Red Carpet Green Dress
Red Carpet Green Dress is a sustainable fashion campaign founded by Suzy Amis Cameron fundraising for MUSE School CA
Throughout the year Red Carpet Green Dress as an organisation engages with educators, environmental leaders, designers, businesses and influencers within the sustainable design realm to implement change through supply chains, in schools and in businesses. To date our partners and supporters have included and include TESLA, Vivienne Westwood, Armani, ESMOD, Reformation and other brands committed to the green and ethical message we champion. Each year the campaign has worked with internationally acclaimed designers each year to dress stars in ethical formal wear and jewelry for the Academy Awards®.
The contest element alone challenges designers to create an Oscar® worthy dress made entirely of sustainable materials. The competition aims to engage designers and celebrity in creating a masterpiece of sustainable design worthy of the red carpet while advocating for a message of sustainability and longevity within the global fashion industry.
Numerous celebrities have stood with Red Carpet Green Dress and walked the red carpet in the name of sustainability including but not limited to Priyanka Bose (Lion) Emma Roberts (Scream Queens), Sophie Turner (X-Men, Game of Thrones), Naomie Harris (Moonlight), Gina Rodriguez (Annihilation, Jane the Virgin), Kellan Lutz (Twilight), Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out), Zoey Deutch, Camila Alves, Jake McDorman (American Sniper) and Missi Pyle (Gone Girl). Since its inception, the campaign has grown to include brand collaborations, internships, knowledge-share platforms and educational experiences for students.
Now going into its tenth year, the sustainable fashion campaign sets the challenge for creatives, emerging and established designers worldwide, to create a Red Carpet worthy dress, or tuxedo, from environmentally and socially responsible fabrics – thus fulfilling the Green Dress criteria. The final ethical designs are then showcased on the red carpet at the Annual Academy Awards®.
EACH YEAR WE ARE EXCITED TO ENGAGE WITH MORE AND MORE PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD – FROM STUDENTS LOOKING FOR AN OPPORTUNITY FOR IN-HOUSE LEARNING, ACROSS TO BRANDS KEEN TO WORK ON AN INNOVATIVE AND SUSTAINABLE DESIGN FOR THE OSCARS RED CARPET.
Our hope is to draw attention to the importance of more positive practices in fashion.

MUSE School CA
Red Carpet Green Dress was launched for a dual purpose. To highlight the importance of positive fashion, and to fundraise for MUSE School CA.Founded in 2006 by Suzy Amis Cameron and Rebecca Amis, MUSE School CA is a private, non-profit school offering a student-centered academic curriculum for students 2.3 to 18 years of age. MUSE School’s mission is “To Inspire and Prepare Young People to Live Consciously with Themselves, One Another, and the Planet.” At MUSE, learning is alive. Interconnections are critical between students, educators, and parents. Sustainability is key on our two beautiful, green campuses in Calabasas. Lastly, MUSE is ever-evolving by embracing change and consistently challenging ourselves in our ongoing efforts to learn, grow, and improve.

Bodies are nurtured with fresh organic foods and an honor for all living things, including the planet, is cultivated daily.
MUSE School CA Scholarship Fund enables us to provide financial aid to over 60% of its families. With your help: $100 feeds the hawk, owl and falcon per week that provide rodent management in an ecologically sensitive way on the MUSE grounds, and $200 buys one raised bed with soil and seeds to grow organic vegetables for the students’ lunches.
