Linda Loudermilk’s clothing doesn’t scream eco or sustainable, and I love that. Clothes should be beautiful first and foremost. Being conscientious doesn’t have to mean looking blah. I’m pretty obsessed with her asymmetric hems and dark use of prints. Her clothes have a moodiness to them that spells urban, upscale chic. With sheer panels and daring necklines, this line is not for the fashionably faint at heart. Be prepared for red carpet worthy looks that will help you stand out from the pack, more than just aesthetically.
Her clothing is bold. It’s strong. It’s attention-grabbing. And, it’s eco-conscious. Linda Loudermilk was showing her clothes on Paris runways when she made the drastic decision to change the purpose behind her clothing. She pioneered luxury eco clothing by using bamboo, seaweed and corn in the makings of her fabric. She began using excess fabric from her European sources. The result of this new mindset is a series of collections that appeal to true fashionistas.
I am, in some ways, a true New Yorker. I love dark, brooding colors and I love fashion looks that are sexy but a bit androgynous. Look no further if you’re on the same page. Linda Loudermilk has changed the face of eco and we’re all a little better because of it.
