Probably the most provocative gowns were made by Tennessee-based design house, Prophetik. We loved the hemp silk gowns with exposed hardware in the back and artichoke layered skirts, hand-dyed with Japanese Indigo from the designer’s garden.

We also loved the white winter cocktail dresses of San Francisco-based designer Cari Borja; and in particular, the hooded winter frock dress with full tea length skirt. Cari Borja’s glittery off-shoulder sea foam dress was also a favorite.

Oliver Tolentino made custom gowns specifically for the show, using pineapple fiber cloth and ancient weaving techniques from his native Philippines. We especially loved the effervescent shear layers of his full-length ivory gowns.

It’s clear to see that the Gorgeous & Green eco-fashion show is an annual favorite of fashionista philanthropists and eco-conscious celebrities alike, and we look forward to the next one!
