DIN ORANGE MAKES FASHION SCENE IN LA
Sunday August 19
An organizer from LA decided to make a solo
statement and caused quite a fashion stir at the annual Los Angeles Sunset
Junction Street Fair Sunday afternoon. Clad in an outfit constructed entirely out of DIN Orange Drive
Out the Bush Regime bandanas, she made the
scene at the Silverlake community event, known for its good time flavored
family fun, and a tradition of colorful and unusually costumed revelers. Silverlake is a neighborhood of artists, performers,
musicians and home to a significant gay and lesbian community. This is a popular and very well attended
event each year in Los Angeles.
She approached the ticket gate and the workers were so taken by her outfit and the DIN bandanas that they agreed to flyer
every entrant that afternoon while sporting their new bandanas. She managed to inspire all gatekeepers at
the event to do this and got out stacks and stacks of DIN flyers this way.
Inside, she had lots of freedom to flyer and talk to folks about the Wear Orange campaign, as well as she attracted
admirers and photographers. A crew from the show “Tous Les Habits du Monde”, a
television show on the Arte and Culture Channel in France, asked if they could
film her for their show. She agreed. She was asked to spin her
fabulous skirt and fan out the bandanas so that the message could be easily
read: “DRIVE OUT THE BUSH REGIME! WWW.WORLDCANTWAIT.ORG ”.
They interviewed her about the WCW and the Wear Orange national campaign. They plan to feature her on a show dedicated
to political fashion.
We decided to do this on the spur of the moment because we didn’t have a crew to go out to this event, and we knew we
needed to get the word out somehow, so we decided to make a “fashion
scene”. And a scene it was!
The World Can’t Wait! Drive Out the Bush
Regime! Declare it Now! Wear Orange!
