Laura Harrier In Ethical Louis Vuitton Gown

BLACKKKLANSMAN’S LAURA HARRIER WOWS IN BESPOKE ETHICAL LOUIS VUITTON GOWN AT THE 91ST ACADEMY AWARDS® REPRESENTING
SUZY AMIS CAMERON’S RED CARPET GREEN DRESS INITIATIVE


As a partner with Suzy Amis Cameron’s celebrated Red Carpet Green Dress (RCGD) campaign,  BlacKkKlansman lead actress Laura Harrier, wowed the crowd as she arrived to the 91st Academy Awards ® wearing bespoke ethical gown made by Louis Vuitton.

Harrier’s gown was created in the Louis Vuitton’s Paris atelier with an ethical and eco-responsible approach established with long-time verified suppliers. The gown is made of TARONI SPA blue crepe silk certified by the Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS), which is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria.

The handmade embroidery by Vermont Paris required more than 450 hours of work, and is made of glass beads, Swarovski crystal shards and sequins respecting the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, an international quality label for harmless textiles.

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.

This year makes the 10th anniversary of RCGD, and in honor of this, the 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.

Amis Cameron launched RCGD back in 2009, with the intention to create awareness for the importance of sustainable practices in fashion.  Each year, RCGD works with international designers to create sustainable eveningwear to showcase during the Academy Awards®.

Also supporting the sustainable lifestyle are RCGD 2019 partners TESLA, Absolut Elyx and AKA luxury serviced residencies, a vibrant destination featuring exquisite residences designed for stays of 31 days or longer. It is because of their help along with annual contests that financial security can be provided to MUSE School CA.

Lakeith Stanfield x Ermenegildo Zenga

Critically acclaimed actor Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out, Atlanta, Come SundaySorry To Bother You, The Girl In The Spider’s Web) wowed viewers when he walked the red carpet at the 90th Annual Academy Awards ® wearing a custom-made sustainable tuxedo made by Ermenegildo Zegna Couture. The look was styled by Michaela Erlanger and worn in support of Suzy Amis Cameron’s Red Carpet Green Dress ethical fashion campaign.

The tuxedo is a navy Tussah Silk, which is sturdier than cultivated silk. Typically gathered in the jungle from cocoons of wild silk moths, the silk is found in a natural state with minimal human intervention and very little invasion to the process. For this reason, unlike a silk yarn produced with greater mechanical interventions, the yarn of Tussah silk features irregularities creating a rich texture, typical of wild, natural breeding.

In 2009, Amis Cameron created Red Carpet Green Dress with the goal of creating awareness for the importance of sustainable practices in fashion.  Each year, Red Carpet Green Dress works with international designers to create sustainable eveningwear to showcase during the Academy Awards®.

Also supporting the sustainable lifestyle are RCGD 2018 partners, TESLA and Absolut Elyx. Absolut Elyx is a company that is built on the principles of quality, integrity and true craftsmanship. Every copper purchase in the Elyx Boutique, allows the luxury vodka company to provide safe water to more than 100,000 people worldwide with the help of Water for People.

It is because of their help along with annual contests that financial security can be provided to MUSE School CA.
