Lauren Bush designs an eco-friendly fashion line
The following is a blog posting about her line and does not necessarily reflect my own opinion.
But I give Lauren Bush “cool” points for her principled achievements. As an anthropology student at Princeton University in 2005, Lauren went to Chad as a student ambassador for the United Nations’ The World Food Programme.
In 2007, Lauren Bush designed a bag for FEED Projects, which she started with Ellen Gustafson, a former UN Communications Officer. This raised recognition and over 5 million dollars for the UN World Food Programme. A portion of each “FEED 1” bag sold brings hope of an education to an underprivileged child and supplies him/her with meals for an entire school year. Each “FEED 100” bag (available at Wholefoods) provides 100 meals to children in Rwanda. Many celebrities have been caught rooting for the FEED bags, like Desperate Housewives star Marcia Cross and Lauren Bush’s friend- PETA activist Elizabeth Berkley.
Lauren Bush is a serious Fashion Diva, as her modeling has been featured in Vogue and Vanity Fair magazines, and with Tommy Hilfiger, Abercrombie & Fitch, Isaac Mizrahi and Gai Mattiolo. She is signed with Elite Model Management- the agency that America’s Next Top Model winners sign with. Although Lauren’s degree is from Princeton, she also studied fashion design at Parsons The New School for Design in NYC and Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design in London.
