Aspen Fashion Week is proud to name the FEED Foundation as one of our partners for 2012. The FEED Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and funds to ensure nutritious school means for all children as a first step to improving the global food system.
Acclaimed model and activist, Lauren Bush Lauren, co-founded the organization in 2006 when she created the FEED 1 Bag, a reversible burlap and organic cotton bag reminiscent of the bags of food distributed by WFP, to help raise funds and awareness around these school feeding operations. It was stamped with “FEED the children of the world” and the number ‘1’ to signify that each bag feeds one child in school for one year.
Okay, so you have booked your tickets to Aspen Fashion Week, March 11-14, 2012, but now you’re wondering about how to best dress for the mountain lifestyle? We’ve got you covered. Here are some great tips for traveling to our beautiful wintery wonderland.
• Fabulous winter boots are a must - they will keep your toes warm and the tread will help keep you on your feet. Our expert recommendation? The Roots Women’s Tall Sheepskin Motorcycle Boot.
• Layering is key - when you have the right base layers on, then you can still wear your most stylish ensembles. We love Marmot’s Wm’s Lightweight Bottom and Neve’s Amo Neve Crewneck. These layers provide so much warmth, without the bulk. Très chic!
