Vaute Couture's first ready-to-wear collection was not only the first all-vegan line, it included only eco-friendly fabrics. Designer Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart has been creating gorgeous outerwear for years, but this show included men's and women's coats, pants, blouses, skirts, heck, even a pair of overalls. The show was co-sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States, PETA and the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine.

Suzanne Rae's clean and modern silhouettes are made in NYC's garment district from a combination of sustainable and conventional materials. This fall's collection included pieces influence by the "intricately designed and yet modest clothing of the missionary monks, priests, and nuns. Inspired by the silhouettes and linear geometry of their robes, Suzanne has designed a collection free from extravagance, minimalist in aesthetic, and humble by nature.” The designer's collaboration with knitwear designer Lindsay Degen, was a zero-waste endeavor.
