Suzy: I started a school called muse elementary and it’s canyon. It’s a non profit school and 50% of our children are on financial aid and we also have global program and we have a school in Thailand that we support 100% and it’s full of children that have come over the boarder to escape genocide. So we really do have to do a lot of fundraising and one of the ideas came up was to create a dress contest and it’s called red carpet green dress and the main criteria is to create Oscar worthy gowns nade all sustainable fabrics and the winner is Julian Grant who’s right here next to me and all of the proceeds from Red Carpet Green Dress go to Elementary and the global program.
Well you know we had entries from all over the world. We had them coming in from South America and from Australia and from Italy and from the United States obviously just really all over the place and they were put out in front of me and I did not know the gender I didn’t know anybodies age. I didn’t know if they were a student or not and I didn’t know their nationality so I just sifted through them and the one that came to top was Julian.
Julian: A lot, a lot of research I had no idea that it was so difficult to create a red carpet worthy gown that was sustainable. There’s virtually no fabrics that are sustainable fabrics that are red carpet worthy so it was quite a challenge.
Suzy: I have to say that this is one of the millions of reasons why I love this man standing next to me so much is because you may or may not know this but this is also he’s mission statement as well so I would like to now ask Jim to introduce the winner of Red Carpet Green Dress.
James: Thank you baby you just hold off didn’t you. Good for you. Well I don’t think we’ve said that here’s the dress. I think that it obviously took and on Sunday night that’s going to be on her and I want to very proudly walk with her into the academy awards together and you know Suzy has told you all about the contest and what the goals of the contest are and I would jus like to add to that, that obviously we’re not going to save the planet with a single dress but what she’s done is and through this contest in wearing the dress on Sunday you know raise awareness or maybe throw a challenge out to the fashion industry to the clothing industry to think about where there materials come from. Think about where their dye’s come from and the down stream effect of those chemicals and so on and just to be more responsible in the way that everybody all of us need to be more responsible to our planet.
