On Our Radar: Lauren Bush, AKA Lauren Pierce

Lauren Bush is no stranger to designing — she's the creator of the famous burlap Feed bags — but now she has added clothing to her repertoire. Lauren Pierce — Pierce being her middle name — is an environmentally friendly ready-to-wear line that uses handcrafted fabrics from artisans around the world. A portion of its proceeds aid causes that affect women around the world. "The mission is about the fabrics and the cause. I didn’t want it to be about my personality," Bush said.

The Spring line, seen above, incorporates fabrics that have been hand-dyed by women in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Neat. Ten percent of proceeds will go to Women for Women International, a non-profit that helps women in conflict and post-conflict environments.
