Recently, we got a Marie Claire magazine in the mail. It must have been a Holiday gift from Santa Clause, because we have no subscription to Marie Claire, haha! Yet, it was a nicce surprise and we were enlightened with a great article!
As we flipped through the pages, we came across a full-page photograph of a beautiful woman that caught our attention; Jennifer Buffett. She is married to Peter Buffett, who is the son of one of the wealthiest men in the world; Warren Buffett. Warren Buffett gave Peter and Jennifer Buffett a gift of $1 billion dollars and his only request was that they do something meaningful with the money and to give it away.
Jennifer and her husband made a decision to travel the world and figure out what exactly they’d do with with the money. They saw one issue that they were very moved by and they came upon the decision to focus on helping girls and women around the world. They created the NoVo Foundation.
What an inspiring woman! I absolutely love something that she says in her interview with Marie Claire:
“I feel more alive than I ever have in my whole life,” she says. “We have the ability to do so much. I can’t wait to get out of bed and support that.”

It’s amazing that there are wealthy people in this world who truly put their love and passion into making this a better world for everyone!
Here’s a photo of Jennifer Buffet with girls in Liberia!

ORGANIC – FAIR TRADE – SUSTAINABILITY – LOVE – PEACE – TAKING CARE OF OUR WORLD – AND LOOKING BEAUTIFUL!
Although we’ve created clothes from leftover fabrics so far, we are designers that want to merge with the new sustainable fashion movement and the way we see it is that there is no other way.
What do we consider the new fashion movement?
A movement, which uses the highest quality fabrics, produced with organic methods and dyed with natural materials. The talented workers making the fabric must have fair hours and wages. Them and their families must be supported so that they can grow stronger, live happier lives, and therefore produce better and more creative work. All of this will help both designers and producers of fabric and clothing to envision a better future for themselves and the world as a whole.
There are so many talented people all over the world. We believe that now is the time for real global collaboration! We must connect and support each other for a beautiful future and we must use the resources that this rich earth holds for us. Almost every country and culture on this planet has something unique to share with this world.
We can change the world by making a statement with the clothes we wear and as designers, we can make this change with the clothes we design. The best part is that you can look great and have fun while changing the world with what you wear.
An inspiring company is making change as I type this. It’s called People Tree and it supports everything I mentioned above. One of their biggest supporters is Emma Watson. Check out the video below of Emma Watson visiting Bangladesh where People Tree has one of its’ many producers of clothing. The workers have fair hours and wages, their children are supported with schools, and living space.
It’s an exciting direction for fashion and frankly, we believe that it’s the only choice we must make right now! Let’s support the beautiful and talented people of countries, such as, Indonesia, Thailand, Peru, India, Africa, Mexico, and many more!
PEACE & LOVE,
