The Green Queen of the Red Carpet
The dress which Livia Firth, Golden Globe winner Colin Firth´s wife, wore on the red carpet at the weekend was outstanding, in many respects – not least because it was a glamorous example of what we like to call “eco-chic“.
The dress was made from hand-dyed indigo ´peace´ silk, also known as ´ahimsa´ or ´vegan silk´, and it was designed by the American ´eco warrior´ of fashion, Jeff Garner, a poet and former mover and shaker in the music industry, who is now a regular star on London Fashion Week ´s stage. It was, in fact, at LFW in September, where Livia first became aware of Prophetik, when she attended Garner´s spring/summer 2011 show with fellow eco-campaigner, Laura Bailey.
Apart from Livia Firth, Prophetik´s earth-conscious designs have also been worn by Cameron Diaz, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Sheryl Crow, the Kings of Leon and the Jonas Brothers.
With Colin Firth tipped to win the ´Best Actor´ Oscar at this year´s Academy Awards, Livia will definitely be at his side on the red carpet. We may not know yet what she will wear. But of one thing we can be certain, it will be ´green´.
