I am thrilled about the launch of our Peachy line in collaboration with Fashion & Compassion. I had been looking for a way to give back when Beth Bell, Executive Director, reached out. Fashion & Compassion helps vulnerable women subjected to abuse, human trafficking, addiction, incarceration, and poverty overcome their situations. Through a supportive, healing community, they are empowered and realize they are capable and worthy. Through mentoring they set and achieve goals around employment, education, housing, continued sobriety, health and wellness—the list goes on. Fashion & Compassion also partners globally with artisans, empowering women and families through economic mobility. All purchases and proceeds go directly to helping these women. I can’t think of a better way for women to help other women. I hope you enjoy the line and that everything sells out quickly!
Together, Peachy and Fashion & Compassion have created a collection of beautiful wrap skirts inspired by Fashion & Compassion’s artisans in Uganda. Made with vibrant Dutch wax cotton fabric in patterns drawn from African Kitenge fabrics, these skirts fit sizes 0–16 and make a statement out of any outfit. They pair beautifully with sneakers, boots, or heels—and can go from day to evening in a flash. Each skirt comes with its own matching face mask, and the artisans of Fashion & Compassion have created amazing jewelry and handbags to coordinate with each look.
