Fashion Haitian Leaders

Haitian Designer Hassan Pierre

I Love reading about Haitian Designers in the industry!!

According to MariClaire:

With his debut women’s wear line WISB, Haitian designer Hassan Pierre aims to  merge style with environmental and social responsibility.  However, this is  easier said than done.  After all, take a look at all the fledgling brands  creating crunchy, hippy-dippy clothes better suited for a college student in  Vermont than a working girl in NYC.  Luckily for us, Pierre has achieved his  goal.

His clothing is contemporary and fun, with textiles and patterns that are  on trend and flattering.  Oh, and did I mention that this 20-something already  has a celeb fanbase including Veronica Webb, Hilary Rhoda, and Hannah Bronfman?  I’d say WISB is definitely the way fashion  should be. Each piece from WISB is made of the finest organic materials, such as silk,  bamboo, and organic cotton. 

 And the clothing is green from start to finish!  Even the hang tags are made of seeded paper and soy ink so when they are put  into the ground, they sprout plants.  For WISB’s lookbook, Pierre hired model Mari Malek, a Sudanese refugee  who has an incredible organization, the Southern Sudan Initiatives, that helps Sudanese  women escape to a better life. 

Coincidentally, she also modeled for Organic by John Patrick’s SS12 presentation.
