Designer and Winner of Dress Contest - With a Twist - to Lead Suzy Amis Cameron's Organization
Los Angeles, CA (August 3, 2011) - Suzy Amis Cameron today announced that London-based designer, entrepreneur, and 2011 Red Carpet Green Dress winner Samata Angel will serve as the organization's Global Campaign Director.
Red Carpet Green Dress is an international dress competition - with a twist. The challenge is to create an Oscar worthy dress made entirely of sustainable materials. The winner, chosen among hundreds of international participants, gets his or her design featured as part of the Academy Award celebrations on a red - or green - carpet.
"Samata embodies everything Red Carpet Green Dress needs in a Global Campaign Director," said Suzy Amis Cameron. "Not only did she win last year's competition with her stunning gown, but she is among the select few whose design capacity matches her business savvy. Working with Samata has been a privilege, and I have no doubt that she will grow Red Carpet Green Dress and its critical mission of sustainable design."
"Winning Red Carpet Green Dress and working with Suzy has been a dream come true. It is a privilege to continue this work as Global Campaign Director, particularly at such an exciting moment in fashion," said Samata Angel. "Right now, there is a hunger for clothing that is high quality and low impact. By calling on designers to create the ultimate dress for the ultimate event, we have a unique opportunity to show the world that sustainable fashion can be beautiful fashion. As a designer, I hope to give others the resources they need to make clothing that is both beautiful and sustainable."
The competition benefits MUSE School CA and MUSE Global - a non-profit Suzy Amis Cameron and her sister Rebecca Amis founded to provide resources to partner schools around the world. This includes assistance for basic school operations, curriculum development, and nutritious lunches for every student.
