Fashion ComPassion's Wonder-Lust Art & Fashion evening!
This entry was posted on March 4, 2013 by Fashion Compassion.
In February, Fashion ComPassion and Debut Contemporary hosted WONDER-LUST, the first in a collaborative series of events which aimed to bring emerging creatives to London’s fashion and art scene. Our VIP and press launch event was held at the Debut Contemporary art gallery and showcased socially responsible fashion brands from war torn and underprivileged regions.

Fashion brands which were on display included Nawa, Numa, Palestyle, Inaaya and Lost City. Each product had been hand crafted by women artisans and told a story of beauty, history, believe and determination. Here's just some of our favourite photos from the night:
Nawa Jean clutches paired with Maia Franceschi's artwork. Inspired by Jean Shrimpton, a British fashion icon in the 1960s, these Nawa Jean clutch bags flaunt a minimalistic look, geometric shape and retro-vintage feel.
Inaaya jewellery products paired with Ewelina Kolaczek's glass artwork. This fashion brand produces limited run pieces by combining classis techniques with artisanal production.
Inaaya Reverie Durri necklace and Ba'ali earrings.
Inaaya Red Sindoor Durri necklace and Ra'ani Durri necklace.
Inaaya Zenith Durri necklace and Obsidian earrings.
Lost City scarves and handbags paired with Dan Johnson's artwork. Lost City products embody a sophisticated urban aesthetic, earth-friendly production processes and ethical business practices.
Palestyle clutches and jewellery paired with Thomas Dowdeswell's artwork. Palestyle insures that their fashion creates awareness towards the value and history of handmade Palestinian embroidery and Arabic calligraphy, thus promoting the warmth of the heritage in a trendy manner.
Palestyle Pink Glam clutch. Made with 100% Croc Embossed leather, gold-plated calligraphy plaque with Swarovski crystals and a gold chain.
