We all have family, we all have traveled from somewhere, we all want to go somewhere. You can’t blaze the same trail twice, but sometimes that new path leaves us feeling alone. The greatest thing we have in common that bonds us, is that we have all have lived our lives differently.
After Pageant of the People, we worked with Rock the Vote to make sure both attendees at our show and later, customers in our store could register to vote. We gave our staff the option to support this, even wear pins—the response was overwhelming. What does it mean to be an American? What does it mean to be an immigrant in America? Why is it important to get out and vote? We've been getting responses from designers and the brilliant minds at our show and sharing them on Instagram with the hashtag #OCforVoting
. We end with asking our store staff, the faces and foundation of our family.
