Henryetta, an Eco Fashion Label

Henryetta, my favourite eco fashion label

On a perfect Saturday morning, trawling the infamous stalls at Paddington Markets on a girls long weekend trip to Sydney, I met a wonderful young designer who I literally wanted to kneel and bow down to. Melissa Morgan, a self proclaimed Eco Designer and fellow Eco Warrior Princess was standing there, looking wonderfully natural like a bohemian queen and yet somewhat polished like only a Sydney sider can look. Michelle is the beauty as well as the brains behind my favourite new eco fashion label, Henryetta.

Perusing the racks of her small market stall, it was difficult not to fall head over heels for her clothing range. She had an eclectic mix  of designs from robin blue pencil skirts to comfortable dusty pink silk shirts and beautiful kaftans as well as wooden accessories. As a talented clothing designer, she had won herself a new customer – the colours and the drape of her clothes were a natural enticement to my sense of fashion. However, more than just her penchant for making great clothes, is Melissa’s penchant for making ethical and environmentally responsible great clothes. Her commitment to using sustainable fabrics such as hemp and silk shows that a designer can still produce fashionably stylish clothes without compromising their principles and values.

So if you are ever in Sydney, please make sure you stop in and visit her stall at Paddington Market. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!

The skirt by Henryetta that took my breath away!
