Last weekend our founder Jacquelyn Willard teamed up with Suzy Amis Cameron to host a pre-party for Cameron’s Red Carpet Green Dress contest for the Oscar’s! It was a star-studded event where the most successful (& most eco-conscious) names in Hollywood celebrated eco-fashion as it takes over the red carpet. Cameron, a veteran of award shows, started the contest to challenge designers around the world to create glamorous attire that’s both sustainably made and on par – or better – than the conventionally manufactured gowns and tuxes still worn by many celebrities. What better use of the spotlight?
The party, coordinated in part by Lux & Eco, featured sustainable food and beverage vendors and each guest took home an overstuffed gift bag filled with goodies found on our site. Gifts included Veev Organic Vodka, Linnea’s Lights Candles, Harney & Sons Organic Tea, Purely Elizabeth Gluten Free Baking Products, products from the admirable Marci Zaroff‘s line Under the Canopy, I Am Enlightened Nutrition, and Modern Minerals make-up.
The media has provided some healthy press for our event and Suzy’s cause so far, stay tuned for our own inside coverage of the party and the main event, the Oscar’s, starring the Red Carpet Green Dress winners!
“We are honored to partner with Red Carpet Green Dress and to showcase the remarkable brands that make up Lux & Eco’s shopping experience. There is a lot of synergy between our sustainable initiatives as they showcase a lifestyle and aesthetic that redefines luxury. We are incredibly inspired by Suzy’s commitment to educating the next generation on the importance of conscious living and celebrating ingenuity in design.” – Jacquelyn Willard
