Wearable Car Parts!

 

The Lexus Fashion Workshop challenged designers to create a collection by reusing car parts. The result, a chic collection fit to make any women standout in confidence. Lexus recruited designers: Moss Lipow, Eddie Borgo, John Patrick, and Alejandro Ingelmo whose jewelry, eyewear, clothing, and shoes will be featured in a six-page advert in Vogue along with a display at Art Basel Miami Beach.  The pieces will be auctioned off at the show with proceeds going to the Council of Fashion Designers of America/Vogue Fashion Fund (CDFA).
