secret garden

An invite popped up in my inbox to check out the private launch party of the H&M The Garden Collection. What's so special about this collection is that all the clothing is made from sustainable resources. From the H&M press release:
Romantic, exotic, glamorous or abstract: this spring’s floral patterns provide an injection of creativity and a love of fashion into your wardrobe. The floral looks are inspired by chlorophyll-green gardens, sun drenched landscapes and even 70s hippie chic flower-power. The romantic garden collection is made using organic and recycled materials. All the garments have been produced using sustainable materials or using recycled PET bottles or textile waste.
And they look so pretty, too!

The red floral bold shouldered bolero jacket is so Valentino!
The super pale peach dress with the ruffled shoulders was really cute, but you would need to tie your hair back to really see the details on the shoulder. Also came in black (which sold out pretty quick!)
Some of the organic appies they were serving. These were grated cheese lollipops with a sweet filling in the center. Very delicious, and probably easy to make at home!
The line-up to the changing room was getting longer by the minute.
