The GCC was founded by Livia Firth and British journalist Lucy Siegle in December 2009 when Colin Firth received a Golden Globe nomination for Tom Ford’s “A Single Man.” Since then, Livia Firth has worn only gowns using eco-friendly fabrics, including one made from pieces of her husband’s old Tom Ford suits.
