LONDON (AFP) - Blondie star Debbie Harry took to the London catwalk on Monday to support sustainable fabrics created by VIN + OMI, designers experimenting with everything from environmentally-friendly latex to leather-style mushrooms.
Draped in a golden gown and flanked by the design duo, the singer said the world had reached a "tipping point" and desperately needed to tackle waste.
"I think that they have a great purpose and a great focus in trying to make these sustainable fabrics that are part of the future," the 72-year-old musician told AFP.
"I think it's very important for everybody to recognise it and should be involved in it; because we all are inevitably," she added.
Harry was speaking after walking in VIN + OMI's Spring/Summer 2018 collection, ahead of London Fashion Week starting on Friday.
