Samata attends 91st Annual Academy Awards

Samata styled by @AlbrightFashionLibrary for Oscars 2019. The Albright Fashion Library is a real ecological fashion secret. Somewhere top stylists and celebrities go when they want something different for the red carpet. To the archive of more than 35,000 items from off-the-runway couture to vintage-wear,  the model of the Albright Fashion Library is one of great sustainability allowing clothes to live in the world instead of sitting in closets, greatly reducing waste in both resources and money spent in the fashion industry. Irene made the choice years ago to move away from furs and unsustainable materials as much as possible. Find out more here.
