Fashion for Conservation: Inspiracion Del Peru

23 May

On May 11th Fashion for Conservation took place at the Metropolist.  This show’s proceeds were donated to Hoja Nueva, a Seattle-Peru based charity, which benefits the conservation of the largest unprotected rainforest.

Many of the designers showed us bold patterns and bright colors.

A few of the designers were Claudia Falconi, whose handmade designs are inspired by Peru, Las Polleras De Agus who gave us colorful Peruvian skirts, and Beyond Threads, who uses natural sustainable Fibers, also inspired by Peru.

My favorite designer was Beyond Threads. The patterns were simple, sophisticated and had a lot of earthy tones. I could see myself wearing the collection to work.

I was unable to stay for the second Fashion Show, which showed us Couture. There are several photos that give us a peek at that show. I’ll add a few below. Amazing designs.

There was also a silent auction with Peruvian bowls, art, jewelery and much more up for auction. This event raised over 15,000 dollars. For more info on Hoja Nueva, click here.
