The site of many a fashion show (and shoot) on a freezing cold night- hosted a well attended event- benefiting the Costa Verde International School…a Green School Alliance non-profit, pre-k through middle school on Mexico's west coast…that easily warmed the hearts of bidders.
|steep walk up lined with photographs donated by rather well known photographers -Anne Menke and a slew of fashion names like Helena Christensen-model, photographer, mom. Fabulous!|
Costa Verde International School-(and cultural center)-located in rural Sayulita teaches area children (and adults) the ABCs as well as the 'green approach to living…' that embraces the practical and economic benefits of a sustainable/eco lifestyle.
|The school is in a beautiful area of Mexico -an upscale travel destination for many but also where people live. IMO-a way to 'give back' -reminds us of Confucius' attributed concept: give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime|
We were super impressed with the turn-out from the arts and fashion world…practically all dressed in black of course --- actively signing those silent auction sheets to bid on donated works…and scooping up tees-to support the cause.
