Emma Watson Introduces Her People Tree Collection during the Prince Charles' garden party


TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE


As we reported a few weeks ago, not only is Emma Watson continuing her successful collaboration with People Tree for a third season but her S/S '11 collection got a Royal seal of approval from none other than Prince Charles himself! The collection of 100% organic and Fairtrade-certified gingham cotton day dresses and hand-embroidered cute separates was shown for the first time last Saturday during People Tree’s presentation at A Garden Party To Make A Difference. Part of the Prince of Wales ‘Start’ initiative, a wider 12-day eco-festival that sets to promote sustainable living, the show took place in the grounds of Marlborough House. "I've been given a lot in my life and I have had so many fantastic opportunities,” she said on her collaboration with the label, “It's really important to me that I try and give something back. I wanted to find the right thing and working with People Tree is so special and rewarding and the best way I can do that at the moment."


Safia Minney, the founder and CEO of People Tree, was clearly impressed with Emma’s commitment; "Despite juggling her studies in America and finishing off the final Harry Potter movies Emma still amazingly found time to give advise on shapes, colours and fabrics she thought people her age would like” she says. “Emma was really keen to learn more about the benefits of Fair Trade and organic fashion so took the time to visit Bangladesh and see this first hand. Emma had a lot of input into this collection and it's a little more grown up to what proceeded it."

Even though Ms Watson and her getting-more-adorable-every-minute pixie haircut were not present – Emma is currently studying at Brown University in the States – a short and sweet message from her greeted the audience, click play below for an exclusive look at Emma introducing her collection and yes, check out that haircut yet one more time!

Comme nous vous l'avons dit il y a quelques semaines, non seulement Emma Watson continue sa brilliante collaboration avec People Tree pour une troisième saison, mais sa collection Printemps/Eté 11 a été reconnue par nul autre que le Prince Charles en personne! La collection, certifiée 100% organique et équitable, avec des robes de jour vichy et des mignons hauts brodés à la main étaient montrés pour la première fois samedi dernier pendant la présentation de People Tree à la Garden Party To Make A Difference. Faisant partie d'une initiative 'Start' du Prince de Galles, un festival écologique de 12 jours pour promouvoir le durable, le show a été organisé sur les sols de Marlborough House. "J'ai reçu beaucoup dans ma vie et j'ai eu tellement de fantastiques opportunités," dit-elle à propos de sa collection avec la marque, "C'est vraiment important pour moi d'essayer de donner quelque chose en retour. Je voulais trouver la bonne chose et travailler avec People Tree est tellement spécial et gratifiant et la meilleure façon de le faire pour le moment."

Safia Minney, la fondatrice et PDG de People Tree, était clairememnt impréssionnée par l'engagement d'Emma. "Malgré le fait de jongler entre ses études en Amérique et finir de filmer Harry Potter, Emma a trouvé le temps de donner son avis sur les coupes, les couleurs et les textures qu'elle pensait pourraient plaire aux gens de son âge" dit-elle. "Emma voulait vraiment en apprendre plus sur les bénéfices de la mode équitable et organique donc elle a prit le temps de visiter le Bangladesh et a vu ça personellement. Emma a mis beaucoup d'elle même dans cette collection et c'est un peu plus adulte que la collection précédente."

Même si Ms Watson et coupe courte qui-devient-plus-adorable-à-chaques-minutes n'étaient pas là - Emma est en ce moment à l'université de Brown aux Etats-Unis pour étudier - un message d'elle, court et charmant, a accueilli l'audience.


"Salut, je suis Emma Watson. Je suis tellement contente que People Tree montrera sa collection Printemps/Eté 11 à la Garden Party To Make A Difference. Je pense que l'initiative du Prince de Galles est une idée brilliante et, ouais, j'en suis ravie."

Rumored new movie for emma said...

An individual approached us stating they had breaking news that Rob’s next project has been green-lighted and signed! The details I received from “The Insider” are listed below:

The film is a remake of the 2004 film “Dark Arc”.

A major studio is behind the project.

I was given the names and personal cell phone numbers of the potential director and one of the producers.

Potential co-stars are Emma Watson and Casey Affleck as the three lead characters with Rob.

Rob and Emma Watson have signed but Casey Affleck is still in talks.
