The Oscars is a time to discuss fashion, best and worst dressed.  How about Green and sustainable dress? The focus on sustainable fashion is relevant to entering the conversation on design.  The attendees “Kellan Lutz and Olga Kurylenko bring sustainable fashion to Oscars”   bring green dress.

“For the fifth year in a row, Suzy Amis Cameron made sure the Oscars’ red carpet contained a bit of green as well. Cameron’s “Red Carpet Green Dress” competition, which challenges fashion designers to create Academy Award-worthy looks using sustainable and ethical materials, was represented last night by “Hercules” actor Kellan Lutz and “Quantum Solace” Bond girl Olga Kurylenko,” according to Mother Nature Network.

“According to sources, the 34-year-old actress’ gown was made “from 100% GOTS certified organic peace silk and 100% GOTS certified organic silk. It was first hand-dyed with Sappanwood – a legume which produces a reddish-colored dye and is sustainable due to its fast growth rate – then overdyed with madder root to give it a deeper shade of red. As for Lutz, his tuxedo jacket is “45% certified silk and 55% rPET; the pants are made of hemp and plant-dyedwith logwood; the waistcoat is made of hemp and 100-year-old spitalfield silk and was dyed with marigold flowers.”

The sustainable leaders focusing on green can bring innovation and opportunity to uplift fashion.  Consider green and sustainable Haute Couture as fashion prominent where best dress is in sustainable design. Green may one day be the new Black.
