So apparently Seattle has this reputation for being eco-friendly. Who knew? Now in addition to driving hybrids and recycling, reducing, and reusing like its our job, we can wear bamboo and be deemed fashionable. Sweet. And now the first-ever Green Fashion Week wants to celebrate just that with five days of events featuring top-name designers, in what the organizers call the countrys most environmentally aware city. Ah, but green fashion has a price, and it aint cheap. Want the VIP treatment? Eight hundred and fifty dollars gets you into a private shopping event at a local boutique, a trunk show, a book release party, and the Style Suite at El Gaucho, along with front-row tickets to the runway show. However, for just $50 you can still buy a ticket to the Oct. 6 show, where sustainable fashion designers like Anna Cohen, Lara Miller, and Lizzie Parker will be showing off their green threads.
