Barton Sculptures’ “Carry Your Courage” and “Jade,” will be displayed at New York Fashion Week, Sept. 8-12 in NYC and will showcase beautiful accessories from the Wren and Roch philanthropic fashion team.
STAFFORD, Va. – May 8, 2017 – PRLog — Local psychotherapist and sculptor Laurie Barton and accessory designers Wren and Roch are excited to announce their upcoming collaboration for the 2017 Nolcha Shows. In support of Wren and Roch’s Carry Your Courage campaign, Barton will feature renditions of the brand’s signature accessories in her sculptures.
Nolcha shows is a leading award winning event held during New York Fashion Week, for global independent fashion designers to showcase their collections.
The Barton-Wren & Roch partnership stems from a shared goal of justice and equality for women. Barton as a practicing psychotherapist, and from Wren & Roch founders Karen Hansen and Laura Rachlin as survivors of sexual assault and champions of women’s rights.
The fashion powerhouse launched the Carry Your Courage campaign to help lift the stigma of guilt and shame surrounding rape and abuse. For Barton, it was a match made in heaven.
“This platform resonated with me immediately – I meet with people on a daily basis whose lives have been impacted by sexual assault. The moment I learned about the Carry Your Courage campaign, I knew I had to help support and expand their mission.”
Two of Barton’s four sculptures to be featured at Nolcha, Delilah (in Carry Your Courage) and Jade, will be sporting fashionable accessories from Wren and Roch–Delilah in Tan Hide cuff, carrying Ray of Moonlight, and Jade in Seeing Spots cuff.
A portion of the proceeds from the sales of all Barton’s Carry Your Courage and Jade limited-edition sculptures will go to the Wren & Roch Foundation, furthering their mission of preventing sexual abuse through education and awareness.
