Surely at first glance this appears to be basic imagery of apparel, racks, boxes... did you know we deployed all of this and much, much more to The OC and clothed the women of the Foundation For Women Warriors organization? Nearly $6000 in brand new clothing donations were transacted that day.
<sigh> How I long for the day when the Bloomies, Barney's and Nordies of the world to ring me up and invite me to a completely comped shopping spree. Well, until that happens for me ...I'll make it happen for my sisters in arms! I'm gearing up for Department Store PopUp LA, curated for Female Veterans.

While we're all loving New York, the City is loving humankind. NYFW15 was filled with the fashionable and the philanthropic. Donned in "We Are NYFW" t's, women of all backgrounds strutted the runways and left their afflictions at the bottom of the catwalk "T".

Each bow tie or bag purchased at ECCOCI locale ships a new ECCOCI ensemble to a transitioning Female Veteran.
The campaign continues… and this time in…Charlotte! We certainly felt like royalty when asked to sponsor the fashion show fundraiser in benefit of the Homes for Heroes org. Geared with the Tatyana collection, Nuvula and Vavavida brands, we headed full speed to “Queen City”.
The uniform…vintage frocks by Tatyana; the war paint…1950’s inspired by celebrity stylist Kimberley Bosso. Female Veterans joined forces with PinUp Models and performed a “Fash Mob” (a fashion flash mob), to battle PTSD and TBI on behalf of the Operation IV organization. Allies also included Paul Mitchell Sherman Oaks for vintage hair and wardrobe by yours truly.
Boop-oop-a-doop! Tatyana has joined the fight against PTSD and TBI serving as the official apparel brand of the Operation IV 1940's & 50's themed fundraising gala this Saturday at CBS Studios, SHOP the vintage collection here. #tatyanaforvets #tfv
