Leila Hafzi Eco Couture collection

Making a Difference; Leila Hafzi fashion

Norwegian designer  Leila Hafzi is taking eco couture to a new level with her spectacular collection of  diaphanous evening wear.

As a designer dedicated to making a difference she presented her first collection in 1997, introducing the idea of eco and ethical trade to the Norwegian high-end fashion industry. Eleven years later her goal remains unchanged; to champion eco and ethical trade in the fashion industry on a global basis, and continue developing a 100 percent environmentally-friendly production cycle.

Ethical from the start Leila Hafzi continues to build her expertise on fair trade and eco practices. Her design and production company, Nepal Productions DA, is a member of The Ethical Trading Initiative in Norway.

Presenting a collection drawing inspiration from the global topic of environmental changes; she is also starting a cooperative effort with the Norwegian Peace Corps and Nepal. Several company employees will be working in Katmandu for one year with clothing production, and two of the most skilled tailors from Katmandu will work in Norwegian company facilities.

Her collections are a testament to the ‘ no compromise’ philosophy of eco design…where  eco + style can be married successfully without one element compromising the other. A truly iconic collection……
