Emma Watson’s Beauty and The Beast Press Tour

Over the four-week tour, Emma’s looks were highlighted through a dedicated Instagram account @the_press_tour and included bespoke sustainable pieces by Givenchy, Phillip Lim, Louis Vuitton, Emilia Wickstead and Elie Saab, who all collaborated with Eco-Age for this special project.

Emma Watson, who stars as Belle, finished the press tour in style, wearing a stunning Dior dress. She hosted a special event where she shared her love of books with children from The NY Film Society for Kids, along with a screening of the new Disney film. Take a look at Emma’s looks below.

Eco-Age worked with Dior to source sustainable fabric options for this project. The silk used for the dress and cape is organic GOTS certified – a standard that guarantees the highest environmental and social standards throughout production and at every step of the way.

This special piece, validated by Eco-Age, was created in Dior ateliers by Maria Grazia Chiuri, Artistic Director at Christian Dior.

Oscar de la Renta

The white bespoke dress was created in Oscar de la Renta’s New York atelier, featuring hand embroidery on silk taffeta and a silk faille bow, both made in the Italian mill @taronisilk. The mill specialises in the highest quality couture fabrics, and is committed to reducing its environmental impact, including investing in solar energy and committing to removing all toxic chemicals from its supply chain by 2020. The hand embroidered silk taffeta panels have been cut and folded by hand, shaped using natural starch. The dress also features a repurposed zip from an unused sample.

Oscar de la Renta

Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia, the new Co-Creative Directors of Oscar de la Renta, created this Jacobian flower-embroidered duchesse satin bustier with an organic silk faille sash and organic wool trousers as part of their first collection. The entire look was made in-house at Oscar de la Renta’s NYC atelier

Emilia Wicksted

Bespoke Emilia Wickstead structural, off-the-shoulder gown with inverted pleat train. The gown is made from end-of-line fabric sourced from a family-run, London business specialising in couture fabrics, and produced in Italy. These unwanted fabric pieces have been given a new lease of life; often irregular quantities of surplus or end-of-line fabrics cannot be sold and are destroyed. This piece was created in Emilia Wickstead’s London atelier, by an all-female team.

Phillip Lim

Bespoke Phillip Lim, made from responsibly-sourced FSC (Forest Stewardship Certified) viscose, and Oeko-Tex 100 certified biodegradable acetate yarn.
