on Friday,July 02,2010 19:07
This October, Audi will be hosting Fashion Houston, an event that will feature up-and-coming designers, such as David Peck.
Peck and Jaime Collier, a Houston-based photographer and owner of Casa de Camera, joined to create a new fashion line, CrOp, which will be featured as the premiere collection of the event. Other designers confirmed to attend include Christian Siriano, Marc Bouwer, Chloe Dao, Kiton, Lauren Bush and Cesar Galindo.
CrOp, which is short for Creative Opportunities, is created using durable, fair trade fabrics with the lowest environmental impact, including organic cottons and natural silk.
Collier's photographs of aid work in Uganda inspired Peck to create many of the patterns and designs for their collection, and a portion of the profits from each CrOp garment will go to provide clean water and healthcare in Uganda.
"In today's global world, I feel that it is not possible to create a product without first examining its global impact. CrOp allows me to be creative while also addressing greater issues that affect our world," said Peck.
Untitled 11:11 is Peck's previous collection, which was also focused on sustainable design. Celebrities such as Talyor Swift have been seen wearing Untitled 11:11 because of its beauty and commitment to the earth. Peck's designs have been described as having Parisian style with American practicality.
