Velvet's Edge + LPA

When Kelly showed up to our shoot wearing this amazing LPA jacket I knew I was going to be hooked with this company. Do yourself a favor and check them out... also, go see all the goodies the Velvet Edge gals are up to. I am over here working on a Sunday because I'm heading to New York this week for shoot this week! I think I am needing something like NY in my life right now... mix it up, shake it up... Let's do this November.

Haiti Design Co + FORBES

One of my favorite gals Chandler Busby who is the badass boss lady of Haiti Design Co was featured in an article in FORBES. I  think I am biased because luckily I have been able to spend a lot of time with her + her husband Josh in Haiti.. But she could not be a more inspiring / creative / and a kind human. It's been a joy to be apart of the brand in a small way... and I'm so pumped to see all the growth that is going to happen in the coming years. Chandler here's to you sweet girl.. The world is better because your here. I can not wait to get back to Haiti to drink Rum punch + do Yoga via rooftop with YA! You are a QUEEN.

Read the article HERE.  And check out Haiti design co HERE. I am SO proud of you.

HAITI DESIGN CO-OP BELIEVES THE MARRIAGE OF DESIGN AND PURPOSE CAN HAVE

A LONG LASTING RIPPLE AFFECT OF DEVELOPMENT AND COMMUNITY BUILDING.

"Haiti Design Co-op was founded in 2014 with the goal to bring about sustainable development through design, training, and job creation. Our mantra around the workshop is "MEN ANPIL, CHAY PA LOU". This is an old Haitian proverb meaning "MANY HANDS MAKE THE LOAD LIGHT". We believe that there is commonality between the designer, maker, and consumer, and that when working together we can help lighten each other's load and bring about lasting positive impact. "

We must demand ethical fashion. We must use our purchasing power to support fair treatment and dignity of the hands creating the clothes we put on our bodies. We must use our purchasing power to demand products that protect our environment. If we as a society do not care about respecting the people behind our products and this one world we live in, then who will?

Newly

There is a new badass brand in town my friends!! Everyone say hello to Newly!! They make all of their products from 100% recycled or repurposed materials because they saw a huge problem that not enough consumer goods are maybe with recycled content. I think my favorite piece is the cross blanket & I can not wait to get my hands on one!! Each blanket uses 12 plastic bottles and saves 2250 gallons of water! ( wow. )

Shooting for brands like Newly is honestly my favorite, I love what they do & I am so honored to be able to be apart in some small way. ( Also, austin lord shot with them as well.. check him out!! )

 Check them out-- buy some product & tell your pals. Newly is for everyone. Also, they launch new products every month!! 

Happy launch week to the Newly team! I wish you all the best. You're really doing it. Thanks for making the world a better place.
