D2D Sneak Preview

RECYCLED FASHIONS.
RENEWED LIVES.

Donated clothes transformed into one-of-a-kind fashion and home décor, auctioned to benefit those suffering from poverty, homelessness and domestic violence. The St. Vincent De Paul Society started a yearly design event where designers from the bay area transform donated clothing into a new garment that will be auctioned off at their yearly event and all proceeds go to helping people suffering from poverty, homelessness, and domestic violence. I was so excited to be a part of this amazing event.

The De Young Museum sponsors the event and hosts a preview for the public to come and see all the pieces for free with music and other entertainment.
It was such a blast!


This is my dress I designed for the event. I deconstructed a pant suit and silk jacquard jacket to make my dress. I also used some beads from another blouse I got from goodwill for the bead work I did on the neckline.


My friend Lauren from school came with me and Brady to the event. We had so much fun looking at all the great garments.

The committee did a wonderful job grouping all the different designs together.

It was a packed house. I can't wait to see what the auction is like.
