When I started Red Carpet Green Dress last year, the goal was to build environmental awareness while helping to educate young people around the world
Los Angeles, Calif. (PRWEB) February 13, 2011
Suzy Amis Cameron today announced the winner of her Red Carpet Green Dress contest (http://www.redcarpetgreendress.com) - an international competition, benefiting MUSE School CA and MUSE Global, to create a dress made of sustainable materials. The 2011 winner is Samata Angel, a London-based fashion entrepreneur who will be flown to Los Angeles to have her own model walk the "red" (green) carpet at the Global Green pre-Oscar party on February 23rd in Hollywood.
The Red Carpet Green Dress competition benefits MUSE Global and MUSE School California - a non-profit Amis Cameron founded to provide resources to partner schools around the world. This includes assistance for basic school operations, curriculum development, and nutritious lunches for every student.
"When I started Red Carpet Green Dress last year, the goal was to build environmental awareness while helping to educate young people around the world," said Amis Cameron. "How fitting that this year's winner is a talented woman from London with roots in Ghana. Samata Angel has a keen eye for design and a deep appreciation for sustainability. I can't wait to see her stunning design at this year's Global Green pre-Oscar party."
Samata and her model will be brought to Los Angeles to stay for four nights at the beautiful Georgian Hotel in Santa Monica, receive a private tour of MUSE School CA, and meet with Suzy Amis Cameron and her husband, Academy Award® winning director and producer James Cameron.
"I am thrilled to be this year's Red Carpet Green Dress Winner," said Samata Angel. "When I heard about the opportunity to design a dress that was also sustainable, I knew I had to participate. I've always loved designing womenswear, and as we deal with real environmental challenges, I believe good design that is also beautiful can be part of the solution. What an honor to be selected, and I look forward to showing my work on the green carpet. This is an amazing opportunity for me!"
