Toggery by Kate D’Arcy: Organic Clothes from Philadelphia Designer

The desire to Toggery - Sustainable clothing by Kate D'Arcybe green and trendy can cause a dilemma for today’s modern Green Girls:  Can you have both?  Thrift store shopping can get monotonous – What if there was a local sustainable, clothing line here in Philadelphia? Kate D’Arcy’s line, TOGGERY, is one answer for Philly’s green & fashion-savvy young women.

Toggery pieces aren’t only gorgeous, but perfect with sustainability in mind: each piece is designed for women who want to blend social and economic consciousness with trendy clothes.  Each clothing in Toggery’s collection is composed of 100% organic and sustainable fabrics like cotton, bamboo and modal.  The colorful clothes are created with low impact dyes that use less energy, less chemicals, and produce less waste than natural or vegetable dyes – reducing your overall fashion carbon footprint.  The result? You’ll feel sexy in Kate’s modern designs and great about your environmental impact!

Forget the guilt of purchasing clothes that were made overseas. Another bonus of purchasing this clothesline is you’ll be supporting a local business, since D’Arcy is from the Philly area. Almost all aspects that go into the creation of the line are local – from the designer, to a PA-based manufacturer, and all materials used in the clothes are from the US!

Their versatile fall collection has anything from fashion tees & tunics, basic tees, cute shirt dresses, leggings, cropped jackets, and tanks suitable for going out.  With colors ranging from Hunter green to merlot, royal purple and classic whites/blacks, you can easily find something to fit your style.

Excited to check out the fashions?  You can find Toggery in Philly boutiques Sevilla Smith & Arcadia.  As Kate says, “We all have to do our part, why not look fabulous while you do it!”

Readers, have you given D’Arcy’s collection a try? What’s your style?
