Welcome to Organic Fashion, a new Filles on Film feature that spotlights all fashion with no filler. Fast-fashion, a crowded fashion week calendar, and street-style chaos has some fashion lovers wishing for a return to a simpler time when fashion shows weren't mobbed by street style photogs and fashion houses weren't lumped together in such fashion behemoths as Kering and PPR. 

Organic Fashion will feature everything from slow fashion companies to the shouts and murmurs from fashion insiders.

This week, read Suzy Menkes latest column for T magazine in which she warns that the whirlwind pace of the fashion calendar can have and adverse effect on designers.

In other organic fashion news, Oscar de la Renta is forgoing megashow mania by opting for a more intimate setting for his SS 2014 show. Guests in attendance will be only those with a "legitimate professional purpose."
