Emma Watson is Net-a-Porter’s cover girl for ethical fashion

Emma Watson has recently graced the pages of the The Edit, the online fashion magazine produced by Net-a-Porter (a leading fashion retailer). In her featured interview, Emma Watson not only speaks out about the importance of ethical fashion but also models several gorgeous gowns created by leading designers for the Green Carpet Challenge, which encouraged designers to create sustainably produced gowns worthy of being worn on the red carpet.

As a cause close to her heart, Emma speaks passionately in the interview about the importance of sustainable fashion:

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 speciality and not a base standard. Why is it special to have something you know wasn’t made under terrible condidtions by a 12-year-old girl for 20 pence an hour?

Be sure to check out the full interview to hear more of Emma’s thoughts on fashion and see her in the stunning Green Carpet Challenge gowns!

I've been making magic at MuggleNet since 2012, when I first joined the staff as a News intern. I've never wavered from the declaration in my childhood journal, circa October 2000: "I LOVE Harry Potter! If I clean my room, my mom says she'll make me a dinner a wizard would love!" Proud Gryffindor; don't hate.
