Four gorgeous sustainable dresses at the Met Gala
Make it last scans the star-studded Met Gala for some sustainable success.
We dare say this is the year sustainable fashion had its real breakthrough at the Met Gala. The Green Carpet Challenge, working to bring conjoin glamour and ethics, has been around for some time but got a real push this year as Calvin Klein joined in to create sustainable gala looks for superstars Lupita Nyong’o, Margot Robbie and Emma Watson. Livia Firth, a long-time supporter of the Challenge, herself rewore a dress and looked great alongside Tom Ford.
Lupita Nyong’o’s jade sequin dress with velvet straps was assembled entirely in Calvin Klein’s New York atelier, with hours spent in-house on the embroidery and understructure of the dress. Margot Robbie’s optical white strapless dress with cutouts was made from a silk fabric woven in Italy, lined in organic silk and featured zippers made from recycled materials. Emma Watson’s look was made from Newline fabric, a unique yarn engineered from used plastic bottles; sourced, processed and spun into yarns exclusively in Italy. Every element of Emma’s outfit was considered from an ethical perspective down to the zippers which were also made from recycled plastic.
H&M contributed with at least one sustainable creation at the Met Gala as well, designed for model Amber Valletta. The creation of dark blue silk taffeta was embellished with sequins from recycled plastic and more than 1,000 leaves of organic silk. Some of the silk leaves were decorated with laser-cut details in vinyl with reflective effects.
