Fashion is often criticized when it tries to do something charitable, especially when the purpose of the project has little or no significance to the cause it supports. The Eastpak Artist Studio has been around for 4 years and each year it gives a couple of designers a chance to transform a blank Eastpak padded pak'r into a work of art to be auctioned for charity.
The charity in receipt of the proceeds is DAA also known as designers against aids. It was formed in 2004 and its main objective to raise awareness about hiv/aids.
This years roaster includes a star studded line up of Tim Coppens, Christopher Shannon, Jean Paul Gaultier, Manolo Blahnik, Walter Van Beirendonck, Sybilla, Scooter LaForge, MSGM, Lala Berlin, KRJST, Henrik Vibskov, Gaspard Yukievich, Elio Fiorucci, Christopher Lee Sauve, Chris Janssens & Antoine Peters.
The auction opens on world aids day Dec 1st.
