Live in Tents: Tunji Dada SS/11 & Upcoming Events!

Eco Hookups reports on Tunji Dada’s SS/11 collection, Furbished: Refurbished. The new line addresses the issues of waste management, sustenance awareness and the promotion of artisan methods. 70% of the products were made of Army Vintage Tents, and Recoup Cotton Shirts! I love the marbleized look of the re-purposed canvas shirt and slacks.

• Halloween is around the corner. Speaking of costumes, if you want to start off your day with a deeper understanding of the symbology of what we wear and you are in the Boston area, I’ll be speaking at 11am, Oct 31st at the Boston Vegetarian Food Festival. I’ll be doing a 45 minutes presentation on “Fashion and Animals” and maybe even work-shopping how to properly throw a can of red paint on helpless old ladies in fur. Just kidding. Hope to see you there!

• I’ll also be speaking at the Oct 24th Walk for Farm Animals in Central Park. If you haven’t already signed up, what are you waiting for? It’s happening all across the country. Join NBA champion, wellness guru and proud Brooklyn native John Salley as he comes home to the Big Apple to lead hundreds of walkers in the do-good event of the year. NYC speakers include Farm Sanctuary President and Co-founder Gene Baur, our Walk marshal and NBA champ John Salley, Yours Truly: The Discerning Brute founder Joshua Katcher and vegan fashion force Leanne Hilgart of Vaute Couture. Plus, musician Jenn London will be performing live!
