Livia Firth, founder of the Green Carpet Challenge, has just been awarded the 2012 Leader of Change by the Foundation for Social Change, for her work mixing hyper glamor and ecologically intelligent design. “People woke up sooner in the food industry, but things are starting to move in fashion too.” Livia says, “Look at all the designers who have joined in. I think people are scared of change, but it’s actually quite fun.”
