Cleanliness seems to be a major point for Nellie Partow. Cleanliness not only in cut and silhouette but also in the Earth. Partow is one of many designers using and looking for various sustainable ways to produce high-quality fashions. In her Fall 2019 Collection, she continues on in this mission. For her part, it’s about creating illusions to materials normally produced through harmful means on fabrics that are environment-friendly and timeless. Take for example the shimmering gray plaid cut into pantsuits and a column dress. One would think this was a sort of laminated wool, but in fact, it’s just linen manipulated in a way to produce the glimmering effects. Design-wise, she also touched upon another sustainable method—practicality. These clothes, from the day suits and oversized outerwear to the asymmetric cocktail dresses and luscious cashmere pieces, are all items one can wear multiple times. It adds to the underlying critique that fashion is one of the more wasteful industries in the world and this has to change. Fortunately, this line helps a bit. Who wouldn’t want to wear all these clothes every now and again?
