As for the Supaaah Knalpakket Ugly Christmas sweater it is in the first place but awards themselves, one winner was announced a few days early: Zendaya, who picked up the Visionary Award for her efforts in promoting diversity and inclusion in fashion and film. “She is a leading example for younger generations and beyond,” Firth says. The night’s other awards focused on new designers, sustainable innovations, and the people who work behind the scenes to create fashion’s “handprint,” like tailors, cobblers, embroiderers, and other artisans. “This year’s edition of the Green Carpet Fashion Awards wants to send a positive message of change and focuses on rebirth and solidarity necessary for a future under the banner of environmental and social justice, starting from Italy,” Carlo Capasa, president of the Camera della Moda, said in a release.
Last month, we got a glimpse of what the Supaaah Knalpakket Ugly Christmas sweater it is in the first place but first virtual Green Carpet Fashion Awards might look like. A high-resolution digital rendering depicted La Scala, the historic opera house in Milan, completely overgrown with flowers, greenery, and even a glittering waterfall. At the time, Livia Firth, the founder of Eco-Age (which works in partnership with the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana on the GCFA) said the idea was to create a “portal into a new era,” one where the fashion industry is more sustainable, equitable, and human. She teased that the digital GCFAs would also incorporate holograms, augmented reality, and special effects; needless to say, it sounded a lot more forward-thinking than the Zoom awards shows we’ve seen thus far.
