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 and Hayden Harlow (www.HaydenHarlow.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.  

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