Coffee Tea?! My Coffee Secret

NCDT (National Coffee Data Trends) have reported that as much as 67% of Americans drink coffee on a daily basis.  That amount increases to 75% when determining the amount of adults who drink coffee on a weekly basis.  One lesser know fact is that the global coffee market is expected to reach 182 billion by the year 2030.  What is it about that little dark bean, available in so many varieties, that cause people to be unable to go about their daily lives without it?  It must be the flavor as some people swear by coffees made in various countries.  If it's not Columbian or Jamaican coffee, some will not even touch the mug.  Then there are the coffee chain fan clubs who must have their daily Starbucks or Tim Horton's signature espresso in the morning.  Let's be real, the taste of coffee isn't all it's cracked up to be, especially when dark.  Quite possibly, it may be the alertness that coffee provides after consumption which have some people hooked.   The alertness and

Moschino Has the Most Socially Responsible Fashion Show to Date

Jeremy scott, creative director at Moschino, produced a very socially responsible show at SS21 fashion week. he came up with a brilliant idea to showcase a life-like show using marionette puppets instead of live models. It's wonderful that Jeremy took the socially responsible route by refraining from having people attend a live show, which would have put people at risk for spreading or receiving the virus. Seated in the audience were marionnette versions of fashion heads, Anna Wintour, Edward Enningul, Nina Garcia, and Vanessa Friedman. Even Mr. Scott himself had a puppet. The Moschino SS2021 show went on without a real live person modeling the clothes and yet it still managed to be one of the most flawless and creative shows of the century! The film of the show premiered in Times Square, NYC. Jeremy elaborated on how he came up with the idea to use marionettes: "My mantra has been from the very beginning, ‘My body may be in quarantine, but my mind isn’t.’ I’m a creative p

Two High Fashion Designers Creating in the House of Conscious

Many of you may be familiar with the ‘not so pretty’ side of fashion. The site was originally created to be a voice for the conscious side of fashion and beauty. Promoting, showcasing and discussing all aspects of fashion ---from the business, to the marketing to the creating, has always been a primary motive of the Green News Guide. The fashion industry is ever evolving as designer houses become more conscious in their practices and methods for production. We desire to continue to see houses and companies embrace clean beauty and fashion. As great as the fashion industry may currently be, we think that it could reach an even greater plateau as sustainable and environmentally friendly practices are adopted and put into focus in the grand scheme of designing. Of course, many of our favorite designers may be unaware of certain environmental and conscious issues surrounding the world of fashion. However, we do believe that the fashion industry is moving towards a more conscious ro

New York Fashion Week: Kate Spade's Nature Inspired Collection

New York Fashion Week has come and gone just as quickly as it came! The runways were fragranced with the scent of blissful spring air as models sashayed down the runways. The top three collections from Mercedes Benz Fashion week Spring & Summer 2015 would have to be Naeem Khan, Oscar de la Renta and the lovely Dennis Basso. Oscar de la Renta painted such a beautiful picture of a dreamy, picture perfect spring day. With the romantic floral prints amidst green backdrops, you'd think you were laying in a bed of thick, fresh cut grass sniffing a row of tulips, daisies and alpine flowers. How, oh how, does Mr. de la Renta do it?! Naeem Khan's designs were gracious and bold all at the same time. Silky bow ties juxtaposed with long, sheer gowns provided all the glitz needed to feed the glamorous woman's heart. At Dennis Basso, we learn the rules of how to wear a bombshell faux fur in the spring time. With all that said, we have to give the Green Award for fashion to Kate
