I have only just come across this book and only minutes ago ordered my copy. So until I read it here are some reviews of the book from http://www.stylenaturally.com/aboutstyle/

Tone Skårdal Tobiasson, Fashion editor and co-founder Nordic Initiative Clean & Ethical says,

“Chock full of chic eco fashion and beauty, style, naturally makes green and ethical choices much more than a single season’s “must haves.” Summer Rayne’s book is truly inspirational and entertaining both for pros and fashionistas, making sustainable the obvious choice.

Jack Yan, Founding publisher of Lucire, Co-author of Beyond Branding says

“Summer Rayne Oakes’s style, naturally is indeed a book for our times. For those who wish to combine fashion, beauty and a social conscience, it is a beautifully presented, practical guide. Whether it’s discovering the personal styles of some leading citizens, finding out at a glance the most ecologically aware labels, or being inspired on ways we can make a difference, style, naturally is a fabulous must-read.”

Matthew Allen, Pret a Porte says

“Style, naturally is the ultimate reference of cataloging the best of sustainable style. It artfully portrays and explores the most recent talents paired with the ultimate pioneers such as Katharine Hamnett. The glossy photos are comparable to the top fashion magazines and Summer Rayne Oakes, the author and model is herself a Sustainable Style Icon… This is inspired and insatiably researched, beautiful piece of publishing.”

Can't wait to get my copy and do a review myself. Please click on video to hear what Summer Rayne Oakes has to say about the book.
