Fashion Ethic Meets Nick Verreos
Candice here. So I just got back from a party here in Seattle where the very amiable Nick Verreos from Project Runway fame was helping raise some funds for charity by auctioning off some of his original designs. It is always encouraging to see designers doing what they can to raise awareness about issues or raise funds to support things they care about. Events like this, designers giving back to community organizationa, and all CFDA has done to fight AIDS, are things that make me proud to be part of the fashion industry.
Speaking of giving money back to community, pictured on the left here is Sara Seumae, designer of SPUN, a 100% certified organic cotton line available at FashionEthic.com. Her line is part of 1% For the Planet, donating 1% of revenue to environmental causes. That's me on the right in the Ryann dress (which, by the way, Nick said he noticed as soon as I came in due to the fab cutouts...and yes, it can be yours on sale right now at FashionEthic.com ;) We flank the lovely Nick Verreos, who is wearing the greatest shawl neck cardigan from Philip Lim, which, while not at Fashion Ethic is somewhat similar to a SPUN piece coming this Fall. Quite the coincidence! You heard it here first!
