This fall, the Green Youth Movement took the green-repping reigns by producing LA Fashion Weekend's "The Green Initiative Humanitarian Fashion Show" held at The Gallery Los Angeles. The event with filled with an eclectic and anxious crowd of bloggers, designers, scenesters, and fashionistas who all happily embraced the collections of ethical designers Jonano, Keokojay, Kristinit, and Emily Factor.

The runway show commenced with a friendly welcome by The Gallery's own Mikey Koffman, followed an inspiring speech highlighting the importance of sustainability for future generations by 16-year old GYM president, Chloe Mills.

Jonano represented a softer side of organics with their simple, yet elegantly romantic pieces.

Keokojay romped the runway with a more fun and funky boheme feel - comfortably light and beautiful.

Kristinit's collection consisted of beautifully feminine cuts and fabrics, breezy pastels, intricate pattern meshing and sex-kitten sophisticated lace.   

Emily Factor's Collection was like taking a trip into a technicolor, flowery, flowing wonderland. One could say they felt like Alice lying in the daisies as the collection exuded a very youthful and free feeling.
