SEEING GREEN

The program is a mirrored on “Runway to Change,” a 2008 fundraiser that amassed roughly $3 million for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. As part of the agenda, the designers will also be introduced to “Clean by Design,”, an initiative by the Natural Resources Defense Council to green the global textile supply chain.

The designers will be introduced to Clean by Design, an NRDC initiative to green the global textile supply chain.

The event will also launch an exclusive sale of Runway to Green pieces on Net-a-Porter.com, months before the collection hits stores. Funneled through the Runway to Green organization, a portion of proceeds will benefit environmental charities such as the Alliance for Climate Protection, the United Nations Environment Programme’s Billion Tree Campaign, and the NRDC.

Runway to Green will take place with Christie’s A Bid to Save the Earth in New York City on March 29 with hosts François-Henri Pinault, Salma Hayek, David and Susan Rockefeller, Graydon and Anna Carter, and Vogue. Co-styled by Tonne Goodman, Vogue’s fashion director, and Tabitha Simmons, the magazine’s contributing editor, the show will also feature jewelry by Tiffany.
