PIPERLIME PARTNERS WITH PROJECT RUNWAY WINNER GRETCHEN JONES
TO BENEFIT AID TO ARTISANS
Gretchen Designs an Exclusive Jewelry Collection for Piperlime Launching July 2011
WHAT: Piperlime, the online shop known for the freshest styles in fashion, has partnered with Project Runway winner Gretchen Jones to support and raise awareness for Aid to Artisans, an organization devoted to providing economic opportunities to help artisans build profitable craft businesses.
Gretchen worked with the Ipuna Artisan Workshop in Bogota, Colombia to create a 14-piece jewelry collection that will be available exclusively on piperlime.com. The collection includes necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings. Prices range between $48-$120 and 100% of net profits will be donated back to Aid to Artisans to support artisan groups around the world.
Gretchen, the Project Runway season 8 winner, is an eco-fashion designer and was praised for the sustainable jewelry she created to accompany her collection during New York fashion week in September 2010.
Piperlime first joined forces with Project Runway as the official retail partner of season 8 and will be the official retail partner of season 9, premiering in July, 2011.
