I want to share with you this super cool New York based association called the Young Designers Collective. It is this fabulous group of designers and artists who teamed up together to form this association that designs for non-profit organizations to promote good will! How fantastic is that?!? Not only do they support some amazing non-profits but the designers and artists who are a part of this are up and coming, so this association gives them a great platform to get their name out there and launch their career as well. Here is a great quote that really shows you their heart:
"We provide young designers a platform that would have otherwise been difficult to build and gain recognition with on their own. In an ever-shrinking world, working together to achieve success has never been more important. We allow for a free exchange of ideas and talents, thereby fostering the growth of artists and art in commercial design. We want to bring appreciation back to the artist behind the designer, to quality or handmade products, and to a more sustainable future."
Does that not make you absolutely fall in love with them? What a fantastic environment to work and create in. I wish I could (to bad I am not a designer) be apart of it because it sounds like the greatest atmosphere full of positive energy and support. I highly recommend checking out the Young Designers Collective site and reading more about them and seeing the beautiful work the designers have created thus far! fashion supporting non-profits, it's a match made in heaven!
