Suzanne McKenzie, former art director of MOMA, is the founder of a great new retail site called Able Made. The site allows shoppers to give back to charity while shopping exclusive limited edition products from some of the hottest designers around. Currently, the site is featuring collaborations with Threadless, Lauren Bush's Lauren's Feed Foundation, Public School, and Project Runway Season 9 winner, Anya Ayoung Chee. Proceeds from every product sold on the site directly benefit organizations selected by the designers, including VH1's Save the Music Foundation, CFDA Foundation, and Pencils of Promise. I got the chance to speak with Suzanne all about this fabulous new shopping site.
If there's one thing people should take away from Able Made, it's that it is a company that wants the community to be involved and get inspired to take action. The site is not just about products and retail, but also about creating events and opportunities for people to talk about these great causes. We are totally excited to start shopping on Able Made and can't wait to see what future collaborations are to come!
