Celebs Step Out and Step Up for Red Carpet Green Dress Event, Pre-Oscars !
February 23, 2017 was a night that the stars came out to celebrate the Eighth Annual Red Carpet Green Dress event. Hosted by Suzy Amis Cameron in partnership with Atelier Swarovksi, this great event brings awareness to sustainable fashion.
In attendance were this year’s celebrity partners:
-Emma Roberts (“Scream Queens”)
-Priyanka Bose (“Lion”)
-actress Missi Pyle (Red Carpet Green Dress previous participant),
-Red Carpet Green Dress founder Suzy Amis Cameron and husband James Cameron and many more.
The event, also supported by Earth Friendly Products, maker of ECOS™ Laundry Detergent, had just under 100 attendees come together in support of the eco-friendly initiative at a private Beverly Hills residence. The campaign raises funds to benefit MUSE School CA, an environmental non-profit educational organization Amis Cameron founded in Calabasas, Calif., with her sister Rebecca Amis.
As guests nibbled on vegan appetizers and sipped on Absolut Elyx vodka cocktails, Red Carpet Green Dress’ Global Campaign Manager Samata Pattinson opened the evening by sharing the impact Amis Cameron’s initiative has had on the fashion industry and community. Amis Cameron followed, and shared remarks from her heart about the importance of sustainable living and her dream to inspire future generations.
“We eat food every day; we wear clothes every day, but it takes a concerted effort to help make the world a better place,” shared Amis Cameron. “But we can all do our part. Recycling clothes, eating fresh organic food-even one conscious meal a day- every little bit helps.”
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.
Nadja Swarovski, member of the Swarovski Executive Board, spoke a few words highlighting the use of conscious luxury, as displayed by both Red Carpet Green Dress and Atelier Swarovski for the 2017 initiative.
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 p.m.
The event was held in anticipation of the 89th Academy Awards® (Sunday, Feb. 26, 2017). In honor of Red Carpet Green Dress, Emma Roberts and Priyanka Bose wore eco-conscious gowns made by top designers at the Academy Awards and debut some exclusive pieces from Atelier Swarovski’s first fine jewelry collection.
The gown is a Giorgio Armani gown from his very first Privé collection. Originally debuted in Paris in January 2005, the gown is embroidered with cream crystals and white jet beads and features a a two-tiered skirt and plunging neckline made of jet and black crystal teardrops.
The custom designed gown is created in a jewel-toned silk and lurex floral jacquard fabric, recycled from a past Vivienne Westwood collection. The pattern cutting technique has been designed to keep waste to an absolute minimum, using only 320 cms for the design. Leftover sequin film, usually left as waste from sequin production, is embroidered to the bodice of the dress creating a honeycomb effect, highlighted with reclaimed Swarovski crystals for added sparkle.
