We would like to congratulate Jackie on achieving her awesome charitable goal of wearing Ken Done apparel for 365 days!
Jackie has just accomplished her pledge to wear Ken Done (famous Australian Artist) inspired 1980s fashion every day for a year to raise money to The Social Studio, that supports young refugees in Australia. Check out Jackie’s webpage to see 365 outfits inspired by Ken Done, or how to help her out!
The Social Studio is a dynamic space where clothing is created from the style and skills of the young refugee community. Recycled and excess manufacturing materials are gathered from local industry and re-configured into original clothing. The Social Studio is based in Melbourne, Australia.The Social Studio empowers young people to achieve their dreams through social enterprise. The main barriers faced by newly arrived members of the community are unemployment, isolation and difficulties accessing education and training.
Civilian protector of the Granville store during the Vancouver Riot, Andrew saw a chair get thrown through the main window (now fixed) with a risk of further damage. He positioned himself in front of the broken Fluevog window deterring others from causing further breakage or looting. At one point, he had to stop a young man from trying to light a bag on fire to throw into the store. Thank goodness no one was prepared to mess with Andrew, and thank goodness Andrew wasn’t hurt—we are so thankful for his presence and courage, and hope he and his girlfriend enjoy their new, non-looted, Fluevogs.
