Elegantees is a modest clothing line created by my friend Katie Martinez in NYC. Her mission is twofold - create affordable clothing, and raise money for women rescued from sex trafficking in Nepal. In honor of Human Trafficking Awareness day, Elegantees is offering a flash sale of the aptly named "Hope" dress for just $25 all weekend long. Sales provide sewing jobs, help the women restore their dignity and give them hope for their future. Regular retail price is over $50, so not only are you getting a great deal, but you are also supporting a great cause!
GO HERE to shop for "Hope."
Job opening: in other Elegantees news, Katie and I are working on an exciting opportunity (think TV network that sells clothes) and need a third member for our team. We are looking for someone who is capable of translating ideas into hand or computerized sketches that show construction, are easy to work with (communication will be primarily with a production manager in NYC), and the ability to make patterns and to sew is a plus, but not required. Someone living in NYC or able to travel to NYC also a plus, but not required. To apply please email your resume and any design examples to Katie at email@example.com.
