NYFW: Colovos- A collection with a conscience


As sustainability becomes a top focus for WGSN, we’re always looking to see which designers are setting the precedent- and the Colovos show at New York Fashion Week proved that sustainable fashion is more wearable than ever.

Called out as one of our Brands to Watch this season, fashion-duo Nicole and Micheal Colovos presented a collection for Fall which was as ethical as it was elegant.


We can’t ignore what’s happening in the world,” Nicole said, who noted their move to faux fur, leather-free-leather and upcycled plastic waste among their offering of sustainable materials.  Of note was their range of utility-esque outerwear, paired with fluro-orange pants which verged on the right side of grown-up-gorpcore. Tailoring boasted the same workwear-vibe, offered in raw denims or a sheen woven material – innovated using plastic waste sourced from the ocean. – Anna Ross
