Social Atelier Launch Tonight

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.


This is the new wave of thinking in fashion. If we can be green in the way we think about carbon emissions, our cars, our homes, recycling and being more aware of how we act, then the next step is to think critically about how we dress.

Welcome Social Atelier, a new fashion line that is having their launch party tonight and will be sold in Fred Segal stores starting today. I met the founders Andrei Najjar and Yael Afriat at an LA Fashion Council event a few weeks ago and was inspired by their mission and innovative approach to fashion. Each season they are going to chose a different nonprofit to direct a portion of the proceeds to and for this season they have chosen the Solar Cooking Project.
