The Lexus Fashion Workshop tasks designers with reusing car parts – The four fashion designers (recruited by Lexus) who worked on the collection were Moss Lipow, Eddie Borgo, John Patrick and Alejandro Ingelmo, whose eyewear, jewelry, clothing and shoes will be featured in a six-page advert in Vogue, along with a display at Art Basel Miami Beach. These pieces will be auctioned off at the show, with proceeds going to the Council of Fashion Designers of America/Vogue Fashion Fund (CFDA).
*Environmental Crown of Virtue (1st image) – A truly head-turning piece designed by Moss Lipow using a transmission starter and exhaust manifold gasket.

*Nomadic Sanctuary – A sleek trench coat, shorts and clutch designed by John Patrick, featuring floor mats made from plant-based plastic, sustainable sound-dampening material, wire harness, leather seat covers and cargo covers.
