Green Carpet Fashion Awards 2020

On the 10th of October 2020 there was the fourth edition of the Green Carpet Fashion Awards 2020. It is a ceremony dedicated to successes that public figures or renowned brands in the fashion sector achieve in terms of environmental commitment. This event saw the involvement of various movie and fashion stars, who walked on an all-digital red carpet.

But let’s start from the beginning. 

Pandemic and red carpet 

The ongoing worldwide pandemic has obliged all the productive activities to change and adapt to these difficult times. Fashion was not exception. In fact the fashion shows took place mainly remotely, often taking us directly into the homes of the stars. Also the green carpet fashion show had to take place remotely, on a completely virtual red carpet.
