A PURSE WITH A PURPOSE

Planet Botkier January 28, 2010

One of my favorite projects this year has been teaming up with the super stylish accessory lover and good friend Michelle Trachtenberg to design the Michelle Satchel, benefiting the Oxfam charity. An organization close to our hearts, Oxfam works to fight poverty and injustice around the world. Collaborating with Michelle on the design process was such a treat. The true highlight of the collaboration is giving back to a charity we both feel passionate about. The bag is available exclusively via Shopbop and fifty percent of proceeds go directly to Oxfam. We recently celebrated the design project with an intimate dinner at Stanton Social with Shopbop, Oxfam, and close friends-here are a couple photos from the memorable evening.

xoxo,

    When I first read this I thought it said porpoise not purpose and I laughed hysterically.

    But now that I’ve read it I think that is amazing you teamed up with Oxfam, one of my favorite organizations. I’d like some more info to blog about this. Do you have a press release you can email me? Thanks! NJ

    I think it is great how you use your success to give back. It also brings an awareness for an organization to someone like me, who has never heard of Oxfam. I had to google Oxfam to find out more about what they do.

    I think it’s really great that you give back! I know there are a lot of companies that do nothing for their communities/people … I only hope more companies follow your lead!
