Triumph has jumped onto the Green bandwagon and is lobbying for Ecof-fashion – where Conscience meets Fashion.

If you head down to unmentionables (aka lingerie) section of Tangs Orchard, Level 2… In the large(r) clearing just yonder of the Triumph counter, you’ll be pleasantly greeted by this display setup. (:

Using wood and dried bamboo as the stands, shelving and display counters, they’ve decked out their eco-friendly line, Ecochic.

Promising to balance fashion and fit while pledging to use only sustainable, natural materials, you can find out more about the concept behind Ecochic, view the collection,watch their commercial or even download promotional media here.

In addition, they’ve launched a micro-site especially for Ecochic with the purpose of having an online portal for fashion and eco-conscious women to meet and share their stories.

Not forgetting, also on the Ecochic calendar is a Green Workshop. Scheduled to take place at the Dressing Room @ Tangs Orchard, Level 2 on 29 August, Saturday. Registration starts at 2pm and the first 50 customers to make Ecochic purchases will get a goodie bag.

Doubt these cute hangers will be part of the goodie bag though.. hahas. (I’d want them!)

The Ecochic line bears the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 stamp, which according to dear ol’ Wiki, serves as a quality assurance tool for the manufacturer, testing for the absence of harmful substances like farm drugs, pesticides and excessively harmful dyes.

Instead, they’ve injected colour into the collection, using natural dyes to provide some variety and even went through the pains of weaving a striped fabric specially for this collection.

Who doesn’t love variety?!

Well, the kind people at Triump gave this camisole and shorts combo to try out, in the natural-dye striped fabric (that wasn’t on display, so I have NO clue how much it retails for…).

And although camis aren’t usually my thing, the fit and feel was very comfortable (I slept very soundly that night :) ). It didn’t feel like the straps were biting into me. The material had a lot of stretch and didn’t cling to my skin. And the fabric felt like a thicker (better quality) version of cotton jersey but with an additional subtle, but comfortable, textured feel.

And despite the chilly Saturday night rain and even with arms completely exposed, I was nice and warm. (:
