British designer Samata has won the Hollywood dress design contest Red Carpet Green Dress. The winning dress was unveiled at the Global Green Pre-Oscars Party in February following a competition requiring an eco-friendly dress made from natural, organic, or recycled fabrics to be designed for the red carpet of the pre-Oscar party.
Samata, who entered the competition after seeing it on VOGUE.COM, said that “meeting and spending time with Suzy Amis Cameron was both inspirational and educational. Not only did I learn so much about ‘green’ fashion, I also have the opportunity to showcase one of my designs on the ‘green’ carpet to a high profile audience. The whole experience has opened some huge doors for me and I am just so excited and grateful.”
