Fashionable Philanthropy

Fashion and philanthropy have always been a fashionable pair. Countless designers, artists and members of “Haute Société” have for year combined their glitz, glamour and wealth for the benefit of many worthy causes. From Elizabeth Taylor, to Princess Diana and countless others in between, their charitable donations and passion for helping other have been fine examples to follow.

However, there is one fashionista that is changing the rules of the game. Enter Lauren Bush: Princeton alumna, model, designer, entrepreneur and eco-conscious celeb. While her family is active in politics, she is also an activist in her own right. In 2006, Lauren started the  FEED Projects, an eco-friendly line of burlap bags with proceeds going to feed hungry children in schools around the world (notably Africa and Asia). She also created an exclusive line of bags in response to the earthquake in Haiti (read about it here). It is this combination of fashion and philanthropy that has always been Lauren’s passion.

Her most recent foray into fashion and philanthropy is the Lauren Pierce Atelier, a collection of beautifully-crafted women’s wear, made from environmentally-friendly fabrics, handcrafted from women artisans around the world. Her clothes combine a chic modern aesthetic: feminine, structured and edgy with an eclectic and warm blend of colors and bohemian patterns. Her designs are simple, elegant and extremely wearable, and most importantly combine the strength and creativity of women from around the world.
