AREA STARS SHINES
Area Stars was founded as a sustainable brand to empower women of all backgrounds, styles and shapes to feel like a STAR in their own AREA!
As a lifestyle brand, we have always had at our core, a belief in giving back to our community. We have been able to promote the handmade designs of artisans from around the world, especially those who are female and brown. Here in the USA, we have made it a priority to donate unused samples and excess production of our designs, to Housing Works,(https://www.housingworks.org/), a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping those with AIDS/HIV. The vast majority of Housing Works’ recipients are from black and brown communities.
Now we are launching a new era at our brand,with “AREA STARS SHINES,”a permanent commitment to shine a light onblack and brown businesses and entrepreneurs. We will do so,by leveraging our 25 years of fashion industry experiences and expertise, so that we can help build a more inclusive tomorrow. If you, or someone you know, is black or brown, and is in need of professional expertise and assistance, yet cannot afford it, we welcome them to our new program. Our services will include consultation and ongoing mentorship in the fields of merchandising, production, sourcing, finance, social media, wholesale and e-commerce. It’s simple and easy to get involved. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and let us know your idea or problem, and we will do all we can to help you maximize your results, at no cost to you.
Our goal is to empower our black and brown communities to SHINE bright and be a bigger part of the fashion collective.
