About GEN XYZ
Through collaboration and knowledge sharing, we work with emerging designers, fashion colleges and students, drawing attention to the importance of more positive practices in the fashion industry. With each sustainable design created, Red Carpet Green Dress seeks to show a range of ways in which more sustainable practices can be incorporated through the creative and production process, and demonstrate practices which are both scalable and viable.
Through our work we engage local communities from environmental schools to design colleges, to help the emerging generation of talent find a meaningful and environmentally-focused place within the design world. RCGD have worked with fashion colleges around the world, including the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising and Fashion Institute of Technology to create internship and work experience opportunities for emerging designers. We engage with local communities including artisan textile producers and seamstresses, specifically sustainable design experts, whilst introducing them to global business opportunities and creating knowledge share platforms. Through talks, workshops and community-building events, RCGD take the conversation from the red carpet to the homes of people around the world and engage them in sustainability as a topic which affects us all. We are also proud to use our platform to ensure representation and inclusion for the talent working across the fashion industry and entertainment worlds. To date our campaign has worked with designers and emerging talent from over 23 countries, specifically China, Scotland, Ireland, UK, Ukraine, India, Brazil, Australia, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Wales, Poland, France, Lebanon, Italy, Ghana, Venezuela, New Zealand, Cambodia, Switzerland, Isreal and the USA.
