‘Discover’, the new collection, is 100 per cent eco-oriented. Out of the 30 outfits of the collection, 15 are made with recycled fabrics and 15 also contain Tencel denim, high-quality fibres created by Lenzing Group, and derived from sustainable wood sources – natural forests and sustainably managed tree farms. Born from nature with a durable yet silky-soft texture, fabrics made with Tencel denim provide an elegant look with a luxurious touch, while being perfectly tailored to a sustainable lifestyle, Lenzing said in a press release.
The Discover collection presents an elegant, modern cowboy-inspired interpretation for the contemporary women, with a strong emotional charge deriving from Latin heritage. Each look is unique: a wise combination of fabrics lives alongside appealing ruffle details, in both tight clothes and oversize garments. Denim shorts, blouses, with asymmetrical details, shirt dresses – every part of the collection expresses the true essence of the Juan Carlos Gordillo’s woman.
“Tencel denim was the right choice for me because it proves that eco-fashion doesn’t need to compromise on its look and style: the outfits will look spectacular in the fashion show and the most important thing is that, in this way, I have the guarantee that I am working with a fabric that was made with a process friendly to the environment,” Juan Carlos Gordillo said.
“It was an honour to support Juan Carlos Gordillo with fabrics made with our Tencel denim fibres, and the Vienna Fashion Week is definitely the perfect stage to unveil our collaboration, since our company is based in Austria. The demand for responsibility in fashion is a fact and it’s amazing to see how creative talents like Juan Carlos Gordillo are taking action towards such a change of mind-set,” Tricia Carey, director of global business development for denim at Lenzing Group said.
