Yesterday’s News Green Catwalk Event

In keeping with the theme of the challenge we presented a black look, a white look, and a red look from our current collection.
[BLACK: Gathered Shoulder Sleeveless T and the 5 Pocket Pull-on Jeans on Jacquie. WHITE: Fitted Long Sleeve Wrap Hoodie, Tank (with built-in body fabric bra), and Meditation/Lounge Full Pant with earrings and a necklace by Kenny Hwang on Toni B. RED: Draped-back Hooded Zip Front Gown in red, recycled polyester on Sarah Anne.  All photos by Alex Whatton.]

Giedre is wearing Yesterday’s News – Newspaper Coat by Anthony Lilore of RESTORE ™ Clothing and newspaper & resin jewelry by Kenny Hwang.
The Hell’s Kitchen Plaid (named for our NYC neighborhood) is formed ALMOST entirely from the section headings of months of Saturday and Sunday copies of Yesterday’s New(s) York Times laminated to pages from the Arts & Leisure, Financial, Business, Wedding, Obituary, and Real Estate sections of the New York Times (the Hometown paper of the RESTORE ™ Clothing Team). The coat is double-breasted and has two full circle swings as the bottom section. The hand-painted one-of-a-kind lining is the artistic work of Frank Lilore and is meant to call attention to the vibrant colors of today’s multimedia news which, while Read All Over is anything but Black and White.
We were honored to be in the company of these eco-fashion pioneers’ designs:

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.

As another model said:  You look hot!

Toni looks great and feels very comfortable wearing the wrapp knit hoodie with extra long narrow sleeves
and flaired knit pants

Jacque shows how sexy a knit jeans and a muscle shirt inspired top can look 

The red knit gown in recycled polyester with hood and extensive backcowl  was a huge  hit
