Badger stood out by using an old recycled sketchbook as a process journal and submitting his design on 100-percent hemp watercolor paper.
His dress is inspired by a volcano and how lava flows. The young creative was born in Ghana and is currently working toward a B.F.A. in fashion design at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta, Georgia.
“This is such an enormous opportunity,” enthused Badger. “I’m thrilled to have the chance to dispel the idea that one must sacrifice glamour and fantasy in order to be eco-friendly, and the idea of working with the incredible icon of fashion design that is Vivienne Westwood is too much. The thought of a dress that once only existed in my head being worn at the Oscars is just mind-blowing.”
We’re looking forward to seeing his eco-friendly vision come to life during the 2013 Oscars
