Fabric Made from Recycled Plastic Bottles Makes Red Carpet Appearance
Lavia and Colin Firth stun with recycled and reused outfits as they promote responsible consumption in the 21st century
You’re already familiar with fleeces and other rugged fabrics made from recycled plastic bottles, but Livia Firth’s gown for this year’s Met Ball shows that eco-friendly fashion isn’t just for Columbia Sportswear anymore.
The dress was made entirely out of recycled plastic bottles, redesigned and broken down into the fibers to sew a dark red dress. Firth’s design explored the event’s Eastern theme while simultaneously exposing the flexibility of recycled fibers using Newlife Fabric.
