This flowy frock just screams “spring.” In Style Magazine says: Talk about flower power. This botanical frock from Svilu, a New York-based, sustainable brand launched last spring by Britt Cosgrove and Marina Polo (alumni of the Parsons School of Design and Central Saint Martins, respectively), is as eco-conscious as they come. The custom-designed floral pattern, which the design duo based off floral prints from the 18th and 19th centuries, is digitally printed on silk, a technique that conserves more water and electricity than traditional screen-printing and generates minimal waste to boot. “It saves about 60 percent more water and 30 percent more electricity,” says Cosgrove.
