    An organic fete for enlightened folk?

    It's the "ingredients list" for this past week's Earth Pledge FutureFashion show here in NYC. All sustainable fibers and textiles utilized by some of the world's top fashion designers.

    The show's designs are on view in the windows of Barneys New York on Madison Avenue until February 21st.

    Organic food used to be somewhat elite, too, but who knows - corn-based PLA or sasawashi might soon be coming to a grocer near you.
