Need another reason to enter Suzy Amis Cameron’s “RCGD Global” competition? The annual talent search has recruited no less than Vivienne Westwood as a judge and mentor. The legendary British designer—and born-again “climate revolutionary”—will not only help choose a winning designer, but she’ll also work with him or her to bring the design to life for an as-yet-unnamed actress at the 85th Academy Awards in 2013. “We are at war with our environment and our future is unsteady,” Westwood says in a statement. “In order for a shift to occur we must make informed decisions to live more harmoniously with our planet, and I’ve joined RCGD Global because its message aligns with this idea.”
Amis Cameron launched the competition in 2010 to find a gown to wear to the 82nd Academy Awards, where her husband, Avatar director James Cameron, was up for nine awards. Chief among her requirements was a look that combined both style and sustainability.Source: Ecouterre. Read original article here.
