Designer Samantha Pleet, who we’ve featured on Eco Chick several times (see her Greenshows runway collection here , and her Fall, 2009 collection her e) is one of the creators behind the Yesterday’s News Do-Gooder Design Challenge, wherein they are to create an original design using recycled newsprint.
According to the site:
The key here is that they are not being compensated – they’re doing it all for charity. Before being auctioned off for charity, their one-of-a-kind designs will be unveiled at a Green Catwalk Event in New York City this fall.
More to come as the design challenge heats up!
