Dresses made from recycled plastic bottle and fabrics have put sustainability in the spotlight at a high-profile event in New York.
Actress Emma Watson, star of the Harry Potter films, wore a dress made from ‘Newlife’ fabric, a unique yarn engineered from used plastic bottles sourced, processed and spun into yarns in Italy.
The actress wore the dress to the MetGala, an annual fundraising event which took place on May 2nd. It was designed and manufactured by Calvin Klein along with Eco Age, a sustainability brand.
Every element of Watson’s look was reportedly considered from an ethical and aesthetic perspective, including smaller details such as the zips, also manufactured from recycled plastic.
Watson said that she was "proud to say" her clothes were "truly sustainable".
