John Galliano Returns: John Galliano (who's sporting a new grunge look) got a new gig at Parsons, teaching a master class on the "challenges and complications of leading a design house."

If you've been paying attention to the fashion industry the past few years, you know that sustainable design is more important than ever. Our clothing consumption has reached an all time high, and in response, advocates for mindful, more eco-friendly design are screaming their message louder than ever. And it seems the fashion industry is finally listening: The CFDA recently created the first-ever sustainability committee , Levi's and Zara have committed to going toxic-free, and H&M has unveiled a series of ambitious sustainable design projects. The growing trend towards sustainable and ethically designed clothing is not only helping to create a greener planet--it's created a whole new job market, one where having an education in sustainable design may give you a considerable edge in the industry. Here are the best sustainable design programs out there.
You don't have to start an organic cotton farm in your backyard to do your part in making fashion more sustainable. In honor of Earth Day, we put together an illustrated guide to making your home—and life!--a little more green. With minimal tools and money spent, these crafty eco-friendly solutions are easy to assemble, pretty to look at, and kind to Mama Earth.

Just in time for Earth Day on Sunday, the fashion crowd went crunchy (well, as much as they could) last night at the charity concept store Treasure & Bond in Soho when Rogan Gregory and Scott MacKinlay Hahn of eco-fashion line Loomstate took over to debut their Loomstate 321 line. This capsule line of reversible and versatile multi-colored tees, tanks and dresses fashioned from one knit, man-made fabric Tencil will appeal to the environmentally conscious, frugal and laundry-challenged alike. One of the light, mega-layered and color-blocked dresses that Rogan Gregory showed us can be worn in eight different ways. Design partners Gregory and Hahn live and breathe by their eco-conscious beliefs--incorporating them not just in their designs but also in their daily lifestyles. “To reduce my fossil fuel footprint, I ride my bike every day and I’m as healthy as I was 20 years ago,” Gregory explained to us. “Sometimes, it’s after midnight and I’ve drank like three beers. It’s kind of like, ‘Ah, I don’t want to get on the bike.’ But you get on the bike and you can feel good about it for so many different reasons.” Wait, what?
Earth Day is all about guilt, so here are some quick statistics for you: the average American uses 70 gallons of water in a 10-minute shower, but 34% of people polled think that a 10-minute shower only wastes 10 gallons of water. A bit of a disconnect there. (And in case you were wondering, 70 gallons is 1,120 eight ounce bottles of water.) The Body Shop, one of the original eco-conscious brands, has issued the “Earth Lovers Three-Minute Shower Challenge” just in time for Earth Day. Yes, they want you to commit to taking three-minute showers. To help time yourself, the company suggests playing a three-minute song and trying to finish by the end. Or, you could always count to 180 slowly. Could you do this?
