Several Hollywood celebrities have cultivated an image as environmentally aware social activists, drawing attention to causes like climate change, the depletion of the rainforests and more. A new student design competition seeks to take the process one step further by developing sustainable fashions for stars to rock while they grace the red carpet.
The Red Carpet Green Dress contest tasks designers to create unique designs using only sustainable materials such as recycled fabrics and organic materials, with the winning design receiving national exposure at what the mercury news describes as "one of Hollywood''s largest" film awards shows.
Sponsored by actress Suzy Amis Cameron - the wife of Avatar director and self-professed king of the world, James Cameron - the competition is a fundraiser for Muse, an educational organization designed to promote the wellbeing of children around the world.
"Red Carpet Green Dress provides an amazing opportunity to aspiring designers and perfectly connects to MUSE''s global green philosophy by applying environmental awareness to our everyday lives," Amis Cameron tells the organization''s website.
