Online PR News – 26-October-2012 – October 25, 2012 – Santa Cruz, CA – At the October 12, 2012 Austin City Limits (ACL) Music Festival held in Austin, TX, creative musician Esperanza Spalding debuted the Ecoenstyle (www.ecoenstyle.com) Recycled Silk Party Dress. This playful party dress made from light vintage silk fabric had once been a sari in India. Spalding, known for charting her own course, is a young bassist / vocalist / composer and one of the biggest breakout stars of 2011 for not only jazz, but all genres of music. She received the 2011 GRAMMY® for Best New Artist – the first time a jazz musician won the award.
“I dress for the music, free from trends and am dedicated to wearing sustainable and eco-friendly one-of-a-kind dresses for my tour,” said Esperanza Spalding. “The recycled silk party dress from Ecoenstyle is beautiful, light and airy vintage silk fabric, which embodies its own vibrant hue and amazing pattern.”
“We offer fashionable products made from recycled and sustainable materials in an ethical way. We curate products based on style, sustainability, and affordability,” said Junko Imai, the founder of Ecoenstyle, an online eco-boutique for sustainable fashion. “We are pleased that Esperanza chose to wear our dress. She presented to a huge audience at ACL how beautiful and contemporary sustainable fashion is!”
An earmark of Ecoenstyle is that traditional, conventional textiles are replaced by sustainable materials like organically grown cotton, sustainably harvested cork, naturally anti-bacterial bamboo and versatile hemp, which grows without need of pesticides. Nearly every product Ecoenstyle carries has its own story; many of the materials have lived completely different lives before being transformed into new fabulously original products. Truck tarps that have traveled the highways and bi-ways of Great Britain, surplus candy wrappers left over from the candy packaging process, and bike inner tubes saved from the dumpster then cleaned and re-purposed have been turned into shoes, bags, accessories and Ecowear.
