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.
A rotating flip into a reverse 360. Boom.
Not only is O’Neill sponsored rider Jordy Smith one of the highest paid surfers in the biz, but now the South African also holds arguably the highest core score to be had: it’s what GrindTv calls “the most high-performance maneuver ever executed on a wave.” Behold…
So there I was, miserable and suicidal about another dreary June Gloom forecast, when AOL directed me to the sunny skies of “Vanity Fair’s” website. Whoa! Like a Phoenix rising from smoldering ashes, my heart was set free to see a dazzling video and slide show of surfing’s hottest female stars. Coco Ho, Alana Blanchard, Quincy Davis, Sally Fitzgibbons, and many more are profiled as the “Tubular Girls” who will dominate the winners’ podiums for the next several years.
A quick heads up: After viewing, you’ll most likely want to hit the tanning salon and then go bikini shopping.
