MothLove eco-designer Gretchen Jones is among good company with fellow Porlander Seth Aaron Henderson — both of whom have achieved major accolades on Lifetime network’s Project Runway.
While Henderson is basking in the sun of his impending solar-enhanced collection, Jones is enjoying her own time in the spotlight, crafting distinctively Bohemian-style duds using “organic cottons, silk, bamboo and soy blends, with low impact & natural dye processes”.
What’s really nice about her success is that it’s enabling sustainable fashion to enter mainstream consciousness, even though the 28 year old says that her intent on becoming a part of Project Runway actually “wasn’t to spread the gospel of sustainability”.
She feels that fashion designers who use planet-friendly materials contribute just as much to a greener industry as those who embrace business practices such as “small scale production and producing locally”.
Here she is during the initial casting session with Gunn, Henderson and Zoe Glassner while giving them the rundown of her eco-versatility and easy-breezy style. We wish her the best in this nail-biting competition…may the greenie reign supreme
