Monday night I gathered with friends to view and try on the new Fall line from Noonday Collection. Last February was my first Noonday Trunk Show and I have fallen in love with this company and their beautiful, hand-made accessories.
It was a perfect night to catch up, play dress up and indulge in some sweets all while learning more about how our purchase has power. Companies with a conscience, like Noonday, are popping up all over making it easier for consumers to purchase ethically.
Noonday uses fashion and design to create economic opportunity for the vulnerable. They are currently working with 28 different artisan groups in 10 different countries. They employ 2,000 artisans and consequently are impacting 8,800 family members. They provide the dignity of work and a fair wage, no-interest loans, scholarships, emergency assistance and long term trade for their artisans. They do this by creating a marketplace for artisans allowing them a sustainable income and the ability to not only survive but to thrive!
Some party pics to showcase our evening:
Thank you to all who were able to make it Monday! It was a huge win to spend the evening with each of you. Special thanks to my Ambassador, Jennifer Jensen, who perfectly articulated the mission of Noonday and reminded us that once we begin purchasing ethically we will have a hard time going back.
This trunk show will close Sunday. If you weren't able to make it or live far away, no trouble, you can still check out Noonday online at www.jenniferjensen.noondaycollection.com.
Oh, and in case you're curious... I'm debating between all these pieces.
How will I choose? Open to input.
