Social Roundup: Girl Power!
This week saw the super art-savvy and creative female alumni of the series come out to shine: campaigning for sustainable designs, playing to the crowds at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and promoting the British Film Industry.
Emma Watson not only began her press tour for Regression but also unveiled her Green Carpet challenge to great fanfare from her fashion followers and sustainable design supporters.
Regram @sarahslutsky Kicking off Regression! We ❤️ our rail! Inspired to consider the whole process of creating a fashion look, we are thinking about all the people, pieces and moving parts! This rack includes designers that are considering local craft and production, artisan skills, the environment, sustainability and the longevity of fashion!
Regram @sarahslutsky Day 2 kicked off with this @WesGordon dress! Love the print which was created in collaboration with London based artist and then produced in New York and Italy! @AlexanderWhite shoes are crafted by hand by artisans in Italy. Alex does not use fur and refuses to use chemical agents that could harm the environment! @Wwake jewelry uses recycled gold whenever possible, and our diamonds are either destruction-free antiques OR conflict-free stones and has developed an in-house studio practice with proper ventilation systems to protect employees health! #PayItForward
She also released a new #HeForShe campaign video that starred quite a number of familiar faces from the fashion industry.

Natalia Tena similarly joined the campaign circuit to fund her latest album, Tropical Gypsies. Molotov Jukebox is of course offering quite the the trove of rewards for any backers.

… but before then she can certainly take pride in this small victory.
Meanwhile, Helena Bonham-Carter was spotted with her original parasol from the film Room With a View as she helped launch the British Museum’s BFI Love!

Last but not least, J.K. Rowling proved once again that she will always be a proud and doting mother when it comes to her wizard children. Warts and all.
So proud of my boys. Even after all these years, they still want to kick each other's arses. pic.twitter.com/nwQI7s4jka
