Billabong’s Design For Humanity Fashion, Music & Art Event, June 2009

This year’s Design for Humanity was all about sequins, pleather and rock and roll! For the third year in a row, Billabong rocked out a sold out crowd at the Avalon, Hollywood for its annual Design for Humanity Charity Event. The charity event gave 100% of ticket sales, in addition to sales from the silent auctions of art and one-of-a-kind designs, to this year’s charity: water, whose mission is to bring fresh drinking water to developing nations by building wells.
The main event: a fashion show with unique and inspiring Billabong swimwear.
This year’s inspiration appeared to be all about classic, head banging, sweat-dripping, rock and roll. A glam rock paradise of sequins, zippers, fringe, neon and pleather strutted down the runway in the form of hot pants and daring one-piece cut-outs. My favorite stand-out piece? A hot pink fringed vest over a skimpy Brazilian cut pleather bikini. Insane!
To top off the rocking swim collection, it was only fitting to follow the show with alt-rockers The Airborne Toxic event and indie pop stars Iglu and Hartly. With hot pants and getting your pants rocked-off, this year’s 3rd annual Design for Humanity was definitely the best yet!
Missed out? Usually I’d say too bad, so sad, but this time you can watch the video and still donate by buying the Billabong Tori Praver bikini. $5 of the sale of this paisley print bikini goes directly to Water, and $5 is enough to give 5 people fresh drinking water for an entire year! Sip on that! Get a the limited edition Tori Praver Bikini HERE.

Try a Rip, C’Mon, Everyone’s Doing It

In case getting a free test drive of some killer new boards, new FCS fins, and the new Rip Curl wetsuit isn’t enough, South Coast added in some Taylor Knox and Tom Curren to show you up in the water. Still not convinced? Free Rip Curl swag. Knew that’d get ya. The only thing you have to worry about is not peeing in the demo suit. But c’mon, you can’t always have your cake and eat it too.

L*Space: Burgers and Bikinis Charity Event

Hot buns and burgers too! What more could you ask for? 

Last Monday L*Space teamed up with the Crow Bar in Corona del Mar for a night of to-die-for burgers and even tastier bikinis. To add to the deathly combo, proceeds from the burger sales went to AmberWatch Foundation, an organization that is dedicated to the prevention of child abduction and molestation. The event left everyone with a belly-full of gourmet goodness, a glimpse at some super cute and unique L*Space bikinis, and a warm fuzzy feeling from doing it all for a good cause. What’s not to love about that?!

Check out some of the featured L*Space bikinis here!
