Clothing store Second Time Around hosted a sustainable fashion party over the weekend at their NoLita location. Second Time Around is an upscale consignment shop that carries new and almost new designer clothes at affordable prices, with this event focusing on eco-friendly fashion. Paper bag dress anyone? Check out some photos from the eco-friendly party!

Because of the growing urgency to our environment, fashion designers have been implementing eco-conscious methods of clothing production in their work. Buying second hand clothing at places like Second Time Around help reduce ones carbon footprint because it's not encouraging a new, manufactured product. Sustainable fashion is just one facet to sustainable design and will continue to be a trending topic in the fashion world.
