Art, fashion, music, tequila cocktails and delicious hors d?oeuvres from East Village Taqueria Hecho en Dumbo kicked off the Project Paz event Monday night in Soho.
Showcasing nine one-off dresses and accessories created by New York?based designers Peter Som, Anna Sui, Thakoon, Juan Carlos Obando, Christian Cota, Michael Bastian, Yigal Azro?l, Rag and Bone and Phillip Lim, Sara Beltran, Eddie Borgo and Alegandro Ingelmo, plus original art in a silent auction, some serious funds were raised in support of Ciudad Ju?rez. The common thread? Each dress was cut from one of 10 bolts of traditional, hand-woven Mexican cloth, released by The Museao Regional de Oaxaca exclusively for Project Paz.
Seeking to enable organizations that help victims in Ciudad Ju?rez rebuild their community, L-atitude is adding Mexico City to its elite list of online shopping destinations in early 2012, and will offer hard-to-find fashion items from the Mexican capital. (10% of online sales from this collection will be donated to Project Paz.)
Expect to see fun pieces that mix heritage with endurance and sultry passion. Get inspired channeling our muse Frida Kahlo, and dramatically open your wardrobe potential to Mexico?s fabled history.
