Maria Cornejo And Mark Borthwick Rally For The Cause-------
The earthquake and tsunami in Japan have galvanized the fashion and design community. The latest to heed the call to action are husband-and-wife designer and photographer Maria Cornejo and Mark Borthwick, who are doing their part with a capsule range of collaborative tees and tanks. Proceeds from the Zero + Maria Cornejo tops screened with Borthwick’s atmospheric photos, which go on sale this week at their Evening for Relief to Japan, will go to benefit Doctors Without Borders and its work in Japan. Prefer your art of the decorative, rather than wearable, variety? Borthwick will also be selling his Polaroids for the cause. Both Borthwick and Cornejo will be on hand at Bleecker Street’s Zero boutique this Tuesday evening from 6 to 8 p.m. to sign the goods. If you weren’t among the lucky winners at Friday night’s Opening Ceremony Japan benefit raffle, here’s your chance to help the cause and take the prize—guaranteed.
