Always wanted to walk down the red carpet with eco-minded celebs? If you’re a green designer, the Red Carpet Green Dress contest is your chance. Design a winning green dress and you and your dress model will get to walk down the red carpet at the Global Green pre-Oscar party in Hollywood — as guests of Suzy Amis Cameron and James Cameron, no less!
The prize is a swanky one, which includes $2,000 to turn a dress design into reality — plus airfare and hotel for both the winner and the winner’s model. For a chance to win, design a dress, then submit the sketch along with notes on the sustainable aspects along with a $75 entry fee. If your design is the one chosen by Suzy Amis Cameron, get ready to travel to Hollywood for the big party on Feb. 23.
Now in its second year, the Red Carpet Green Dress Contest is both a fashion design contest and a fundraiser for a humanitarian cause. The money raised through the contest goes to the MUSE Global program — which funds a school in Thailand for children who’ve escaped the genocide in Burma — and MUSE School, a nonprofit elementary school in Topanga, Calif.
