Fashion diversity is starting to make its way into the fashion scene, slowly but surely.  We were honored to get to do this arm piece for Rebekah Marine for NYFW this year.  Check out this great article on STYLE.MIC Magazine to get the low-down on the different models that are breaking down barriers and removing stigma around the globe.

Rebekah walked the runway with little Gianna Schiavone where they symbolized the importance of empowering our youth to gain the confidence to face the world despite their differences.  Love getting to shift the conversation through design.
