The pieces, which were showcased at the event, were made from sustainable materials such as organic cotton, silk and rattan, certified by EcoluxeLondon, a not-for-profit platform that supports luxury with ethos.
One of the most standout ensembles at the event was a real seaweed dress created by Greek designer Joy Lempesi. The outfit, which took nearly 80 hours of painstaking work, was primarily based on a silk and tulle lining, decoratively topped with original seaweed appliqué designs.
Earlier, similar eco-friendly promotional events were organized in cities like Vancouver, New York, London, Berlin and Moscow.
