Dear friends and supporters,
Get comfortable folks because we have some exciting updates to share with you!
First, back in May, Classy Little Fashions Foundation turned two years old! It’s amazing how fashion disparities for professionals with disabilities evolved into a problem solving organization. You can learn more about our history by following this link.
Second, thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, we were able to purchase a heavy-duty Bernina sewing machine that allows us to now easily construct leather accessories for clients — such as holsters, shoes, belts, and bags. (We will keep you updated on the timelines.)
Last but not least, our third exciting bit of news is…we now share production lines with Lilly Fiona Designs! An Apparel Design and Manufacturing student at Texas Tech University, Alicia McDonald, is the founder and sole designer behind this rising star label.
If her name sounds familiar to you, it’s because Alicia has been CLFF’s dedicated intern for the past year. While her career is moving forward, she is still a member of the Classy Little Fashions Foundation family. By sharing production lines with her label, CLFF will benefit from shared equipment and we’ll continue to have access to the creative design genius herself.
Alicia is just returning from a whirlwind, three-week fashion tour of Europe and we are excited to see the new line she has been working on as she travels.
We will have more exciting announcements in the very near future, so remember to come back to our blog often!
Keepin’ it classy!
Jane Hash, Co-Founding Director
