The unique event of the Red Carpet Green Dress has recently celebrated its 8th year and the internationally recognized organization is making waves in both fashion and sustainability.
This year’s event took place on February 23 and stars came out to support the organization’s cause of “bringing awareness to sustainable fashion” according to a press release.
The event was hosted by Suzy Amis Cameron who conceived the idea during the press tour for her husband, James Cameron’s film “Avatar”, with the hopes to draw attention to the importance of more sustainable practices in fashion by challenging designers from around the world to think about fashion in an eco-friendly platform.
“We eat food every day; we wear clothes every day, but it takes a concerted effort to help make the world a better place,” Suzy Amis Cameron said at the event. “But we can all do our part. Recycling clothes, eating fresh organic food-even one conscious meal a day – every little bit helps.”
The event took place with the partnership of Atelier Swarovksi, with the common aim to bring awareness to sustainable fashion and around 100 attendees come together in support of the eco-friendly initiative at a private Beverly Hills residence.
The event was sponsored by Earth Friendly Products, maker of ECOSTM Laundry Detergent and Ms. Vlahakis-Hanks, CEO of Earth Friendly Products, is no stranger to eco-friendly initiatives as she has a constant influential voice in corporate and social responsibility and her business is a model for green business practices.
In attendance were this year’s celebrity partners Emma Roberts from “Scream Queens” and Priyanka Bose from “Lion”, in addition to actress Missi Pyle who is a Red Carpet Green Dress previous participant.
The campaign also raises funds for MUSE School CA, a non-profit educational organization that Suzy Amis Cameron founded with her sister Rebecca Amis in Calabasas, California. One of the highlights of the evening came from the students of MUSE School CA, who shared first-hand testimonials of the impact the financial support from Red Carpet Green Dress has made on their lives.
The elegant affair, at which guests were able to mingle, enjoy the evening and high-quality fashion that supports a sustainable lifestyle, concluded around 9 pm.
The event was held in anticipation of the 89th Academy Awards, which will take place on Sunday, February 26, 2017. In honor of Red Carpet Green Dress, Emma Roberts and Priyanka Bose will reveal eco-conscious gowns made by top designers at the Academy Awards and debut exclusive pieces from Atelier Swarovski’s first fine jewelry collection.
