This amazing illustration arrived in my inbox just yesterday morning and I’m so excited to share it with you all. My talented and sweet friend, Jasmine Harrison, created this beautiful illustration for me from one of her favorite LACB outfits last summer and it’s definitely got me grinning from ear to ear.
Jasmine is a fashion designer who co-founded Marielle|Ejiama with Mercy Emelike, her friend and business partner. While it’s a young company, Marielle|Ejiama has already staked it’s claim as “the conscious brand for the adventurous, strong-willed and trail-blazing woman.” For all of you who have been reading LACB for a while, you know that I’m all about being an independent, ambitious and hard-working woman. Therefore, I couldn’t help but take notice of the potential and talent this sustainable brand has to offer. One of the many things (there really are a ton) that I love about their company though is that it’s not just about selling clothes – Marielle|Ejiama is really looking to be a part of a necessary change. They care about creating ethical fashion that is both accessible and affordable, while also creating a community of women who uplift each other. That is definitely something I can stand behind, and I hope that the fashion industry has more great companies like M|E soon.
That being said, they’re currently in the process of creating their summer collection and could really use our support. Find out how you can make a difference in creating sustainable fashion by going to joining their Kickstarter campaign today.
