2013 is off to a good start as some big names are addressing the climate revolution movement.

Her models had puffed lips and painted black eyes, as though they had been physically fighting the battle. As the collection went on, slogans calling for an end to the climate crisis were printed on white T-shirts. “Climate revolution is the only means toward a sound economy. When the general public massively switches on to this fact we will win,” she said in her fashion notes, which accompanied her winter 2014 menswear collection previewed Sunday.

An exclusive piece to her new collection is a special edition bag that was produced in Kenya through the United Nations International Trade Center Ethical Fashion Program. (http://www.shreveporttimes.com/viewart/20130114/LIVING/130114022/Westwood-pushes-climate-agenda-through-fashion-)

In other news, Bradley Cooper wore a tuxedo made of recycled materials to the 2013 Golden Global Awards. The Tom Ford tuxedo was made of ethical wool and was part of a Green Carpet Challenge (GCC), which asked top designers to create environmentally-friendly red-carpet looks. See pictures here (http://www.starpulse.com/news/index.php/2013/01/16/bradley_cooper_wore_an_ecofriendly_tux)

What a great way to incorporate ethical fashion into classic design!
