If you want to do some good and get a new dress then you can do them both in the same spot this Saturday! Lauren Bush, the grand-daughter and niece of our Presidents, has found yet another way to give back and combine her passion for business and fashion design with Lauren Pierce Atelier.
You might already be a fan of her Feed Bags which have already given away over $5 million dollars to the UN World Food Program. Their new bags and bears support the hungry children in Haiti. The bags are fantastic and the line has expanded from the classic tote to backpacks, bracelets and small pouches all made from eco-friendly burlap.
Once you have your sac, you should stop by to meet the designer and order a Lauren Pierce Atelier dress at Barney's Northpark this Saturday, March 20th from 2 to 5 on the Main Floor. The dresses are made from environmentally friendly and handcrafted fabrics purchased by female survivors of the war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Africa. There are four simple steps to designing your own dress:
1. Select your fabric.
2. Choose from 1 of 5 easy dress designs
3. Feel good about buying the fabrics as it supports the livelihood and traditional craft of the women of the Congo.
4. Pick up our own design and wear it with pride!
