Ibulliance: SAWA Life
A few weeks ago, Abigail swings by the showroom, brimming with news. I am thrilled to reconnect - our first time in over a year.
The first face of Ibu, Abigail graced our lookbooks, modeled our first Ibu looks . . . and, more than modeling . . . she lived and breathed the early life of the Ibu tribe. When LA called, she followed. I watched as Abigail took root in a new place; her ebullience will gather friends anywhere.
I'm working with women in Kenya, she tells me. They're amazing and making beads from recycled paper and my friend Emily and I handed them some ear buds and asked if they could bead some love into them and look at what they did! She's pulling out bags of colorfully beaded cords, chargers . . . tech with soul.
