Truly beautiful things should be worn again and again and again,” ~ Emma Watson

Monday night was the 2016 Met Ball Gala – some outfits were outrageous, some sublime – but there was one that stood out, not simply for the style but for the words of wisdom behind the fashion. Emma Watson’s custom-made Calvin Klein dress was a statement about sustainability and preservation from the actress and activist herself. In her Facebook page , Watson explained the design and fabrication of the dress: “Thank you Calvin Klein & Eco Age for collaborating with me and creating the most amazing gown. I am proud to say it is truly sustainable and represents a connection between myself and all the people in the supply chain who played a role in creating it …
Each and every part of this beautiful gown has been produced with sustainability in mind, even the components that you can’t see. The zippers on the gown are made from recycled materials and the inner bustier has been crafted from organic cotton. Conventional cotton is one of the highest impact crops, using more chemicals than any other crop in the world. Organic cotton on the other hand, is grown without the use of the most harmful chemicals and is therefore better for the environment and people working with cotton. The organic silk used in the lining of my gown is certified to a standard that guarantees the highest environmental and social standards throughout production. It is my intention to repurpose elements of the gown for future use. The trousers can be worn on their own, as can the bustier, the train can be used for a future red carpet look… I’m looking forward to experimenting with this. Truly beautiful things should be worn again and again and again.” ~ Emma Watson

    • Yes, Monica, it actually is a top and trousers with a skirt as well. I agree – it is lovely, as is the story of its creation. xx Mel
