A few weeks ago, I had the amazing opportunity to style the Cole + Parker photoshoot. The entire experience was unreal - Diana and Jeff - the creative heads behind Cole + Parker brought together the best, most entrepreneural group they could. We all had such a fun day - made amazing connections - and took unreal photos of their socks that start businesses. To see the rest of the pics from the shoot - head over to www.facebook.com/stylebylucurran.
These socks are the real deal! They would look amazing with a suit to amplify your ball'in status, the right pop of colour for that night out on the town, or to jazz up your track pant party at home. Men or women these socks are for you. Socks are the new accessory! Jump on board friendships!
What do I mean when I say these socks start businesses? Well, the gist is that 20% of proceeds from Cole + Parker socks are loaned to entrepreneurs in the developing world through Kiva thus creating a sustainable loop where one pair of socks starts multiple start ups.
If you haven’t heard of Kiva – it is the largest microfinance organization in the world having process over 400 million dollars of loans to entrepreneurs. Each loan is repaid with a 98% success rate and then loaned out to another entrepreneur (and on, and on and on).
Cole + Parker will be on Dragon's Den April 3rd - but in order to get there they need to sell $20K worth of socks, you can help them reach their goal here: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cole-and-parker-socks-that-start-businesses/x/2657503
Thanks again to the Cole + Parker team for this unreal opportunity! Can't wait until the next one!
