A NEW KIND OF ‘WIN’ FOR SEAN AVERY
Many know New York Rangers left wing, Sean Avery, for his skills on the ice. Others know him for his keen fashion sense. The hockey star spent a summer off-season as an intern for Vogue magazine and recently worked with men’s fashion label, Commonwealth Utilities, to present a line during NYC Fashion Week. And now he’s taken up a new hobby: designing houses. Well, kind of.
Avery is among the fashion designers, sports stars, and other VIPs, who have decorated paper mache houses for Women in Need (WIN), a charity that provides “housing, help and hope to homeless families.” In keeping with the theme of “Home for the Holidays,” Sean has collaborated with Parsons The School for Design to create a one-of-a-kind decorative house to be auctioned off at charitybuzz.com. You can bid on Avery’s house thru November 30th and the proceeds raised will help Women In Need provide housing for homeless women and their families.
Sean’s creation has really managed to merge his two greatest interests. The house is decorated with
Rangers jerseys to represent his time in the rink and the Vogue magazine logo, perhaps his future career? Yes, after his days on the ice, Avery has said he hopes to become a fashion editor.
What do you think of Sean’s design?
