Besides empowering messages from eco-luminaries and performances by singers such as Sheila E., designer Oliver Tolentino took a turn on the catwalk. One of the couturiers featured at Global Green’s Gorgeous & Green Gala in December, Tolentino specializes in uncommon fabrics such as piña (derived from pineapple fibers), abaca (banana trees), water-lily leaves, jute, and raw-silk cocoons.

Designer Oliver Tolentino is dedicated to preserving the centuries-old traditions of his native Philippines.

Tolentino, who works with a team of sewers in Los Angeles and Manila, is dedicated to preserving the centuries-old traditions of his native Philippines. His beautifully draped gowns often feature extensive embellishments in the form of recycled beads, sequins, and lace.

But Tolentino wasn’t the only ecologically minded designer represented that evening. Tron: Legacy actress Serinda Swan wore a gray jersey dress by Urban Zen, while Beth Doane of Rain Tees made a cameo appearance.
