Chanel Fashion Show Sports Wind Turbines, Solar Panels

 
More and more fashion designers are serious about showcasing renewable technologies and sustainable practices, but it’s especially nice to see fashion powerhouses, like Chanel, embrace green concepts.

The 2013 Chanel runway show in Paris Fashion Week included a catwalk that looked like it was made from solar panels and and 13 huge wind turbines (see pictures above). The clothes even had elements of renewable energy, with a turbine graphic on a sweater and a dress that looked to have tiny solar panels on it, according to Greenster.

Chanel Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld may be controversial in his use of furs, but we’re happy to see he’s got his head in the game on renewables.
