Sustainable Louis Vuitton Gowns on the Oscars 2020 Red Carpet
Both James Bond Spectre actress Léa Seydoux and Kaitlyn Deaver worn beautiful sustainable sourced gowns on the Oscar’s 2020 Red Carpet made by Louis Vuitton. The gowns were part of the Red Carpet Green Dress (RCGD) x Tencel Collection designed to promote ethically sourced sustainable gowns.
Léa Seydoux wore an ethical and eco-responsible Louis Vuitton custom-made gown from the newly launched Red Carpet Green Dress™ textile made from TENCEL™Luxe filament yarn and organic silk faille paired with custom-made organic Louis Vuitton satin sandals.
Kaitlyn Deaver wore a striking strapless red gown made of ethical and eco-responsible certified silk satin, embroidered with Swarovski crystals and glass beads. The gown and it’s accompanying wrap dispelled any notion that sustainable garments are not fashionable.
This is the second consecutive year, Louis Vuitton has partnered with the global change-making organization and has dressed three celebrity ambassadors: Unbelievable actress Kaitlyn Dever who arrived earlier today in custom Louis Vuitton, and last year the global fashion house dressed RCGD ambassador Laura Harrier (BlackKklansman). It is with partners like Louis Vuitton, Seydoux, Dever, Harrier and TENCEL™ Luxe, RCGD is able to continue to create red carpet “moments” and make them “movements” bringing sustainable designs to the forefront of conversation and action within the fashion industry.
What makes a garment from Red Carpet Green Dress (RCGD) sustainable fashion?
In order to be qualified as RCGD eco-conscious garment there are some very specific criteria.
- Each piece must either be made from sustainable materials, including organic, recycled or repurposed fibers
- Garment 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.
- TENCEL™ Luxe filament yarns are made from sustainable wood resources using a close loop production process awarded with the EU Ecolabel.
The Red Carpet Green Dress initiative, founded by Suzy Amis Cameron continues to gain momentum since it’s introduction. Today, leading fashion houses Louis Vuitton, Vivienne Westwood, Armani, Elie Saab, Swarovski, Christian Siriano, Bulgari, Dunhill and Reformation have joined the campaign to create sustainable gowns for the biggest award show in the world
