"Fashion has Two Purposes: Comfort and Love" - Coco Chanel

This is a philosophy I agree with as a designer. I think that fashion is such a popular art form that I wanted to use it to help others. This is why I started Strut, not only to provide young Houston-area designers with important opportunities to show off their talent, but to help those in need by providing children in schools around Houston with basic personal items they may not be able to afford. I hope that Strut will be able give young designers an important outlet to further their careers and spread love and help make the world a better place. 

Thank You

Emily Pennington, Founder, Strut
