This Week at Refinery29, political activism gets fashion-wise thanks to Downtown for Democracy. Specially-designed shirts by fashion visionaries including Francisco Costa, Peter Som, Patricia Field, and Project Alabama stole the show at a recent event proving you can wear your political philosophy on your sleeve. Yoko Devereaux (no relation) shows us the perfect mix of downtown cool and uptown sophistication, with a little L.A. glamour thrown in the mix. L.A.-based jewelry designer Pade Vavra is inspired by organic materials and makes shark's tooth and coral-covered jewelry that looks like it came straight from the earth. And last but not least, that Houndstooth you’re wearing has a history that extends further than last season. This playful check has been in style all the way from Braveheart-era Scotland to Coco Chanel.
