The changemakers, disruptors, forward thinkers and organisations that are shaping the fashion industry and taking it towards a sustainable future were honoured at the third edition of the Green Carpet Fashion Awards, Italia, hosted by Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana along with Eco-Age. There were 12 awards and the recipients included Valentino Garavani.

Guests at the event included Adut Akech, Jon Kortajarena, Stella McCartney, Dame Anna Wintour, Valentino Garavani, Sophia Loren, Alessandra Ambrosio, Doutzen Kroes, Colin Firth, Shailene Woodley, Barbara Palvin, Elsa Hosk, Amber Valletta, Candice Swanepoel, Eric Underwood, Sinead Burke, Olivia Palermo, Ian Somerhalder, Nikki Reed, Pixie Geldof, Jess Glynne, Kat Graham, Lea T and Toni Garrn.

Guests walked the carpet before enjoying a champagne reception in the La Scala Square garden, which was designed by the award’s creative director and American Vogue’s international editor at large, Hamish Bowles. This year’s sustainable green carpet covered Piazza La Scala using more than 2,000 square metres of Econyl regenerated nylon. Created from rescued fishing nets and other nylon waste, the carpet provided the backdrop for the event, and following the awards will be recycled or repurposed.

All plants and flowers used in the production of the event will donated to the City of Milan and re-planted.

The star-studded ceremony saw 12 awards being presented to recipients including Valentino Garavani, founder of Valentino, who was presented with the GCFA Legacy Award; Stella McCartney, who was awarded the GCFA Groundbreaker Award; and model Doutzen Kroes, who was presented with the Social Media Changemaker award for using her platform for activism.

The CNMI Talent Competition winner of The Franca Sozzani GCC Award for best emerging designer was also announced as Flavia La Rocca.

The Franca Sozzani GCFA Award for Best Emerging Designer was given to Flavia La Rocca, the GCFA Visionary Award was given to Francois Henri-Pinault, chairman and CEO of Kering Group, and the Eco Stewardship Award was handed over to the Association of Venetian Gondoliers.

Healthy Seas got the GCFA Circular Economy Award, Max Mara and Zegna got the CMNI in Recognition of Sustainability Award, SprintItaly and SICIT received the GCFA Award for Technology and Innovation, I Was a Sari was selected for the Responsible Disruption Award, NYU Stern Centre for Business and Human Rights and the Union of Concerned Researchers in Fashion received the GCFA North Star Award, and the Art of Craftsmanship Award was given to Pino Grasso.
