Harrods hosts Green Cut
By 12 October 2012
Beginning later this month Harrods will host an exclusive exhibition showcasing ‘Green Cut’, a unique initiative from The Green Carpet Challenge co-founders, Livia Firth and Lucy Siegle. Bringing together the British Fashion Council and the British Film Institute for the first time, Green Cut pairs eight seminal fashion designers with eight iconic British films.
Each designer has created a bespoke piece that offers a contemporary take on a classic film. All designers have followed sustainable criteria developed by The Green Carpet Challenge, Livia Firth's initiative to embed and raise the profile of sustainable principles in fashion design. The final pieces prove beyond doubt that ethics and glamour can co-exist.
It is the first time so many high-profile designers have collaborated on a project of this nature creating a unique collection.
