Comptoir des Contonniers
In the Spring of 2014 I spearheaded the design, development, and creative direction of a collection for Comptoir des Contonniers, a French contemporary fashion brand owned by Fast Retailing. The collection mobilized 121 female indigenous artisans in Guatemala and provided over 25,000 hours of work. The product was distributed to stores in France, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, Japan, China, and the U.S. Interactive Ads were placed on billboards and bus stops throughout Europe. Press was garnered in Vogue, Marie Claire, and Elle, among others to highlight this powerful story of bridging the gap between artisan manufacturing and large retailers.
