Fierce Fashion News: Project Artisan

Designer: Plum Vintage

 
As a beauty and fashion blogger, I’m always looking for something new and different, especially when it comes to designers.  While the big names are always fun to look for, there are many other designers who aren’t that well known and not always easy to find.  Project Artisan does that!  This newly launched E-Commerce site aims to bring together emerging designers in fashion, jewelry, accessories, and home goods, as well as those already established into one place.  This site doesn’t feature just any designers though.  Robin Keyser, the site’s creator, looks for progressive designers whose work is produced in small quantities using local materials as well as made by workers who aren’t mistreated (i.e made in sweat shops, etc.).    She wanted to design a place where someone can find high quality items with little negative impact on the environment.  She also cares about the story behind the design, which is why Project Artisan has a really cool feature where you can watch videos about the designer and their collections.

The site is brand new and is regularly updating its list of designers.  For now, the jewelry collections are definitely worth checking out, especially if you’re an accessory addict like me! I’ll warn you that the price points may seem a bit scary if you’re on a budget, but at least you can have a looksie and be inspired!

Here are some more sneak peeks of what you’ll find there!
