It's always lovely to see Christy Turlington. We met a few years ago at a screening of her Documentary, Every Mother Counts. Christy has evolved in many ways from her early modeling days. She's now a mom/businesswoman and policy advocate--and does it all with grace and style. For the past few years Every Mother Counts, has become a major force in giving voice to the needs of the globes poorest mothers. Her goal is to increase education and support for maternal mortality reduction. This month we met up again at the store launch of Roberta Freyman's new downtown NYC location at 176 Duane Street.
For the opening party, Roberta created a capsule for Every Mother Counts that uses the non-profits signature colors (cool blue and coral) in a '??s travel collection. When I spoke with Roberta at the event she stressed how important it is to get women working. In an effort to raise awareness and funds, Roberta Roller Rabbit designed the Metta print and created an assortment of her favorite pieces that will give 10% of the sales to improving the lives of mothers worldwide.

Every two minutes, a woman around the world dies from complications due to pregnancy or childbirth, creating a rippling effect that devastates children, families, and communities. But 90% of those deaths are preventable--with your help. All it takes is a quick click and you'll be stylish and helping the moms most in need. I bought the Classic Kurta in Orange. I also love the Classic Kids Kurta created in limited edition Metta print features a loose, soft cut, with a split v-neck and ¾ sleeves, slightly more contemporary cut with contrast border at sleeve and hem. And the Beach Bag works for everyone It's oversized and modern all at the same time. Perfect for your next beach vacation!
