Silk Taffeta

Eco-Couture

Refined.  Glamorous.  Green.

"I want my collection to be clothes that women will want to wear and know that they're manufactured in a way that is less harmful to the planet should follow as an added bonus.  Green should extend beyond the idea of simply recycling or refashioning a garment into something new...all aspects of its creation should be considered.  Finally, and most importantly, the cut, fit and construction should all contribute to clothes that are comfortable and timeless - while focusing on beautifying and complimenting  their owners."  ~ Elizabeth

From concept to runway, minimizing our impact on the environment is a consideration for all aspects of our company.  We source materials that are sustainable for all our collections.  From natural fibers -hand woven silks and sustainable cottons, to  PET satin taffeta linings made from recycled plastic bottles - we fashion them into clothing that is fashion forward and feminine.  We carefully select only fabric manufacturers that employ fair-trade labor and use vegetable dyes for our colored and imported fabrics and embellishments. 

Our manufacturing and design is focused on achieving a "ZERO waste" factor and cuttings and remnants are refashioned into handmade flowers and accents.  All dresses are hand cut & hand finished employing local labor.  Our office & manufacturing spaces extend the "ZERO waste" philosophy to our business operations as well.  We do not offer printed catalogues, minimize the use of paper & printing, and share space for energy efficiency.  We have been COMPLETELY "off-the grid" since summer 2011 using 100% wind power for our offices and production.

Elizabeth generously supports several charities with proceeds from the sales of EVERY dress in her collection.  A portion of all profits from the Elizabeth St John, Hayden Harlow (www.HaydenHarlow.com) , Felix Ties (www.FelixTies.com) and Element Bags (www.ElementBags.com) are dedicated to philanthropic support.  Some of the charities she supports include wildlife conservation efforts around the world and social & economic empowerment initiatives for disadvantaged women & communities in areas of extreme poverty and conflict.  Currently her areas of focus are IUCN Red Listed wildlife;  tropical forest conservation; and vocational training schools for women in Haiti & Afghanistan. 

Elizabeth is an Advisory Board member of several charities and served as the President for the Universal Strategic Services Foundation in Washington, DC.
