Eco-Friendly Wedding Dresses take a Turn for the Chic!

About Bride Chic



I've seen quite a few changes in styles boasting eco-fibers in the last few years, both in bridal and main line fashion. Once upon a time, say twenty years back, green-friendly fabrics looked pretty raw, loosely woven and just a few grades above burlap. Fast forward to 2011 and fiber developers as well as suppliers are getting the message- brides want eco-friendly alternatives but don't necessarily want that tattered, Issey Miyake look anymore.

Treatments have been so perfected, you'd be hard pressed these days to tell a sustainable fiber from an unsustainable one. Brides are fortunate if they're pondering green but still want to look like a blushing bride in a satin or taffeta wedding dress. Just take a look at these gowns by designer Patty Nayel of Pure Magnolia. This Canadian creates sustainable bridal gowns for eco-minded brides while keeping them looking and feeling haute chic (she lines the gowns in soft fabrics like silk-cotton) and very much like brides on their wedding day... Which eco-chic wedding dress do you love? Post a comment below to share your stylish thoughts!
