Fashioned for a Cause

Along with my sister Elizabeth from Elie's papelwe donated 30 similar bags to the ones we prepared for the Academy Awards Gifting suites last month. They included her beautifully made stationary and my knitted accessories. We attended by invitation of La Chica Chic, a collection of Brazilian shoes, handbags, jewelry and accessories made with organic leathers, suede, and recycled materials designed by Cristiane Valdez.

Together with Shoes for the Soul, a non-profit organization, the mission is to place new shoes on the feet of children whose family are at or below poverty line. There are approximately 1.9 million homeless children in the United States. We believe that together we can accomplish so much more.
