Markets Create Community: A photo essay by John Patrick

We had a recent studio visit with Los Angeles-based artist, Steve Hurd.

We also are loving the Mar Vista farmer's market on Sundays. Our favorite picks from the market are date bars from the Date Girl, tamales from MASA and fresh almond butter from Fat Uncle Farms. The market also features seedlings from Home Grown Gardens LA and the volunteer-run community bike repair shop, Bikerowave, who will fix your bike for free.

Tomorrow marks the opening of the Maison de Mode Ethical Pop-Up Shop at the Hole Gallery, which is located at 312 Bowery Street in New York. The pop-up shop will be open to the public Friday through Sunday from 12-7pm. The Maison de Mode Pop-Up Ethical Shop will feature a capsule collection from Organic by John Patrick, amongst the acclaimed Stella McCartneyOsklen and several others. In the pop-up shop, there will be featured items from Organic's Pre-Fall 2013 collection that are not yet available in our webstore. The event, in conjunction with the Frieze Art Fair, is founded by Designer Hassan Pierrecurated by Town & Country's Special Project Editor Amanda Hearst and will also be co-hosted by Hannah Bronfman

Amanda Hearst reflected on the debut of Maison de Mode this past December at Art Basel Miami Beach, which nearly sold out, telling the New York Times' T Magazine, "The funny thing is that I think a lot of people walked away not realizing the items were ethically produced. I basically made it my mission to prove that ethical fashion isn't frumpy and bland."

Peru protects its biodiversity with ban on genetically modified foods

John Patrick in Peru.

Peru is the first country in the Americas to ban genetically modified foods, with a law that protects Peru's biodiversity and the practices that have kept it in tact for so long, in the form of a 10-year ban on genetically modified food. The president of Peru, Ollanta Humala, really helped this legislation move forward and pass.

“In the end, it’s not a law that’s ‘against’ anything,” said Antonietta Gutierrez, a biologist at Peru’s National Agrarian University. “This is a law in favor of biosecurity. The idea is that there should be a responsible way of using technology, so that it helps us develop resources – and at the same time, doesn’t destroy what we already have."

Peru's new law puts its food policy closer to that of Europe, than to that of the US or many of its South American neighbors, further proving we in America have a long way to go fighting against GMO's.

Fashion for Haiti: One Million Hearts

As part of Fashion for Haiti: One Million Hearts, presented by the CFDA and the Urban Zen Foundation, John Patrick has created a one-of-a-kind hand-crafted contribution in the form of a heart covered in real kernels of dried corn.

"The Corn Heart is meant to explore and honor the Haitian farmers who are at the backbone of the true sustainability movement in Haiti. I am visiting Haiti as the guest of a farm family later in the year to learn more about the heritage seed movement in Haiti." -John Patrick

You can view the heart and place a bid up until May 2, 2013. All benefits will go to the Urban Zen Foundation.

This week in review

Organic by John Patrick was sprinkled throughout the web in celebration of Earth Day this week, with many media outlets featuring Organic in their timely features about sustainable fashion. 

Our favorites included the Short Sleeve Shirttail as featured on MSN.com's Lifestyle section, the Combo Pullover as featured on LifestyleMirror.com, and the Mariniere Pullover, as seen on WhoWhatWear.com

Additionally, the International Design Times quoted a recent article from the Huffington Post, in which professor and founder of the Fashion Law Institute, Susan Scafidi, spoke highly of Organic

Lastly, thank you to Modern Farmer for including the Oversize 1 Pocket Shirt in their "Things We Love" section.
