The Green Carpet Fashion Awards, 2019
For the third edition of the GCFA’s, I created the illustrations for the 500sqm green carpet and tapestry, both of which were made by Econyl from recycled fishing nets. With creative direction from Vogue’s Hamish Bowles, the floral motifs were inspired by Leonardo di Vinci’s medieval tapestry work, exhibited in the Met Cloisters in New York. The illustrations were also used across all event branding. The 2019 Awards were held during September Milan Fashion Week at the Teatro alla Scala, hosted by Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana and Eco-Age. The awards reflect the commitment of fashion houses to sustainability, as they work to embrace rapid change while preserving the heritage and authenticity of small-scale producers.
