New York, NY, February 13, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The Design duo of David Peck and Laurel Anderson will showcase the sophomore collection of their line Untitled 11:11 at The Pink Elephant on February 18th, 2009 at 8pm. The collection is in the words of the designers based on the idea of “a 1950’s housewife who get lost in the woods on her way to a party”.
Untitled 11:11 is also paring with Too Precious To Wear and will feature jewelry from their capsule collection of coral inspired jewelry. Too Precious To Wear is a SeaWeb project that aims to create a demand for coral conservation. Twenty-five percent of all marine life depends on coral reefs for food, safe havens from predators, and places to find mates. Reefs provide a source of food for more than one billion people around the world. The precious corals used in jewelry have suffered greatly from overfishing to meet demand for this fashion item. Corals grow so slowly that it can take decades for them to recover, if at all.
The line had previously announced collaboration with Artist Jill Lear and stylist/producer Aidyn Crowe.
Untitled 11:11 is the combined effort of David Peck and Laurel Anderson. The line mixes European high fashion influences and American sensibilities with a healthy dose of humor. The debut collection was shown this past September in New York.
David and Laurel are committed to adhering to ethical and environmentally responsible business practices. They are passionate about manufacturing close to the source and using Fair-Trade, eco-friendly, and American products whenever possible. David and Laurel’s zeal for “green practices” in their work stems from a desire to integrate these values into their own lives and offer the benefits to their customers through their designs.
David and Laurel met in Paris while attending Parsons-Paris School of Art and Design, where they both majored in fashion design and gained experience at fashion houses such as Junichi Hakamaki and Paco Rabanne, under Patrick Robinson, and Kai Kühne.
