The collection is about merging the creative process behind cooking and designing into one. The fabrics are dyed using rice and lentils to leave behind imprints of the grains on the fabric. Another dying technique I use is to fold the fabric the same way I fold pastry for baklava.” — Mina Stone on her autumn/winter 2011 collection (via DailyCandy)

I don’t know why I think of fashion and food with the same thoughts. Anytime anyone asks me “why eco-fashion?” my answer always starts off with “well, I’m a vegetarian....” So it always delights me to see designers talk about their fashion in food terms! Brooklyn-based designer, Mina Stone, a Pratt graduate who interned for a spell with Lutz & Patmos, channels her Greek heritage to give us an AW11 collection of drapey classics appealing to the (eco)-goddess in each of us. This Leda cape, in charcoal Italian boucle, with a snap front closure. is fully lined in black silk. One size. Face – 65% wool / 35% nylon. Lining – 100% silk.  $880 USD from Anaise.com

This Nemva Dress has a fun modern silhouette that hints at vintage sci-fi costumes. This dress has a high collar with back neck zipper closure, spherical skirt, u-shape side slits, and fits close to the body through the shoulders & back. 100% wool jersey. Made in USA. $465 USD from FrancesMay.com
