ExpoWest 2015: 'BEAUTY IN ALL BEINGS' FASHION SHOW

One of our favorite trade shows every year is Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, CA. There's always so much excitement and buzz in the air. I think it has to do with being surrounded by so many like-minded companies all working towards creating a positive, mindful, and lasting impact through our products and services. This year however, was even more special for us than years past. Whole Foods Market in partnership with thinkThin put on the most amazing fashion show and we were lucky enough to be a part of it! The fashion show was appropriately titled 'Beauty In All Beings' and benefitted the Whole Planet Foundation. The money raised will go toward micro-lending programs for businesses in 63 countries. With the support of many organic and eco-minded companies, the show was a success raising $100,000 and it was a night to remember for all in attendance!   [caption id="attachment_1526" align="alignnone" width="600"]IMG_1846 Hexagon Collection Lucy Dress in Coral walking down the runway.

Synergy x The Penny Rose

logo resizedSynergy has always been passionate about supporting our local community, so one year ago we teamed up with The Penny Rose, a Santa Cruz-based style blog, to create an exclusive capsule of co-designed items to be included in our Spring 2015 line. As longtime friends and mutual admirers of one another’s work it was the perfect match, blending eco-consciousness with innovative fashion.

In the early part of 2014, we met several times and together designed four items that you’ll see rolling out this season. Included in the group are two tops and two dresses. Each style has a timeless, distinct, versatile flavor. We hope you’ll enjoy our collaborative capsule as much as we did creating it.

Look for upcoming posts on our blog and on The Penny Rose blog featuring these four collaborative designs as well as a short film about the project in April on The Penny Rose and on our blog.

You were born with potential.
You were born with goodness and trust.
You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. You were born with wings.
You are not meant for crawling, so don't.
You have wings.
Learn to use them and fly.
-Rumi
