Guests including Patrick Dempsey, Colin Firth, Erin O’Connor, Roland Mouret, Lucy Yeomans, Belinda Earl, Jo Hayes and many more joined the hosts to support the ground-breaking documentary that explores the impact fast-fashion has on people and the planet.
The screening was followed by an exclusive Q+A with Livia Firth, Creative Director of Eco-Age, and UN Women Global Goodwill Ambassador, Emma Watson, hosted by Lucy Siegle.
Livia Firth said “Emma is a real example for me of how every woman should be and it is such a pleasure to have hosted the screening of True Cost with her tonight. It has been said that fashion is a feminist issue – maybe it is also about sisterhood and it starts from women in the West holding virtual hands with the women who make, in far away countries, the clothes we wear every single day. Emma lives this reality and embodies this completely”.
Livia and Emma both embraced the values of the Green Carpet Challenge and the new campaign #30wears.
Livia wore for the screening her aunt Nadia’s sequined top from the ‘60s on top of Marks & Spencer culottes and old Roger Vivier shoes, which she has worn on many occasions in the last three years.
Emma wore a dress by Gabriela Hearst, shoes by Paul Andrew, bag by Stella McCartney and coat by Behno.
