    Deborah Lindquist is one of the more famous ones, as she graduated from Parsons and dresses the stars in her eco-friendly designs.  Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney all showcased designs for Portland’s fashion week, using bamboo as well as organic and recycled materials.  On the main runways, however, most top designers haven’t picked up on the trend yet; but it’s only a matter of time.  Perhaps they will have to share the spotlight with the up-and-coming, smaller designers who are taking advantage of how easy it is to reuse, recycle and use environmentally friendly materials.  To actually find clothing, it’s best to look at websites like ecostiletto (http://www.ecostiletto.com/index.php?/site/) that compile ecofriendly clothing in one spot for you.
