Anndra Neen

 

We unveiled the collection during the 2011 Project Art event in New York City. The common thread? Each dress and accessory was crafted from one of the ten unique bolts of traditional, hand-woven Mexican fabric, generously donated by The Museo Regional de Oaxaca. One hundred percent of the proceeds are destined to support Project Paz with a program to help keep youth away from local gangs.

Formed by professionals originally from the Ciudad Juarez/El Paso area and living in NYC, Project Paz seeks to promote peace and contribute to the Ciudad Juarez community. L-atitude?s ethos of local business representation aligns with Project Paz?s mission; the partnership is a prime opportunity to build awareness together about the current challenges faced in Ciudad Juarez, a border community with important historical and economic ties to the United States.

 

Rag & Bone

 

To provide ongoing support, in early 2012 L-atitude will add Mexico City to its elite list of online shopping destinations and offer ten percent of online sales from this collection to Project Paz.
