DESIGN+INSPIRATION: Lutz & Patmos for Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu for Spring 2010 gave us a preview of the Spring 2010 collections that included introductions to new designers, hype of all the many parties, and something in particular that inspired me.
The duo that is Lutz & Patmos collaborated with Desmond Tutu to create this beautifully-designed knit organic cotton deep neck yoked back piece. They submitted design options to the Arch Bishop and this one was chosen. The piece will be unveiled during fashion week. Proceeds from sales will go to the Desmond Tutu Peace Center and the Hillcrest Aids Centre Trust.

Two of my favorite things coming together to benefit those in need. Fashion and humanity are a perfect pair because purpose breathes life into fashion and fuels the passion for it even more.
In honor of Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu I bring you this weeks weekly words

"Do your little bit of good where you are; its those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world."
- Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu

I know its a few days late but it's worth the wait. There is no good deed too small. Put your thoughts into action and they will make a difference.
