The article begins with that ubertrite line about how eco-responsible, fair-labor fashion doesn’t have to look like a hemp sack.

One of the standouts of the show was the Hypernova collection from Risto Bimbiloski, a former knitwear designer for Louis Vuitton, featuring silk dresses digitally printed with starry images from the Hubble telescope and sewn by women in his native Macedonia.
