediately. These often but not exclusively nocturnal, insectivorous primates are recognized by their small body, a long nose and intense, very large eyes.

It is only because of the island’s isolation, that lemurs remain alive in Madagascar, the only place they inhabit on earth. “It’s believed that around 160 million years ago, Madagascar was attached to the African mainland as part of the super continent Gondwanaland (formed of Africa, South America, Australia, Antarctica, India and Madagascar,” writes WildMadagascar.org.

According to Russell Mittermeier in ‘The Eighth Continent’, although Madagascar “is only one of 92 countries with wild primate populations, it is alone responsible for 21 percent (14 of 65) of all primate genera and 36 percent (five of 14) of all primate families, making it the single highest priority” for primate conservation. “Madagascar is so important for primates that primatologists divide the world into four major regions: the whole of South and Central America, all of southern and southeast Asia, mainland Africa, and Madagascar, which ranks as a full-fledged region all by itself.”

One of the World’s Most Endangered Primates

Because of its island isolation, most of its plant and animal species on Madagascar are found nowhere else in the world. The island has existed as a hotbed of biodiversity, a subject I wrote about previously.

Today, 79 percent of Madagascar’s original rain forest habitat has already been cleared by humans, leaving the future of nature’s laboratory in grave danger. This bleak reality includes the future of lemurs.

In 2012, the Union for the Conservation of Nature described 91 percent of the 103 known species and subspecies of lemurs as threatened with extinction; making it one of the highest levels of threat ever recorded for a group of mammals.

How smart is a Lemur? CNN

Lemur Lady Dr. Patricia Wright

Weeks ago IMAX movie viewers were treated to ‘Island of Lemurs: Madagascar’, a spectacular journey into this magnificent country narrated by Morgan Freeman. Far more than a travelogue, the documentary follows Dr. Patricia Wright’s mission to help lemurs. Dr. Wright is considered to be one of the world’s foremost experts on lemurs, based on her work in Ranomafana National Park, Madagascar, an integrated conservation and development project that she spear-headed in 1991.

An August 2014 New York Times article profiled Dr. Wright and her fight to prevent what she calls a “lemur holocaust.”

The Park protects 43,500 hectares of forest, including rain forests, and 12 lemur species. In addition, Wright is the founder of the Centre ValBio Research Station located on the edge of the Park. Centre ValBio, which is partially funded by the National Science Foundation, is a pivotal hub for researching rainforest biodiversity  and conservation and for conducting outreach to the community and policy makers.

Artist Ap Verheggen's Brilliant Art Of Climate Change Solutions

Verheggen’s SunGlacier 1Dutch filmmaker, designerr and sculptor Ap Verheggen has always run with the fashionable set, writes the New York Times. His 20 year career is global and commercial, too.  The lobby of Royal Dutch Shell’s headquarters near The Hague plays host the giant bronze ‘Terra Incognita’.

A decade ago, the artist developed a keen passion for the problems of climate change. “People can’t understand nature anymore,” Verheggen said.  “I see it as my mission as an artist to tell people what is happening.”

Verheggen’s Iceberg RidersIceberg Riders, the big melt

In 2009, the artist installed two giant sculptures called Iceberg Riders. Equipped with a GPS satellite tracking tag and installed on an iceberg in Uummannaq, Greenland, the plan was that the arty iceberg would float for years in the northern seas. The result would be a digital map for the artist and those studying climate change. Failure came quickly when the iceberg disintegrated after only four months, confirming in Verheggen’s mind the dire nature of climate change.
