Celebrating the best in sustainable fashion since 2017, Eco Age’s Green Carpet Fashion Awards held a virtual ceremony to honor those in fashion who are committed to sustainable efforts in their work as well as the fashion industry as a whole.

With an introduction from Robert Downey Jr., narration by Colin Firth, and a few special musical performances, the night was filled with fashion elite and film favorites alike, all coming together to promote hope for a sustainable future. Speakers and honorees were virtually broadcast against a lush backdrop of thriving flora and fauna, a beautiful image of what our world could look like if major industries, including the fashion industry, recognized and cut down on their negative ecological impacts.
