See all the GCC looks from the iconic green carpet at the 2018 Green Carpet Fashion Awards, Italia:

Julianne Moore wearing a custom Ferragamo dress made from post-consumer PET bottles transformed into jersey ‘perPETual’ fabric; Alison Brie wearing a bespoke Miu Miu GOTS certified organic silk gown;  Cate Blanchett wearing a Stella McCartney look from the Green Carpet Collection for 2014 - this year’s GCC looks celebrated the innovation and craftmanship of sustainable luxury fashion in unprecedented style.

Guests arriving at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan walked the iconic green carpet (made from ECONYL® regenerated nylon), wearing sustainable looks that reflect our Eco-Age principles of aesthetics with ethics. 

Each of the looks showcased a range of innovative new materials including sustainably produced Century Cashmere, handwoven palm straw, and recycled polyester and nylon, and Piñatex pineapple leather alternative. 

See all of the GCC looks from this year’s Green Carpet Fashion Awards below:

Amber Valletta in Agnona for the GCC

Amber Valletta wears Agnona for the Green Carpet Challenge. This white hand stitched jacket is made from Century Cashmere. Century Cashmere is an iconic Agnona fabric sustainably produced in the Zegna fabric mill and sourced from Inner Mongolia, where the farming is not intensive.  This means that damage to the environment is minimised and traditional farming has remained unchanged. The scarf has been hand woven by the San Patrignano recovery community - each passage of the weft yarns across the warp represents a step forward in life for a person recovering from drug addiction in the San Patrignano programme as they master a craft with a renewed sense of purpose. 

Sara Sampaio in Alberta Ferretti for the GCC

Sara Sampaio wears Alberta Ferretti for the Green Carpet Challenge. This nude GOTS certified organic silk georgette dress has been produced in Florence and all other components for this bespoke piece have been repurposed from unused samples from Alberta Ferretti past collections. 

Tina Kunakey in Diesel for the GCC

@Tinakunakey wears @diesel for the #GreenCarpetChallenge @ecoage @cameramoda. This look has been made from regenerated cotton denim and natural indigo, using natural dying agents to create darker shades on the fabric. The treatment and frayed edges of the dress and jacket has been achieved with a treatment called "Ice Blasting". Ice Blasting is an innovative technique for the abrasion of denim and does not generate any secondary waste. Dry ice is non-toxic, non-hazardous and does not release harmful gases into the atmosphere. #GCFAItalia

 

Annabelle Belmondo in Ermanno Scervino for the GCC

Julianne Moore in Ferragamo for the GCC

Julianne Moore wears a custom Ferragamo dress and Chopard jewellery for the Green Carpet Challenge.
