Reduce Recycle Renew!
Designer Anne Salvatore Epstein founded Beau Soleil (named after her favorite oyster) to offer consumer’s environmentally healthy clothing choices without sacrificing fashion. Beau Soleil’s focus is on sustainability, fair trade and labor, and organic raw materials. Epstein’s eco-friendly luxurious fashion collections utilize fabric made out of bamboo, vegetable-dyed organic cottons, tencel made from eucalyptus trees, and trims that are made from recycled leather. Her journey into green began in 2005 upon learning she was expecting a child. She and her husband shed their “overly excessive” New York City lifestyle and began anew with one that is simple, modern, and organic. They moved into a green building, increased their trips to the green market, and made conscious everyday decisions. This new mindset, coupled with her career experience at Marc Jacobs and IISLI, opened her eyes to how the manufacturing process impacts the environment which was instrumental in bringing her design vision to fruition. Epstein resides in Manhattan with husband, Jason, and their two sons.
