We here at Fashion As a 2nd Language have every reason to rail at Hurricane Sandy–the storm flooded the Financial District building where we live and work and forced us to evacuate to higher ground (i.e., the Bronx). So we were excited to learn that ISAORA, a New York-based performance clothing company, asked 13 artists to transform individual examples of the label's Tech 3-L riding shells (like the version by graffiti artist, KATSU, above). The jackets are being auctioned on eBay to raise funds for Hurricane Sandy relief. Interested? If so, act quickly: bids close Monday, February 11, at 10 a.m. Don't snooze or you'll lose.
