Emma Watson is the perfect example of just exactly how to become a successful and respected businesswoman in Hollywood without compromising values. She has become a well articulated, role model for young people all over the world, as well as a style icon.
In keeping with Watson’s passion for ethical fashion, the actress has teamed up with Net-a-Porter to front the brand’s digital magazine THE EDIT, to showcase the site’s eco-friendly Green Carpet Collection, from designers including Christopher Kane, Burberry Prorsum, Erdem and Victoria Beckham.
Says Emma of the eco-collection, “I’ve always had this huge problem. I would love to wear garments that are ethically sourced, but there aren’t enough options for me to be able to do that realistically.”.
Watson also says of her passion for this cause “We don’t support slave labor in this country, so we shouldn’t support those conditions in other countries. I can’t wrap my head around why ethical clothing is a specialty and not a base standard. Why is it special to have something you know wasn’t made under terrible conditions by a 12-year-old girl for 20 pence and hour? It’s hard to talk about this stuff without sounding preachy.”
Definitely not preachy, but another perfect example of the beautiful young role model she has become. The Green Carpet Challenge collection is available exclusively at Net-A-Porter.com.
