Maison-de-Mode hosted their first annual Celebrate Sustainable Style gala on March 3rd. The gala honored Red Carpet Green Dress founder Suzy Amis Cameron and featured an auction of designer gowns to benefit Cameron’s MUSE School program.
Red Carpet Green Dress was founded by actress and environmental advocate Cameron in 2009. The program partners with high-end designers to feature sustainable fashions. Most recently, actors Lakeith Stanfield and Zoey Deutch donned Red Carpet Green Dress Program outfits at the 89th Annual Academy Awards.
The Celebrate Sustainable Style auction consisted of three eco-friendly dresses celebrities had previously worn to awards ceremonies. Gowns included a Vivienne Westwood piece worn by actress Rosario Dawson, a Gabriela Hearst dress modeled by activist Amanda Hearst and a Mary Katrantzou ensemble worn by Riverdale star Madelaine Petsch.
Dawson’s dress, made by Vivienne Westwood, featured an emerald green silk crepe marocain with a draped corset layered over a black tulle petticoat. The silk was hand-selected from Vivienne Westwood’s fabric archives, limiting the waste by reusing past material.
Gabriela Hearst’s navy one-shoulder gown dazzled with reclaimed Swarovski crystals. Socialite and activist Amanda Hearst walked the red carpet in the stunning dress.
Lastly, Riverdale actress Madelaine Petsch brought her classic fierceness to the gala in a perfect Mary Katrantzou asymmetrical gown made of sustainable silk satin and upcycled Swarovski crystals.
These gowns are now available to purchase exclusively on Maison-de-Mode.com, with a percentage of profits benefitting Cameron’s MUSE School. Each gown has a starting price of $2,000.
This emphasis on designer dresses featuring reused materials truly proves that being sustainable is in fashion.
