Beyond Skin to introduce vegan red carpet shoes at Oscars

Mar '14
The forthcoming 86th Academy Awards will not only see the leading French actress Olga Kurylenko sporting the coveted Red Carpet Green Dress challenge winning gown but also a special vegan shoe to go with the dazzling eco-friendly outfit.
 
Jointly created by the UK-based ethical footwear manufacturer Beyond Skin and the international animal charity foundation People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), the red carpet footwear is made from 100 percent recycled bottle tops.
 
Decorated with faux suede and metallic trimmings, the limited-edition Italy-made evening shoe will be later available for sale from March 3, 2014 onwards on Beyond Skin’s website.
 
About 10 percent of the proceeds from sales will go to the private, non-profit educational institution MUSE School, California, owned and run by the Red Carpet Green Dress competition organizer Suzy Amis Cameron.
 
Other than the 34-year-old star Olga Kurylenko, the Oscars ceremony, which is scheduled to take place on March 2, 2014, will also see the ‘Twilight Saga’ film series star Kellan Lutz in Red Carpet Green Dress challenge’s maiden tuxedo suit.
 
Founded in 2001, Beyond Skin has won this year’s Most Stylish Women’s Flat Shoes title at the just held PETA-approved Vegan Fashion Awards, which recognises brands that promote and support kind treatment to animals by using pleather, faux-fur, mock-croc and other cruelty-free materials in their designs.
 
Started by environmental advocate Suzy Amis Cameron, wife of famous film director James Cameron, the Red Carpet Green Dress is an international dress design competition which invites designers from across the world to create an Oscar worthy sustainable dress.
 
 
To connect manufacturers and suppliers with buying houses and fashion brands, Fibre2fashion.com is coming up with an online fair on Leather Skin Show 2014” scheduled in Mid March-2014.
