It’s time to get a new perspective on your thoughts of fashion bloggers. Jeanne Grey, of the chic blog Grey Layers, put to work her savvy business skills and brought together a team of philanthropist style bloggers.
Stepping off the runway of Orchard Street in New York City, I was greeted to yet another showroom of trendsetters at Reed Space for the “Shop Our Closet” event. This style affair donated 20% of its proceeds to the American Cancer Society.
Grey, alongside Eliezer Infante, Jamal Jackson, Candice Stewart, and Joel Moore gathered their favorite pieces from their closet for a great cause.
It seems almost everyone is a blogger these days and who can blame anyone for showing off his or her style when it’s so easy to become your own media. This gang shows us how they are more than what they wear.
The whole mindset about bloggers [is that they] are always about “themselves,” where as this shows more of who we really are,” mentions Grey.
These young philanthropists wanted to make a statement about how important it is to give back to the community and bring awareness for things that truly matter.
Infante goes on to say that “When it comes to being a public figure you should have something to say.”
From snapbacks to studded shoes there was a lot to be said about this event. The turnout not only pulled fans of the bloggers, but also gained attention from fellow bloggers such as Rachel from Jag Lever and future business collaborators.
It was a professional experience and a surprise,” mentions Jackson.
With beats blazing out the stereo – beyond the event closing time – the bloggers were ecstatic to welcome everyone into their world of style all while making a difference. Check out more from the event below.
