Hagworthingham’s internationally renowned sustainable fashion designer, Sanyukta Shrestha, dazzles on the red carpet
Hagworthingham’s internationally renowned sustainable fashion designer Sanyukta Shrestha and her daughter Ameya stole the red carpet at the London world premiere of Pinocchio by coordinating sustainable statement outfits.
The star-studded red carpet was walked by A-list Hollywood actress Cate Blanchett and the film’s cast during the 66th BFI London Film Festival on Saturday (October 15) at the Royal Festival Hall in London.
Known as Greta of Wedding World and Green Goddess, Sanyukta’s dresses have been admired on the red carpets at the Oscars, the BAFTAs and Cannes, and were recently seen at Tom Cruise’s Top Gun World Premiere Red Carpet in London in May.
On Saturday night, she wore an intricate, custom-made sustainable dress by Sanyukta Shrestha – an asymmetric corset dress with pink and black puff sleeves made from recycled vegan silk and bamboo, handmade in Nepal to empower women through sustainable projects.
The designer was accompanied by her eight-year-old daughter, Ameya, who was elegantly dressed in a made-to-measure matching silk dress.
Ameya is the youngest British Nepalese to attend the world premiere red carpet for the first time and the aspiring artist ballerina was also joined by her agent Abi Kingley-Parker of Boston-based AKP Management Agency to show her support.
Also in attendance were Pinocchio film co-stars Christoph Waltz, David Bradley, Gregory Mann and Burn Gorman, as well as director Guillermo del Toro and his wife Kim Morgan.
Sanyukta recently made history when her sustainable couture dress Pippa—one-of-a-kind made from 40-year-old newspapers found under the floorboards of her home and made with the help of organic Nepalese handwoven cotton and 3,000 Swarovski crystals—was one of ten curated one-of-a-kind pieces selected to exhibit at the You Choose exhibition at the Fashion Museum, Bath – becoming the first Nepalese woman to be documented in world fashion history.
