5 Minutes With Eco-Friendly Designer John Patrick

A real pioneer in sustainability, designer @organicbyjohnpatrick has been producing high-quality, tailored pieces since 2003 (he was one of the first to work directly with organic farm collectives in Peru). And while his line is consistently low-key and wearable, major players in the fashion world have taken notice. In 2008, he was selected as one of the finalists for the 2008 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award!
