buzz: lauren pierce by lauren bush

"Fashion is such an amazing vehicle...there’s something neat about a woman putting on an outfit that she loves and then looking at the tag and realizing it was hand-dyed by a woman in Africa"

- Lauren Bush

o o o

from FEED bags to a brand new foray into fashion, lauren bush is a young lady who knows how to mix business with giving. this spring, her Lauren Pierce label features eco-friendly pieces hand-dyed by congolese women, hemp silk, and bamboo. also, "each season Lauren Pierce contributes 10% of profits to a cause that affects women in the country from which it has sourced that season's artisanal materials". win-win situation, no?
