An Orange County-based youth nonprofit called Underground Grit will be hosting a fashion and art show featuring work created by formally incarcerated youths. The event is sponsored by LOUPN, a jewelry company in Los Angeles owned by Grace Nguyen.
“We’re thrilled to be a part of this fashion show,” said Nguyen. “We’re so looking forward to seeing their creations and seeing how the kids shine through with their creativity and self-expression.”
The fashion show is organized by fashion designer Mari Tibbetts based in Los Angeles.
“I’m just extremely humbled and honored to be able to work with an organization that provides love and hope to youth impacted by incarceration,” said Tibbetts. “There is so much talent within this organization and within the walls of juvenile halls”
The event will take place at 3 Whatney in Irvine, California on November 14 beginning at 5 p.m.
