Sustainable Fashion Created by Academy Students Hits the Red Carpet
Actress Ginnifer Goodwin wore an environmentally chic
dress created by Academy of Art University students to the 20th Anniversary Environmental Media
A group of lucky Academy of Art University
college students can now add celebrity styling to their resume since actress Ginnifer
Goodwin wore their design to Sunday night’s 20th Anniversary Environmental Media Awards.
Students Priscilla Guimarais, Kumiko Haruyama, Nui Tanapornwattana, Audrey Wang and Tramaine
Tillman created a collection of sustainable dresses for a class project using processes and
practices that ensure sustainability from inception to completion. The final collection was named
1Oak (One Of A Kind).
The chic strapless dress worn by Goodwin, which falls just below the knee, is actually made
from hospital scrubs that would have normally been discarded. The scrubs have been treated, dyed
and pleated using sustainable practices.
In addition to being an outspoken vegan and gracing the covers of many magazines, Ginnifer
Goodwin is known for her roles in
He’s Just Not That Into You and the soon-to-be-released
A Single Man (Tom Ford’s directorial debut).
