The Duchess of Cambridge is set to put her sartorial status to good use, as the royal is lending support to a new sustainability project.

For the first time in its history, 31 designers and 26 artisans from the Commonwealth's 52 countries will unite to create eco-friendly fashion.

And the aim of the initiative, is to promote a collaborative and sustainable work ethic across the globe.

Aptly named the Commonwealth Fashion Exchange, the 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.

And the initiative has been given the royal stamp of approval, as the Duchess of Cambridge and Sophie, the Countess of Wessex will attend the London Fashion Week exhibition.

According to Secretary-General of the Commonwealth, Rt. Hon. Patricia Scotland QC, the initiative has 'collaboration and partnership at its heart' and will hopefully make 'sustainability and fairness very real and tangible'.

And for those hoping to catch a glimpse of the sustainable collection, the exhibition will be made public at Australia House on February 21st.
