Last week I had the amazing pleasure to attend an event celebrating the launch of Rebecca Taylor's "Little White Dress" collection benefiting Baby Buggy. I’ve always been a fan of Rebecca’s design esthetic. To me, her designs are feminine and ethereal with amazing detail to structure for the female shape and form. Her fabrics move with the body, and make you feel so pretty! I also believe her clothes are truly made with the working mother in mind (Rebecca is a mom herself, so totally gets it!) When it came to her new Little White Dress collection, she did not disappoint. I know they say every woman should own a little black dress, but after seeing this collection, I would have to add little white dress to that phrase as well.
The Little White Dress was inspired by a trip Rebecca took to Turks and Caicos where she realized how versatile a white dress can be. She created the capsule collection to accommodate a women’s busy schedule from work to dinner or beachside cocktails, allowing the perfect white dress for every summertime occasion.
Not only was I able to soak in new dresses for summer, but I also got to participate in a charity that is quickly becoming near and dear to my heart, Baby Buggy. Baby Buggy’s mission is to provide families in need with essential gear, clothing, products and services for children 0 through 14 with the goal of improving their safety, health and well-being.
When I asked Rebecca how she started working with Baby Buggy she said, “We share an office building and one day I mistakenly got off on their floor and learned more about Baby Buggy. I am a mother of three and really believe in this cause and wanted to get involved. I am really impressed by how hard baby buggy works to help families in need and the impact they have on these families’ lives. It’s really touching to me. I loved working with them and hope we can work together again soon.”
Rebecca Taylor designs, including pieces from this collection, can be found here.
