In an effort to assist Project Medishare for Haiti’s ongoing medical relief efforts in Haiti, Bogosse has designed a gorgeous Limited Edition Collection. Created in partnership with Nordstrom, the aptly named L’union Fait La Force Limited Edition will debut at the Nordstrom Galleria Dallas Saturday, April 10 between 1-5 p.m. Fifty-percent of the proceeds from this exclusive collection will be going to Project Medishare to provide financial relief to help rebuild Haiti.
This collection is very special to the Haitian-born Bogosse founders, Patrick and Fabrice Tardieu who are hosting three in-store Nordstrom public appearances throughout April to launch the line and to promote their relief initiative. Only 600 shirts have been made in eight different styles; 75 shirts per style. The inside labels of the back collar boast the colors of the Haitian flag. The line will be carried in three locations: Nordstrom Galleria, Dallas; Aventura, Miami; and Dadeland Mall, Miami.
The following two personal appearance events will be in Miami, where the brand is headquartered, at Dadeland on Saturday, April 24, and at Aventura on Saturday, May 8, 2010.
“We have been aware of the monumental achievements and work that Dr. Green and Project Medishare have been providing for some time. Both Project Medishare and Bogosse have strong relationships with the people of Haiti; reaching out to those in our community is synergistic,” Patrick Tardieu, CEO, Bogosse said. “The earthquake in Haiti will forever impact our lives. We are humbled to stand together with Project Medishare—their initiatives over the last 15 years have been instrumental in bettering the lives of Haitians. We look forward to working with Project Medishare and Dr. Green for a long time to come; this is just the beginning. If our dollars can help provide medical care for one person much less many, then the hope is we can affect lives and make a difference in Haiti, which is critical, not just now but ongoing.”
