The State Dinner: Gifts for Sasha and Malia

Posted: Mar 16 2016

The State Dinner

 

 

Last Thursday we had the honour of finding out that our collection had just been selected as part of a monumental event being held at the White House. 
As part of the State Visit, the first between Canada and the United States in 19 years,  Sophie Gregoire Trudeau and Justin Trudeau made sure to represent Canadian designers during each part of the day. 
Upon arrival at the White House, the Trudeau's presented the Obama's with gifts on behalf of Canada. For Sasha and Malia Obama, we were so honoured to have our Maverick Shawls gifted to the young ladies. 
The gifting happened just prior to a Let Girls Learn event, an organization in support of young female education worldwide, and a cause Michelle Obama is active in supporting. As a subject matter we're very passionate about, this could not have been more meaningful. 
To us, a Maverick is 'a person who shows independence of thought and action' and our line is designed for strong, empowered females. We hope both Sasha and Malia love them! 
Thank you to Sophie Gregoire Trudeau and Justin Trudeau for your support of Canadian designers and for including our line as a small part in this event.  
And thank you to Sophie Gregoire Trudeau and Michelle Obama for supporting female education, entrepreneurship, and empowerment through the conversations you're having, relationships you're building, and example you're setting.
