Suzy Amis Cameron’s Red Carpet Green Dress (RCGD) celebrates its 10th anniversary showcasing sustainable fashion. In honor of 10 years rocking sustainable dresses on the red carpet, RCGD is pleased to announce that Laura Harrier, from this year’s six-time Oscar nominated film BlacKkKlansman, and Danielle Macdonald, from the Oscar nominated short film Skin and Netflix’s acclaimed DUMPLIN’, will be representing RCGD at the 91st Academy Awards. They will be wearing ethical gowns designed by global fashion houses.
Each year the RCGD campaign has worked with internationally acclaimed designers to dress stars in sustainable formal wear for the Academy Awards®.
To qualify as a RCGD eco-conscious garment, each piece must either be made from sustainable materials, including organic, recycled or repurposed fibers. Other features include using hand-made detailing or incorporating natural dye processing, with a dedicated focus on minimal negative impact on the environment, and environmentally and socially responsible design.
In honor of the 10th anniversary, this year’s sustainable criteria will be overseen by Good On You, a new partner of RCGD. Good On You is the world’s leading rating system on ethical and sustainable fashion to assist people in making positive shopping choices–all delivered through an accessible app.
“I can’t believe it has been 10 years since RCGD was born,” shares founder Amis Cameron. “It has been an incredible journey and inspiring to see how the campaign has grown every year. I am so proud of helping people become more aware of what sustainable fashion can look like and its impact on the planet. What we wear and the fashion industry has a tremendous impact on the environment—and people’s choices can move the marketplace and the climate change needle. From changing one of your meals a day to a plant-based meal, to wearing vintage or ethically made clothes, we can all make a difference. Thank you to everyone for your continued support and joining the green revolution!”
