Suzy Amis Cameron, founder of the ethical fashion initiative Red Carpet Green Dress (RCGD), was honored by MAISON-DE-MODE.COM at the first annual gala at the “Celebrate Sustainable Style” event held at The Sunset Tower.

Red Carpet Green Dress is an internationally recognized organization that combines the worlds of fashion and sustainability. Currently in its ninth year, the campaign was conceived by Suzy Amis Cameron during the press tour for her husband, James Cameron's film “Avatar”. Her hope is to draw attention to the importance of more sustainable practices in fashion by challenging designers from around the world to think about fashion in an eco-friendly context. The campaign also raises funds for MUSE School CA, a non-profit educational organization that Amis Cameron co-founded in Calabasas, California.
