Jeans owned and donated by Iris Berben for the ‘Jeans for Refugees’ collection - covered by unique, hand-painted artwork by Johny Dar.

Size n/a

Johny Dar: "She's like a white wind... somehow within the process of painting her jeans the message emerged that it's your attitude in life that determines your age, it's not necessarily your age that determines your attitude. And that is what I see in her jeans - the white wind of inspiration blowing through, just as she shines her timeless smile everywhere she goes. Her jeans feel as through they are walking themselves - they are full of energy and movement. Iris was the first person to be photographed in her painted jean - she has been a great support on a personal level, and we are honoured to have the white wind of inspiration behind us!"

A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own an exclusive piece of wearable art, that will no doubt be the envy of anyone who sets their eyes on it. Keep it for yourself or proudly display it for others to covet. Each pair of jeans has been embellished using a special 3D paint, making these sought after art pieces wonderfully wearable. Johny Dar’s intricate, hand-painted artworks seek to reflect the individual personality of each donor, by paying tribute to their unique characters through artistic expression.

'Jeans for Refugees' is a Johny Dar project and artistic fundraising initiative dedicated to helping refugees from around the world, with all proceeds going to the International Rescue Committee. Photo credit
