According to Vanity Fair, Former First Niece Lauren Bush’s new designer collection Lauren Pierce “isn’t just another clothing line with a famous name slapped on the label.” Lauren says, “I’ve always loved design and had an interest in the fashion world, but to me, it’s important that the clothes do good and stand for something. My goal is to create a product that is a little more meaningful.”
Each season, Lauren Pierce contributes 10% of profits to a cause that affects women in the country from which it has sourced that seasons materials.
For Spring 2009, Lauren’s designs will support Women for Women International’s programs in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Spring ‘09 Collection uses tie-dyed fabrics from Congolese participants in Women for Women International programs. The one-of-a-kind materials accent Lauren Pierce’s timeless cocktail dresses, double-sided capes, and perfect-for-spring skirts, and 10 percent of the proceeds from sales go back to supporting the artisans.
