Christopher Bailey, the talented force behind Burberry Prorsum has joined forces with the GCC to create two red carpet ready looks. The cocktail gown is a seriously sleek black dress with a sweetheart neckline made from Newlife fabric (satin from 100% recycled plastic bottles) with 100% OEKO-TEX® certified silk lining. This inimitable LBD was worn by the incredible Natalie Massenet, Founder and Executive Chairman of Net-a-Porter who in a recent interview said “Fashion is worth £21billion to this country, it’s bigger than the UK car industry.” She is a pioneer behind bringing ethical fashion to the centre stage and a true supporter of the GCC.
From the perfect LBD, Christopher Bailey pulled out all the stops for his GCC gown, a floor length, full sleeved cream lace creation, offering a striking silhouette for any red carpet. The gown was made in 100% OEKO-TEX® certified French lace with 100% OEKO-TEX® certified silk lining.
Christopher Bailey says, “Our starting point was, very simply, to create something with real integrity. We didn’t set out to create ‘green’ dresses, but rather to produce something responsibly that explores the whole idea of sustainability. The result is two dresses that play with fabric and construction to reflect a sense of fragility but also the strength and positivity of what we hope will be a bright future. ”
