To create Eco-friendly fashionable clothing while helping to bring awareness to the plight of developing communities across the world via sustainable, trendy and artistic pieces that will socially impact and unite communities globally.
We are very big on style and trends. So how can we closely match our competitors in the fashion industry while creating a socially and environmentally impactful product line? We love color, we loathe animal products, we love love love attractive clothing!!! Nothing is more luxurious than making sure that every aspect of you, is healthy.
Jacques Louis is transparently known as a brand that mainly focuses on the environment, love, empathy and people through a developed experience strategy. The pieces are all created in New York City and Haiti with fabrics made from recycled plastics, Tencel, organic cotton, bamboo, hemp, Ankara and fabric scraps. The production process for our clothing does not include mass production. We are dedicated to producing products that do not gravely impact the planet. Spending more time on care of the environment and less time on cheap alternatives that will ultimately affect the planet.
Which social issue are we addressing with Jacques Louis?
GOAL 1: No Poverty - creating jobs for men and women living in developing communities in Haiti and providing them with rural income generating education in order to help boast their design and business acumen. This will essentially empower these communities and they will not have to rely on the brand business or the government to sustain their families.
GOAL 4: Quality Education - providing quality education for young girls in Haiti. To date the "Haitian Girls Pop" Project has successfully raised $1600 in funding which will go towards funding the schooling of young girls in Haiti.
GOAL 5: Gender Equality - Providing education and workshops for women living in Haiti, with opportunity to spread to various developing countries.
How will we help to empower Haiti?
"Where poverty is prevalent, there is not much time to focus on being a creative. In Haiti there are many great artists. Haiti has great potential for economic growth and social equality, however the country is often easily influenced by organizations that do not exactly have the country's best interest at hand. Furthermore these organizations are not purely interested in social impact. My purpose is to focus on building communities in Haiti by partnering with creatives of the Haitian Diaspora, to design projects that will empower the people of the country. Starting with Haitian Girls Pop, that address child molestation and slavery in Haiti. Tackling one purpose at a time." ~ Naika Colas
