The beautiful original creations of the Awajun & Ashaninka artisans and ORG by vio designs were featured at Vivienne Westwood Gold Label Fall 2014-15 Paris Show via NGO Cool Earth. Jewelry available at www.orgbyvio.com – Supporting Amazon artisans, protecting the rainforest.
This Vivienne Westwood collection is inspired both by the Ashaninka and the Awajun people. It also features some of the designs created by designer Violeta Villacorta for ORG by vio, which works in partnership with Awajun artisans who have made the jewelry worn in Vivienne Westwood fashion show featured here. ORG by vio also sells the Cushma tunics – worn by Vivienne Westwood and her husband Andreas at the end – via partner organization Ecotribal, who directly works with the Ashaninka. We are delighted Vivienne Westwood has featured the Awajun & Ashaninka culture and wears!!
Thank you, for featuring the Amazon artisans’ work, Vivienne Westwood!
Green Festival was great fun and successful, where we sold and showcased ORG by vio’s Amazon artisan eco jewelry worn with Violeta Villacorta eco luxury fashion at the festival’s Eco Fashion Show organized by vegan shoe designer Rebecca Mink. Then we were off to Modern Folk Living in Ojai, CA for a weekend bazaar featuring ORG by vio, where friend Wanda Weller has created an eco lifestyle destination for eco treasures. And finally we made a trip up North to Sonoma, CA in wine country, for an ORG by vio trunk show at Artefact Design Salvage, a stunning Interior Designer’s dream full of exquisite handcrafted furnishings and accessories.
