Tierra Del Forte, has started a new denim line called of Del Forte Denim. The distinguishing part about this line is that it uses 100% Organic Cotton. Organic Farming is a method of farming where no pesticides or any GMO seeds are used, the process is completely clean and safe for the environment unlike most modern farming techniques.
The line was shown at two recent fashion events: Walk the Talk and Eco-Petal. Walk the Talk, in June, was an eco-fashion gala in San Francisco that brought together social entrepreneurs, visionaries, and celebrities to encourage global leadership and a sustainable future for our planet. Eco-Petal, which recently wrapped up, was a 10-day fashion show and boutique event in Los Angeles for a small group of eco-fashion designers like Tierra. The main purpose of the event was to draw attention to the world of eco-fashion and to show people that caring about the environment doesn’t mean compromising your sense of style.
Tierra has been working in denim design since she graduated design school in 1999. The garments are sewn and finished in Los Angeles, a fashion-forward city that is a leader in anti-sweatshop legislation and enforcement, as well as being home to the most cutting-edge wash development facilities in the country.
Tierra says “I wanted to achieve my dream of creating my own premium denim line while protecting the environment and the farmers.”
