Red Carpet Green Dress, a leading voice in the field of sustainable design, has announced to launch the RCGD Global Design Contest 2020 in partnership with Tencel Luxe. Red Carpet Green Dress was conceived in response to the growing need for sustainable fashion. Founded by environmentalist Suzy Amis Cameron, the contest is open to anyone over the age of 21.
 
The winners will be selected by an international panel of sustainable fashion experts. The winning designers will get the opportunity to dress prominent influencers in the fashion and entertainment industry for an exciting red carpet moment and present their work to an audience of eco-influencers in LA at the RCGD Gala, along with a monetary award, and business mentorship and more. 
 
Supported by the Conscious Fashion Campaign in collaboration with the United Nations Office for Partnerships, the campaign and contest will be directing a percentage of funds raised towards two crucial organisations: Awaj Foundation in Bangladesh and The Fifth Pillar (in cooperation with Fair Wear) in Myanmar, by directing funds to the disproportionately vulnerable garment workers severely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
 
“At RCGD, we believe this is an important time for our sustainable design contest, which champions a message of hope and opportunity, particularly when spirits are so low. When Suzy Amis Cameron started the initiative in 2009, her motivations were to create opportunities and visibility for fashion designers and to fundraise for environmental or socially responsible causes. We could not think of a more relevant time to step up for both of those reasons, over 10 years later. We are excited to partner with Tencel Luxe and put the crucial spotlight on emerging design talent, and at the same time the incredible work our allies at Awaj Foundation in Bangladesh and The Fifth Pillar in Myanmar are doing to support garment workers right now,” Samata Pattinson, CEO of Red Carpet Green Dress, said in a press release.
 
“For decades, sustainability has always been sidelined in eco-couture. Through our partnership with Red Carpet Green Dress, we are able to put the spotlight on sustainability on the red carpet. We are thrilled to join hands with Red Carpet Green Dress in the RCGD Global Design Contest 2020 and together, we will take a greater stride forward to build a more sustainable industry ecosystem. We look forward to seeing many creative eco-couture entries and inspire designers all over the world to support us in driving sustainability in the fashion industry,” Harold Weghorst, vice president of Global Marketing, Lenzing AG, said.
 
“Red Carpet Green Dress shares our vision in impacting positive change within the fashion industry. Working hand in hand with the United Nations Office for Partnerships we aim to support meaningful multi-stakeholder collaborations which secure a future where no one is left behind. Empowering next generation talent along with supporting women garment workers is a catalyst to commitment towards dynamic and lasting change,” Kerry Bannigan, founder Conscious Fashion Campaign in collaboration with the United Nations Office for Partnerships, said.
