The eco fashion industry is always-evolving and always-innovative in its approach to harmonizing beauty and the environment. Fashion-conscious and sustainable-minded designers and retailers are in high demand; Ottawa is no exception. Here at EcoEquitable we are helping women in our community learn the skills they need to contribute to the budding eco fashion industry, blending our love for the environment, support for entrepreneurship and desire to help new Canadians find meaningful employment in Canada.

In 2015 EcoEquitable launched the first annual Metamorphosis eco fashion event celebrating the innovative creations of 20 Ottawa eco fashion designers. This year Metamorphosis is returning with the hopes of increasing the visibility of the growing movement of creative designers committed to sustainability and innovative entrepreneurialism in Ottawa. Whether you are starting, growing or building your eco fashion business we want to hear from you.

This unique event offers a space for local designers and entrepreneurs to showcase and sell their designs, all the while accessing small business support and development opportunities through EcoEquitable.
