The best thing about creating a beautiful dress is knowing that everyone involved with the process has the same passion for the environment and for creating beautiful sustainable pieces as we do. We have been working alongside TENCEL™ Luxe and the leading ethical luxury fashion brand @Benedetti.Life to create a bespoke dress made from one of the textiles from our RCGD X TENCEL™ collaboration which is made from 100% TENCEL™ Luxe filament yarn derived from wood pulp from sustainably managed sources…which means it is also 100% plant-based. Thank you to @VeganFashionWeek™ for your support!
Matea of Benedetti Life: Questioning the form and function of the dress, the textile manipulations inspired Matea Benedetti (@Benedetti.Life) a conceptual vision of Haute Couture as an art destined to dress bodies that are always unique and planet friendly. Handmade details remember a historical renaissance collar and the upper part of the body was inspired from flowers and feather textures. This dress was made with the innovative Red Carpet Green Dress™️ textile derived from 100% TENCEL™️ Luxe yarn. The dress is animal free and able to biodegrade – under industrial, home, soil and marine conditions – within 8 to 12 weeks. Created exclusively by Benedetti Life for Red Carpet Green Dress™️ (RCGD).
