It doesn’t matter if you are a movie buff, a fashion lover or neither, everyone loves gawking over the couture gowns gracing their way down the Oscars Red Carpet. What's making the red carpet more interesting and inspiring lately are all the stunning eco-warrior celebs choosing sustainable designs and rocking the red carpet.
This year’s winner of Suzy Amis Cameron’s 'Red Carpet, Green Dress' initiative was this spectacular gown designed by Michael Badger. British starlet and Bond girl – Naomie Harris had the honour of wearing this stunning eco-conscious design down the red carpet showing everyone that sustainable can be sexy!
Michael Badger is a fashion design student at Savannah College of Art and Design and was mentored through-out the design process by Vivienne Westwood (who is becoming a great campaigner for climate change and fashion consumption habits - not to mention her iconic flair for design.)
Inspired by the appearance of flowing lava and volcanoes the dress was dyed with goldenrod and chamomile containing no chemical pollutants with all the by-products ending straight up in the compost bin. The gown was made from certified organic silk crepe de chine, recycled zippers, vintage glass beads and chocolate candy wrappers - incredible! I love how sustainability leads to innovative designs and concepts such as this!
If you love these eco red carpet back stories as much as me, keep an eye out for Livia Firths (Colin Firths other half) Green Carpet Challenge as well.
