To live and love as creatively and extravagant as possible, I want to use fashion and art as a platform to display a lifestyle of creativity and expression as a voice for Justice. A hope is to connect with others and empower love and unity on behalf of justice. I have witnessed the powerful hope and freedom that our voices continue to bring even through simplest initiatives of love. When I've encountered the word "justice" in the past, it has felt very intense and overwhelming, but in my years of encountering justice, I've learned that it's very tangible - small acts of love come down to kindness and grace.
As a traveler and missionary, I've witnessed many social injustices such as measures of extreme poverty, sex trafficking and child trafficking, disease, hunger, and oppression. The past summer/fall of 2014, I was able to travel with Justice Speaks (an LA-based non-profit anti-human trafficking organization) to Thailand and experience firsthand the realities of sex trafficking. I've also had the opportunity to witness hope and beauty through restoration as well as take on trafficking prevention initiatives. In working with victims of sex trafficking as well as children that are at high-risk of being sold into sex slavery, I was able to understand that these injustices are very real and painful to see, but the evidence of hope and restoration has empowered us to do something about it! A desire is to see life flourish and to be a light, even in the darkness - and what can at times, seem like the most hopeless circumstances or lifeless places. Follow us as we pursue our dreams, travel, make a brand statement, meet people around the world and have the privilege of partnering with causes and projects we believe in. We know that everyone has a dream, and every dream that is birthed from even the smallest seed, can touch someone in the world and make a significant impact. We believe even the most broken things can be made whole again. We've witnessed countless miracles and testimonies of healing, restoration, beauty, and hope. We want to use our resources, networks, support of friends, and creative voices to make beauty known in the ugliest circumstances and places. Our mission in life is to love - life and people, and enjoy the process of our journey. Our dream is to see others believe in the power of love in their own lives, realize it's beauty, and allow justice to manifest outwardly as we are true to ourselves inwardly.
