About Red Carpet Green Dress: Red Carpet Green Dress is an internationally recognized organization that combines the worlds of fashion and sustainability. Currently in its seventh year, the campaign was conceived by Suzy Amis Cameron during the press tour for husband James Cameron’s film Avatar. Her hope was to draw attention to the importance of more sustainable practices in fashion. It challenges designers from around the world to think about fashion in an eco friendly platform. The campaign also raises funds for MUSE School CA, a non profit educational organization that Amis Cameron cofounded in Malibu Canyon.
About Vivienne Westwood: Vivienne Westwood began designing in 1971, and by the end of the 1970s, she was already considered a symbol of the British avantgarde. For Autumn/Winter 1981, Westwood showed her first catwalk presentation in London. In 1986, a radical change of direction moved Westwood away from street style and youth culture as she adopted more traditional Savile Row tailoring techniques. Since then, Westwood has received numerous accolades, continues to show in Paris, Milan and London, and is one of the most influential fashion designers in the world today. She uses the medium of her shows to talk about culture and politics, more specifically about the urgent need to act against climate change.

It’s official our founder and her husband rock!
James Cameron, Suzy Amis Cameron Unveil ‘Solar Sun Flowers’ Project – Five are installed at the MUSE School CA campus, where they are expected to power about 90 percent of on-site energy needs.“My incredible husband really knows how to give a girl a bouquet of flowers,” Suzy Amis-Cameron said of James Cameron, who designed Solar Sun Flowers for her as a gift when she was seeking a way to bring renewable energy to MUSE School CA, which she co-founded with a mission around sustainability.
Five were recently installed on the 22-acre Malibu Canyon campus and are generating roughly 300 kilowatt hours per day, with expectations to offset the non-profit school’s power usage between 75 percent and 90 percent — possibly 100 percent at times — depending on available daylight. And the patent-pending design will next be available, free and open-source, to encourage wider use.
