Like many fans of local independent fashion, we’re looking forward to Friday’s Discarded to Divine evening preview at the de Young Museum with some serious gusto. It’ll give us a chance to get up close and personal with the annual project’s outpouring of apparel made from cast-off clothing and textiles. Sure to be one of the most popular pieces is the red dress shown above, a design from Project Runway contestant Sweet P.
Other standouts include the yellow and grey halter-topped dress by Art Institute of California student and designer Coral Castillo, who won the top spot in the women’s day wear category this year, and, below, a slinky black and white gown by Barbara Beccio.
