The Nolcha Shows are thrilled to announce that Eco-Chick, the world’s first ethical fashion, beauty and travel site specifically for women, has joined as an Official Media Partner of the Media Fashion Lounge taking place September 14th 2016 at the Bryant Park Hotel.


The Nolcha Shows, now in its eighth consecutive year and held during New York Fashion Week, is one of the city’s leading platforms for global independent fashion designers with sponsors NeoGrid for Fashion, Citibank and JR Ewing and Garden of Flavor joining this season.

Eco-Chick was founded in October 2005 by eco fashion pioneer Starre Vartan with the simple mission of bringing sustainable living news and information to women in a comfortable and informative environment. Today, it has grown to become one of the most well-known sites covering eco fashion, natural beauty, ethical travel, organic food, eco art, high-profile interviews and low-impact home and entertaining. Eco-Chick’s writers are conscious, curious, and on a never-ending quest to help women make healthier, more informed buying decisions.


Lindsay E. Brown, Managing Director, Eco-Chick, comments: “Since 2005, Eco-Chick has championed ethical fashion and we’re acutely aware of the challenges emerging and independent brands face. Through our partnership with the Nolcha Shows, we’re able to help elevate these brands and showcase their cutting-edge, responsibly designed innovations.”


Media, bloggers and industry will attend the Nolcha Shows Fashion Media Lounge to preview the latest cutting edge collections from global independent accessory designers. Returning Nolcha Shows designers Michelle Pajak-Reynolds, EL VOYAGE and Taylord Blu will be joined by debuting brands Riley Versa, DELA EVA, Marshelly’s, James Carletons and Oysby. The East Africa Trade and Investment hub will also showcase APRELLEDUANY, I AM I, MAFI and Sammy Handmade.


Kerry Bannigan, Co-Founder, Nolcha Shows, shares; “It is an honor to be working with Eco-Chick as they set the precedent for sustainable living and continue to push the boundaries for consumers and brands to be informed. Their support of our Fashion Media Lounge is a very meaningful one for our ethical brands, we look forward to creating a long lasting partnership.”
