The Goodwood Revival – along with the annual Festival of Speed and Glorious Goodwood – are the very first motor sport events in the world to successfully be certified to the International Standard for Event Sustainability Management, ISO 20121. To mark the exceptional achievement of its ISO 20121 certification, Goodwood has commissioned leading independent South Coast fashion designer and recycling specialist Daisy Harris-Burland of Dumpster Design to create a wearable Revival-inspired eco-friendly dress.

Daisy Harris-Burland is no stranger to creating couture fashion pieces from reclaimed materials, and she has created a one-off vintage-style paper dress for Goodwood – in the spirit of 1948-1966 Goodwood Revival era – made entirely out of a surplus of 180 recycled Goodwood Revival information leaflets. The Goodwood paper brochure dress took Daisy 28 hours of work over a three week period to make.  It is a different departure from her other creations, made from a variety of recycled materials, including deck chairs and kitchen towels, for a highly bespoke eco-friendly approach to fashion.

Inspired by her love of old cars and all things retro, including her Morris Minor and unusual Fiat Twin Cam-powered Harbaron Special, which she lovingly saved from a scrap yard, Daisy said: ‘I just love cars and engines, and many of my couture dresses are inspired by engine line drawings.  I’ve been coming to Goodwood since I raced a green powered go-kart around the famous circuit whilst still at school some years ago.’

Tickets, grandstand seats, camping and other products for the 2013 Goodwood Revival can be purchased via the Goodwood website (www.goodwood.com/motorsport/), or the Ticket Hotline as follows: Telephone: +44 (0)1243 755055.
