We were so taken with these images, that we had to gobble them up from The Dish on Fashion Facebook page and serve them up over here. In the third installment of the ongoing event series from the W Hotel, longtime local designer Allysun Maria Dutra on Thursday shows off the daring creations she constructs under the label Kittinhawk – all of which are completely handmade from recycled materials, discarded textiles and found objects.
If you’re able to score a table (or glom on to someone who’s already snagged a rezzie), you can dine amid Dutra’s designs on Thursday at the hotel’s XYZ Bar and Restaurant. A table-side fashion show is on the menu, and Kittinhawk apparel and accessories will be available for purchase.
