The Duchess of Cambridge is reflecting her fashion-conscious attitude by supporting a new sustainability project across the Commonwealth countries.

It’s the first time in history where 31 designers and 26 artisans from the 52 Commonwealth countries will come together to design and create eco-friendly clothing. The goal of the project, named Commonwealth Fashion Exchange, is to promote a sustainable work ethic worldwide.

According to Harper’s Bazaar writer Danielle Fowler: “[T]he project will see designers from each country partner up to create one-of-a-kind looks which will then be showcased at a reception in Buckingham Palace during London Fashion Week.

“The project, championed by Eco-Age founder Livia Firth, will see the likes of Burberry and Stella McCartney fly the sartorial flag for the UK while Karen Walker will represent New Zealand.”

Among attendees will be Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge herself, and Sophie, the Countess of Wessex.

You’ll also have a chance to see the collection as it will be open to the public at Australia House on February 21.
