As NY Fashion Week kicks off, (yes, Luis Valenzuela’s gown, above, is made of recycled footballs), we turn the spotlight on the ten designers of ecofashion who’ll be strutting their stuff at The GreenShows. Aptly enough, this year’s venue of choice is in Chelsea, at the newly renovated Metropolitan Suite, retrofitted with eco-friendly flooring and LED lighting, located on the second floor of the Metropolitan Pavilion.  We’ll be there and we can’t wait to bring you the highlights.

In order of appearance, beginning Sunday September 12:
