VOGUEVERT.com Launch: New Eco-Luxury E-Commerce Site

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 23, 2012) - VOGUEVERT.com, a new online platform bringing together high-end sustainable accessories has just launched. Founder Kathy Hamm's inspiration was to make high-quality fashion easily accessible to busy, stylish women who believe in the importance of the environment. VOGUEVERT currently offers handbags, jewelry, and other accessories. For the VOGUEVERT shopper, conscience and style are interrelated.

Founder Kathy Hamm's vision of creating an online platform for style and sustainability goes beyond traditional commerce. Featuring eco-conscious guest curators, VOGUEVERT.com ensures the best in available green design. Organic products, ethical sourcing, and upcycled goods are transformed into unique, daring pieces made with expert craftsmanship. In addition, she has launched the VOGUEVERT Charitable Foundation: a portion of each purchase goes to support up-and-coming designers who embrace sustainable practices.

Hamm says of VOGUEVERT's origins: "I tried to find an eco-friendly bag that was as fashion-forward as the latest 'it' bag. After months of searching, I finally had tracked down a selection of green designers sharing my sense of ethics. With this list in hand, VOGUEVERT was born."

At present, Hamm is working full-time on advancing environmentally friendly practices. In addition to creating an online shopping destination that would increase the appeal of eco-conscious design, VOGUEVERT goes one step further. There are many ethical, talented designers and artisans who make unique, luxurious pieces that prioritize beauty, function, and sustainability. As part of its mission, the VOGUEVERT Charitable Foundation will fund scholarships for those that prioritize conscious, quality design.

Every purchase made through VOGUEVERT contributes $1 to the VOGUEVERT Charitable Foundation, along with 10% of revenues. The Foundation directly supports the vision and work of up-and-coming designers with a commitment to making the world a kinder and less wasteful place.
