2008 : The Call to Action

The year 2008 represented many things to many people. For the world’s greatest athletes, it represented a chance to win Olympic gold. For others, it represented a successfull opportunity to usher in a historic presidency. For many more, it signified new opportunities, realized dreams and fulfilled potential. For too many, however, the year 2008 marked a year of struggle: lost jobs, reduced incomes, foreclosed homes and rising debt. For many more in the developing world who live on less than two dollars a day, 2008 harbored even greater challenges. Inspired by the recurring calls for change and action, the third Lookbook looked to America's visual iconography, leading with images featuring a diverse array of young Americans striking the classis "Uncle Sam" pose. The book also featured popular reality TV stars Andy Baldwin (from "The Bachelor") and Jack Mackenroth (from "Project Runway"). Printed as limited edition postcards, the Lookbook reinforced ideas of lasting beauty, utility and reuse, while staying true to its mission as a catalogue of the year's hotest ethical looks.
