Green Girl-Power in LA

Jules and I spent a few super productive days in LA recently working on Born on Earth our organic, sustainable, fashion-forward kids line.

We met with two pioneering eco-fashion leaders who are going to help us with our line - Kelly and James from Kelly B Couture - a gorgeous eco-fashion line. They are not only super talented but are also very cool people - we are excited to work with them!
Later we met with Kiira, our brilliant designer. Check out her portfolio, she rocks. We also met with a hot new designer - Nathanial from Deeper Shade of Soul - who is starting a new line, and saw his factory floor - so much positive creative energy!

Later that night we had drinks with my lovely cousin Nancy and her close friend Laurie, who is the owner and designer of Pine IV jeans. They were in LA for Market - a fashion trade show. It was extraordinary to be surrounded by so much sustainable, Eco-passionate female inspiration, wisdom and skill. WOW!

At the end of our trip, we went to one of Kiira's clients to see her work in action - Fashionology LA. This place rocks! It is aimed at girls (tweens) and they can actually design and create their own clothes. Jules and I each made our daughters their own styles. Too bad it doesn't seem to be sustainable, but it is very fashionable and a lot of fun.
