What would the dress worn by Naomie Harris look like?
If you're a regular reader of the blog, you'll know that I'm talking about the Red Carpet, Green Dress Initiative, that allows a new designer to send a dress made with the cradle-to-cradle ethos in mind to the Oscars, worn by a movie star. This year's winner, Michael Badger, was worn by Bond Girl Naomie Harris, and as you can see, it's something of a stunner!
The green credentials even stretch to Michael's design process. He sketched the original concept using a recycled notebook, and used hemp watercolour paper for the final drawings. You have to admire the dedication to the cause.
Greenpeace's Detox Fashion campaign have fully endorsed the design. Tommy Crawford, its Creative Director says:
"The gown created for this year’s Red Carpet Green Dress contest proves that even the most intricate design, subject to the highest levels of scrutiny, can be as sustainable as it is beautiful.”The dress is currently being assessed for full cradle-to-cradle certification, and has helped the Red Carpet, Green Dress Foundation to raise over $12,000 for Muse School CA, a non-profit educational facility.
