|The Zooey Dress for Spring 2011|
The Mountains of the Moon team spends a lot of time researching new eco-conscious fabrics and manufacturing processes, and we're always challenging ourselves to find innovative ways to create collections that are truly environmentally friendly without sacrificing style. Although the type of materials used in a garment and where the garment is produced (local = crucial) are important concepts to eco-fashion, so is the concept of slow fashion. Rather than producing clothing based on short-lived trends from cheap materials, we try to focus on timeless, well-made designs that are made in small batches, will last for years, and will surpass short-lived trends.

It's been an exciting experience to brainstorm new ways to push the envelope of sustainable fashion design, and I'm really looking forward to seeing how things go this season. If you're interested in seeing more of our designs or being a part of the pre-ordering process, you can check out Mountains of the Moon's website.
