Anything but Ordinary
(NEW YORK) Everyone is up to their elbows in Earth Week--and though producing new, organic and sustainable styles is certainly a step, what of the old? L.A. vintage mecca The Way We Wore will launch their Out of the Ordinary project tomorrow by asking fashion designers to repurpose vintage (and not the so-old-it’s-cool again style) clothing into modern, one-of-a-kind creations.
Emily Current and Meritt Elliott of Current/Elliott, Cynthia Vincent, Jeremy Scott, Juan Carlos Obando, Kevan Hall, Lloyd Klein, Project Runway alums Nick Verreos and Rami Kashou and more are participating in the initiative by creating something lovely and new from worn-out goods. The designers will be supported by more than a few bold-face names; rumor has it the likes of Drew Barrymore, Mandy Moore, Emma Roberts, and Lindsay Lohan will be attending tomorrow’s kickoff party at the boutique, hosted by Dita Von Teese and Debi Mazar. The items will be sold exclusively on eBay with 100% of the proceeds benefiting Future Fashion, an Earth Pledge initiative.
