Fashion as a Force for Good

We love our socially conscious partners and what they are doing to create and affect meaningful change. One of these amazing partners is Union & Fifth. In fact, it's how RBRW Founder and CEO Jacquelyn Aluotto and I met, when I was working with U5 at Fashion x Houston last year. Union & Fifth's Founding Executive Director Christena Reinhard, one of our Socially Conscious Fashionistas, conceived of a campaign to help victims of Hurricane Harvey while we were in the midst of the storm.

The task of connecting with great philanthropists and organizations seemed daunting when we started Union & Fifth. Thanks to the generosity of JP Morgan Philanthropy Center, we started connecting with incredible people in Houston. Through the warmth and genuine enthusiasm for the Union & Fifth mission, we met Houston philanthropists Debbie Pakzaban and Anika Jackson who quickly connected me with their networks filled with strong women with hearts the size of Texas.

We were overwhelmed with the response – Houston women shoppe
