Couture for a Cause | Juicy Couture & VOGUE Come Out for Free Arts NYC

We love shopping and sipping in the name of doing good. Last night Jamie Tisch and Lucy Sykes Rellie hosted an early evening of holiday cocktails, mocktails and cookies at Juicy Couture on Madison to benefit Free Arts NYC. The nonprofit provides creative arts programs to low income, abused, homeless and neglected children of New York City. With Brendan Fallis on the decks, fashionable faces like Amanda Ross, Anne Vincent, Emma Snowdon-Jones, Claude Davis, Liz Hopfan and Denny Lee came out to support the cause.

Creative freedom and artistic opportunity are things that all of us at Tattly are grateful for. We are thrilled to partner with Free Arts NYC, a not-for-profit program that provides arts-based mentoring for K through 12 students. These awesome Custom Tattly by Kenny Scharf will be given out to attendees at Kidsfest, an annual celebration taking place on October 18th at Pioneer Works in Brooklyn. See you there!

From 1992 – 2008, the DKNY mural dominated Soho’s intersection of Houston and Broadway becoming an iconic presence in the city’s urban landscape. This summer, DKNY is reviving this mural not only in New York City but in 9 cities around the world: London, Paris, Milan, Dubai, Kuwait, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Seoul. DKNY has selected 10 artists to reinterpret the idea of a mural as sculptures, paintings or projections starting with How & Nosm and Amy Gartrell who created the New York editions of this project.

Free Arts NYC Auction  x Swarovski Cystal Artworks

纽约艺术慈善机构 Free Arts NYC是一个致力于为一些无法获得学习艺术的儿童提供艺术基础教育的非盈利性机构。 该机构常常通过拍卖筹集资金,为相关儿童提供长期艺术的教育项目。

每一年,美国时尚设计师协会CFDA提名者都会将创作的艺术品在纽约和网络上进行慈善拍卖,收益捐助于Free Arts NYC艺术慈善机构。今年的设计师包括CFDA提名的女装设计师Rosie Assoulin和Ryan Roche, 男装设计师Orley, Ovadia & Sons and Hood by Air, and Eva Fehren, 以及饰品设计Paul Andrew 和Mansur Gavriel,为拍卖会带来了主题为”Disruption”(乱入)的镶嵌着施华洛世奇水晶和宝石的装饰艺术品。

这个项目最好玩的地方是,参与的时装设计师被分配到不同类型的设计主题,家居器物装饰等等,作品不再局限于时装,设计出的艺术品跳出专业的框框,无论从造型还是概念上看都非常独特。

I’m running the NYC Marathon November 6, 2011.

That’s less 9 days away!

But I need to raise funds for the organization I’m running for! I want to raise all $5K, but now I’ll be happy if I can covered the minimum promised ($3K). I need your help!

Watch the video, or skip the video and donate! If you want to enter the contest for a chance to win a $100 Visa Gift Card or one of 10+ $10 Amazon Cards, re-blog this post AS IS (so people can re-blog and understand what’s going on. Feel free to add your commentary to the bottom).

Wither you got tumblr or not, I’m still trying to raise money for a cause. So, if you don’t have tumblr, but want to promote (and get a chance to win), follow the directions at thoughtremixer.com/run.

I figured if this post gets reblogged at least about 2,000 times, I’ll reach some people who are willing to donate and cover the amount I promised to the organization.

Now, if you can’t donate using your credit card and want to use Paypal, please use the chip.in link. But USE THIS AS A LAST DITCH EFFORT, NOT THE FIRST!

Prizes will be given a week after the marathon.

Please help me out and I promise you this won’t be the last time I’ll be giving myself to the universe.
