Fashion with zero environmental impact? It is possible, as demonstrated by designer Mara Hoffman. When it comes to the creative side of her new collections, her awareness and sense of responsibility steer her choices towards innovative materials like Tencel, a sustainable alternative to silk, and Refibra, jersey produced using scraps of leftover cotton from production, or towards the reintroduction of hemp, which requires fewer pesticides and water than cotton. An alternative exists; you just need to make it your own.
