Two months ago Ford’s Tao Okamoto wrote a heartfelt letter to the world in the wake of the devastation to Japan precipitated by the earthquake and subsequent tsunami of 11 March. At the time of writing the letter Tao was still searching for ideas on how to aid the recovery effort and this week finally has announced it. In collaboration with SAVE JAPAN! and a handful of Japanese professionals Tao will host a benefit bazaar on Sunday, 29 May from 1200-1800 EDT at Saturdays Surf NYC at 31 Crosby Street in Soho. This is no ordinary bazaar à la church basement, however as previously owned fashion goods by industry insiders (including models) will be for sale. It won’t be unlike a sample sale, but with the key difference being the clothing and accessories for sale will come from model closets instead of showroom shelves. Now that is aura that simply cannot be synthesized and in the service of Japan surely will prove priceless.
