This year, Matilda de Angelis wears a mid-length Prada Re-Nylon cocktail dress made from Aquafil’s ECONYL® regenerated nylon yarn. The yarn is derived from a variety of plastic waste, from post-consumer carpets to marine plastic debris such as ghost fishing nets collected by initiatives including Healthy Seas, winner of the 2019 GCFA Circular Economy award.

Together with other waste such as fishing nets, fabric scraps they have been transformed into ECONYL® regenerated nylon for interior and fashion products.
