With all the efforts of change and awareness being made these days, many of us understand that doing your part to help Mother Earth is more imperative than ever. Foundations and fund raising for everything from saving the whales to helping our fellow men have been popping up in every form, including fashion! Introducing: EDUN, a line of contemporary and fashion forward pieces that are comfortable, versatile and stylish and made of organic materials like silks and cotton. The simple and clean lines of this industrial-chic label skim the body with sumptuous knits and fabrics and are presented in a classically neutral color palette of blacks, whites, greys and creams. The best thing about EDUN is that not only do they offer a variety of beautiful dresses, tops, tees and outerwear, they use their publicity and proceeds to bring more awareness to the current plight and hardships that many African countries are facing, as well as educating us on how rich a land Africa truly is. While EDUN garments definitely have an air of earthiness like many ethical fashion lines, it is a brand that has a truly contemporary design aesthetic and believes that the popularity of high fashion and giving something good back to our world are two things that easily go hand-in-hand.

Before you start questioning my knack for keeping up with the latest styles and trends, you'll need to re-think your ideas on tie-dye. While tie-dye used to conjure up images of brightly colored bursts on white tees (like the kind you made at the after-school program in elementary school) and is generally linked to hippie attire and reserved for those still stuck in the 60's and 70's (in both mindset and style), tie-dye as of late has gotten a modern make-over. Using an edgier or more wearable color palette, as well as differing patterns and shapes, modern day tie-dye is now more chic and stylish than tacky and dated. Whether it's as a water-color like print on a fluid tank, or as a unique and trendy way to add interest and texture to a hot pair of jeans or leggings, there's no denying that tie-dye is popping up everywhere ... and it's staying! The new, made-over tie-dye designs are youthful, versatile and totally fashionable and soon, over-sized rainbow tie-dye shirts will just be a thing of fashion-faux-pas nightmares. Want to take a look at the new and improved tie-dye and incorporate it into your closet? Click on the slideshow to see some of my favorite modern tie-dye pieces!
