A Lesson in Sustainable Fashion: 2020 BAFTA Red (Hot) Carpet Looks

Sustainable Fashion: 2020 BAFTA Sets an Eco-Friendly Dress Code – The 73rd Annual British Academy Film Awards took place on Sunday, February 2nd. Any awards show is an oasis of fashion intrigue. Still, this show proved so, perhaps more than others. That’s because of a notable dress code guideline for all in attendance: “dress sustainably.” The London College of Fashion encouraged attendees to dress vintage, recycle a previously worn outfit, rent, or buy from eco-friendly designers.
