dsharp  mg 6345 NAU Grant for Change Project

Just in from Nau, the Grant for Change ( G4C)  highlighting efforts of those who move in the spirit of the Nau Collective:  Athletes, Artists, and Activists challenging assumptions about what it means to move, be moved, and move others.

Design as a tool for positive change applies to many sectors. Examples include but are not limited to: architecture, energy, graphic Design + multimedia communication, performance, product + industrial design, transportation, urban planning and visual arts.

If you think this grant’s for you, you can nominate yourself. If it suits a colleague or a friend, you can nominate them, too (and nominate as many as you’d like). And if you simply can’t decide, then skip the nomination, and just vote. Have a look at the other nominees. See what designers are doing across the country, or in your own backyard.

LadyGaGaMacVivaGlam1 Lady GaGa at Mac Viva Glam Event

Lady GaGa appeared at Mac Viva Glam event in London yesterday. I like the outfit because it’s a GaGa classic, in that it includes three looks she has really pushed to the forefront of edgy fashion: the bodysuit, eye mask and (though it’s to a lesser degree), shoulder pads. She and Sharon Osbourne were both there as part of their efforts to help raise money for the MAC AIDS fund.

Images from Wire. More of Lady GaGa, including close-ups on her accessories and shoes, after the flip.

Barneys Japan X Agyness Deyn

 Barneys Japan X Agyness Deyn

Barneys Japan is teaming up with British model Agyness Deyn to create a collection of 11 items–dresses, knits, scarves, tee-shirts and leggings. They’ll retail from 18,900 to 27,300 yen (aka, $212-$307). The collection launches in Barneys’ new store in Kobe on Friday, and proceeds will go…and this is an interesting one…to planting trees in inner Mongolia. Interesting! As for the images WWD included with the article, I mean wow, it’s almost like someone was trying to make them look like leftovers from a Forever21 sale.
