Discarded to Divine Blogger Preview

4/18/2012

Back in March I went to this Discarded to Divine blogger preview in San Francisco. Discarded to Divine is where designers take leftover, discarded and donated clothing and turn them into fashionable pieces.

The fashion forward crowd and bloggers alike were invited to this preview event in San Fran to see some of the pieces that would later be featured in the actual gala and auction later this month.

I was so happy that I was able to attend because I found a ton of wonderful and creative fashions and furniture by some local designers. Also, it gave me an excuse to wear my peplum dress that I got for my birthday. 

Here are some pics from the event:
(sorry, took these with my phone, not my awesome camera)Wearing: Asos peplum dress ~ La Mer wrap watch
Designer: Sultana Lodin ~ Design: "Kaftan of Honor"
Designer: Tricia Brooks ~ Design: "Damask Cape"Designer: Stephen Kladder ~ Design: "Passing Glances"
Loved this table in the front that is designed with sketches of faces.
Designer: Diane O. ~ Design: "Chimera Chordata"Designer: Olga Shor ~ Design: "Waterloo"
~~~
These pieces come from thrown away items that people don't want anymore, and these designers turn them into brilliant pieces of art.

If you happen to be in the San Fran area then get your tickets to the actual Discarded to Divine gala and auction Thursday, April 26 at 7pm at the SF Design Center!
