Designers Get Behind The Lens For Project Paz-------
Since its inception three years ago, Project Paz’s annual Project Art charity event has roped in a strong legion of designers to contribute to its cause. This year is no different—the likes of Tory Burch, Joseph Altuzarra, Narciso Rodriguez, Proenza Schouler, Michael Bastian, Rag & Bone, and Carolina Herrera have all shot one-of-a-kind photos to be auctioned at the gala in New York next month, with the proceeds going to help raise money for children who are victims of violence in Juarez, Mexico. The only guideline given to the designers for the image: Take a picture that reflects what you think of Mexico. Here, Style.com has an exclusive first look at some of the shots by Rodriguez (pictured, below), Prabal Gurung (pictured, left), and Derek Lam (pictured, below). “I love carnation flowers,” Lam tells Style.com, in reference to his piece. “They are ornate, over-the-top beautiful, optimistic flowers. They are full of life, like Mexico and her people.”
