Created by the Style & Image Network, this year’s Fashion Fights Poverty event featured ethical and eco-friendly designs from Kayce Armstrong, Annatarian, Eric Finn, Mae Ho, and Adele Weschler. The event raised $10K for Nest — a group dedicated to providing micro-financing loans to women in developing countries to begin or maintain art- or craft- based businesses. WORKING IT: FFP gets better each year and is a great addition to the local fashion scene, but it ran a long and the quality of the fashion, although eco-friendly, was hit and miss. Highlights included Armstrong’s collection, Will Thomas doing a yeoman’s job of keeping co-host Parker Posey in check, and rocking hair and make-up direction by James Cornwell.
