The many celebrities present at the “Green Carpet Fashion Awards” walked on the green carpet with the beautiful pomegranates, the symbol of the award. In total 11 prizes, all dedicated to Made in Italy, were given in “recognition not only for the best sustainable clothes, but for the whole year’s work done by the entire fashion chain,” explains Livia Firth, wife of actor Colin Firth (watch the video) and soul of Eco-Age (the British consulting firm, partner of the Camera Nazionale della Moda italiana in this project).
