Bamboo designs can open doors for fashion designers. Examining the fashion supply chain gives designers a new array of fibers from organic cotton to sustainable silk and even soy!

Even Levi's is playing in the organic cotton sandbox and they're bringing natural indigo dyes, non-galvanized metals and coconut.

"Summer Rayne Oakes' fashions are definitely "not your grandmother's jeans!" says consultant and model, sustainability consultant and hard core scientist with a BS in Natural Resources, Entomylogy and Geographic Information Systems, Summer Rayne Oakes, a passionate fashion advocate that is leading the way to greener, more sustainable fashion supply chains.

Her work in researching sewer sludge led this leggy beauty to discovering the impact textile dyes had on the environment. When she was discovered by a fashion photographer, she turned her passion for environmental sustainability into a passionate gaze at the textile and fashion industry. Now she promotes alternative fabrics like bamboo and organic cotton. She starts by modeling a designer's line, and edges her way to the board room where she can consult with them about their supply chain and their marketing. Green's in fashion, you know!

She writes for Lucire, a fashion magazine that in 2003, when Lucire was still a website, was named the first fashion industry partner of the United Nations Environment Programme.

Follow Summer Rayne Oakes' many threads of creative, sustainable passion through her blog, her website, her writings and media appearances. Summer Rayne Oakes is a bright face to our future.
