A little over a year ago my good friend Valerie Jones and I were expressing our frustration with the generic nature of makers markets. There are many makers markets that have popped up, so many they are hard to differentiate one from the other. Valerie designs gorgeous handbags. and of course my jewelry, it seemed natural to seek fashion-focused events to attend. And there were none, at least not in the midwest. So we founded our own and named it LUXE Gives Back.
The idea has exploded and now includes events in 3 cities, pop-up shopping a runway show, and some of the most fabulous independent fashion out there. We have gathered a group of designers that we are honored to stand next to and to adequately showcase their talent we have added the digital LUXE Magazine with an edition published alongside each event.
