This Visionary Sees a Cool, New Eco-Boutique
While the “Davids” were sweating bullets on American Idol Wednesday night, the Razz was cool as a cucumber in West Hollywood, at the grand opening of the new one-stop eco-boutique, Visionary.
Magda Rod, designer for Wildchild Wear, has started an eco label of clothing called, Visionary, by Wildchild Wear. Magda feels everyone can be more environmentally and socially conscious without sacrificing quality or style. Well, I can tell you that this reporter, as well as a little girl named Lourdes (whose Momma you may have heard of…) would say, “Word to that, sista!”
We here at the Razz are always fans of a company that puts their money where their mouth is and that’s precisely what Visionary did last night. Not only did the money flow, but it flowed towards green. A portion of the proceeds from the evening’s sales went to Mikhail Gorbachev’s Global Green.
The debonair Global Green board member and photographer, Sebastian Copeland, was also on hand to sign autographed copies of his spectacular book, Antarctica: The Global Warning. Sebastian (who also happens to be Orlando Bloom’s cousin.) said he was there to support the green movement in anyway he can… and if it’s through fashion then so be it! And that’s exactly what I tell my husband…my penchant for fashion supports the planet!
Speaking of fashion, the enormously talented actress (and painter, who knew?) Brooke Adams walked out of Visionary with a shopping bag of green goodies. While she didn’t offer a peak into her bag, she did offer up her own vision for our new president. She said WHEN Barrack gets nominated, he’s going to inspire us all to make sacrifices for the greater good. When asked what sacrifices she makes, she told us that she bikes everywhere and wishes more people would do the same. It seems what’s good for the planet is also good for the booty!
Having spent a few hours shopping at the opening, it’s official that the Visionary boutique carries a little bit of this and a little bit of that for men, women, children and even the home. The common thread is that everything is stylishly green and eclectic. Take for example, luxury eco-fashion designer Linda Loudermilk’s Pod dress, which was on display. Too bad I couldn’t find a price tag… well, come to think of it, it’s probably a good thing as I doubt she would be willing to barter for my blogging services!
