A Tee for Barneys

When I won the Barneys Earth day Competition for most sustainable design they sent me six Loomstate TEES.

In Six colors. A real Tee-party!

I sent one back. After I messed with it. After I cut it up, washed it in the ocean. Sewed tones of blue beach plastic around the neck.

Then I sent it back to Julie Gilhart, the fashion director who organized the design competition, as a thank you….

three new colors

We’re churning them out!

Lucia and her mother have now beaded six scarves for Plastic is Forever, soon I will have to deliver them to the Delano Base shop.
It will be hard, I’m so attached, picking each morsel of plastic, shaping and drilling it, the excitement of getting them back from Lucia, taking their pictures on the beach, they’re a part of me, and I don’t really want to send them into the world….

All scarves are $250.00 and available at BASE @ the Delano, Miami Beach.

Part of the proceeds of Plastic is Forever go to Oceana and you too can donate, click on logo for link…

Oceana is the largest international Ocean Protection & Restoration Environmental advocacy group dedicated to protecting and restoring the world’s oceans. They have a program in place that helps deal with the effects of the oil spill and they lobby against off – shore drilling…

two new pieces…

This morning, after dropping the kids of at school, I packed my camera, two new samples and the letters for my new logo – Plastic is Forever – into my little blue back pack, jumped on my bike and rode to the beach. It was already hot, like 83, so first I swam, then I shot my pix, as people came by, a woman in a French striped tee walking her terrier, an old couple holding hands, a few buff guys, including one who came right up to me, and while running said, “good morning, looking beautiful,”

Oh, I love working on this new collection!

The first scarf beaded by Lucia and her mother Sandra. Looking great, I’m happy….

and a new, large and chunky, neckpiece…

and then the logo made from bits of plastic that resemble letters, for my new e-commerce site, plasticisforevershop.com , hopefully launched soon although its a bugger figuring it all out, like I did half the site and then I realized the template I was using did not allow for ordering different sizes… F@$&*K

Starting all over…now…
