This week’s “Project Runway All Stars” episode, “Green Dress for the Red Carpet,” gave the designers a chance to work with eco-friendly fabrics and dabble in sustainable practices.

Designers found out about the challenge by meeting the show’s host, Carolyn Murphy, at the High Line, a popular park in New York City, which was used as inspiration for the challenge. Originally an elevated railway line, the High Line was recycled into a park by Joshua David and Robert Hammond, co-founders of Friends of the High Line. It’s quite beautiful.

The eight remaining designers had to make a red carpet dress in an environmentally friendly way by using Air Dye fabrics that are created with virtually no water or power. They also reused embellishments from previous challenges demonstrating recycling.

“This reduces the environmental impact of your design, but without comprising on style,” Murphy explained to the contestants.

Designer Laura Kathleen Planck won the challenge with her jumpsuit (shown above), and as part of her win host Murphy will wear it on the red carpet.

It’s great to see “Project Runway” uniting style and the environment. Hopefully, the show will incorporate more sustainable challenges!

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
