At Michael Stars, we are committed to empowering women to create a positive change in the world. This Spring, we’ve partnered with Paula Coles, Haiti to introduce the Artisan Collection.
It’s a simple solution Co-Founder & President, Suzanne Lerner, discovered long before she founded Michael Stars. With social responsibility built into our brand’s DNA, it only seemed fitting to launch an exciting and meaningful partnership with our friend, Paula Coles.
Inspired by female artisans and Suzanne’s commitment to impact Haiti, the Artisan Collection was created. The collection generates sustainable well-paid employment for Haitian women, men and their families.
$100 from each jacket purchased also goes towards a student’s annual tuition and supplies through PRODEV schools, an NGO that strives to offer the best, most innovative education in Haiti.
The limited-edition collection offers an assortment of linen anorak jackets featuring unique, hand-beaded designs. Not only are the designs beautiful, but they also speak to the heritage and strength of the Haitian people and their culture.
In the true spirit of Haiti, each design incorporates a Veve’, representative of Haitian gods and goddesses.
Priestess of knowledge, mysteries and the natural world
Haitian spirit of love, beauty, luxury and flowers
Warrior spirit of wind, lightening, fertility, fire and magic
Sky father, the creator of all life and a source of peace and tranquility
The Artisan Collection is the beginning of many powerful partnerships that will pave the way for future Michael Stars collaborations around the world. Together, we have the power to create a positive change.
