I am a big fan of PS Arts, a Los Angeles organization that provides year round art education for under served public schools in the area. I participated in their annual Express Yourself events in 2013 and 2014, and am very much looking forward to doing so again this year.
Another great fundraiser their annual “Bag Lunch”. I attended last week with my talented friend, Maryl Georgi of Anymatic. The event was held at the lovely home of Dave and Alicia Leyrer.
PS Arts provided a lovely High Tea and shopping experience when they teamed up with renowned handbag designer Clare Vivier who donated a limited collection of her fabulous clutches, designed by contemporary artists, and hand painted by DTLA Custom.
DTLA Custom is an LA based fashion art house that applies custom, hand painted designs to any leather or PVC (coated canvas) accessory. Entrepreneur Tara Martin launched the company in March after successfully founding My Other Bag and Bag Junkies.
100% of the proceeds of each limited edition clutch that was sold at the event goes to support PS Arts and the wonderful work they do.
It was a lovely day, surrounded by women who choose to make a difference. I was very proud to be in their beautiful company.
