Restore Clothing in Yesterday's News do-gooder design challenge

Yesterday was the day of the first-of-its kind green catwalk and workshop event in New York City sponsored by Nestle/Purina Yesterday's News. I worked until 1.30 am that day to finish our final garment. It's a double swing coat made from dated newspaper fused and laminated to work as a raincoat. The coat features among other amazing details a hand woven plaid created with New York Times Headlines.
The lining  represents the multi-colored photography that contrasts the monochrome writing of a newspaper.
Each participating designer had the great opportunity to show in total four outfits of his/her collection including the newspaper design.
The paper garments will be auctioned off between now and September 29, 2010.The proceeds from the highest bid for each newspaper design and handbag will go to the designer's charity of choice. In addition Purina's Yesterday's News Brand will make a donation in the amount of 6000$ to each charity.
