The Green Carpet Fashion Awards honor the innovators, the enthusiasts, the revolutionaries of a ground-breaking fashion world moving towards a sustainable future. For years now, CNMI has been working to implement sustainable changes, in collaboration with Italian brands and all the fashion houses that, with their many factories and plants, contribute to make the Made in Italy brand famous all over the world. We’re deeply proud of confirming this third edition of the Awards, and we’re excited about what the night will have in store

said Carlo Capasa.

At the ceremony, the Gondolieri Venezia association of Venetian gondoliers will be awarded the Eco Stewardship Award for the responsible use of wool in the creation of their uniforms.

 

We’re delighted to bestow the Eco Stewardship Award to Venice’s gondoliers. Thanks to the collaboration with The Woolmark Company and Venetian fashion house Emilio Ceccato, gondoliers have been wearing Australian Merino wool, a versatile fabric that is 100% natural and renewable

said Livia Firth.
