Back in August, John Bartlett announced that he would be shuttering his West Village boutique, but would continue to sell his clothes on his website. Today, the Shophound reports that after 2 years, Bartlett will return to the runway for New York Fashion Week. The upcoming fall collection will include "organic shapes in plant-based cottons" and other upcycled and repurposed fabrics, as the designer has sworn off using any leather or animal-related products.
