received. Vogue Magazine described his inspiration as being a group of
models that found clothing that had been discarded in 1987, and raided

It has been awhile since I was working Hollywood getting my hands dirty doing fun art projects... So I was thrilled to be invited to do an art piece for the Evisu Cube project. Each artist is given a small 3-D space and some Evisu fabric to make an art project with. The show will be open November 9th with an auction of the artwork in order to benefit a Chinese charity. Similar events were done in Hong Kong and London and hope the Shanghai event goes off just as well.
I will post some… Continue
