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 at 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 the 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®.
