The Official Launch Of Carousels and Lace Cashmere Sweaters For The Empowerment of Impoverished Women


I am officially launching my line of Carousels and Lace cashmere sweaters! I am so excited and proud of this line!   I will also have a line of angora sweaters and vegan sweaters coming to you soon!

Every Carousels and Lace clothing bought with the gold angel wings on the back makes you a guardian angel to a woman seeking asylum from persecution due to gender-related violence worldwide. I have collaborated with Michael Smith, the director of the refugee right program at East Bay Sanctuary.  On February 23rd, 2014, his holiness the Dalai Lama honored Michael Smith as an “Unsung Hero of Compassion” for his work with the East Bay Sanctuary Covenant.

The East Bay Sanctuary Covenant is an organization that provides free legal representation to indigent clients in need who have suffered gender violence.  A majority are victims of domestic violence or face persecution because of their race or sexual orientation. The East Bay Sanctuary Covenant has one of the largest affirmative asylum programs in the country.  They win nearly 97% of all their cases and they also do some defensive asylum.  They also provide services pro bono.

Currently, the East Bay Sanctuary Covenant represents about 300 victims of domestic violence, rape, same-sex discrimination, female genital cutting, and forced marriage cases per year. The women come from various backgrounds, from indigenous Guatemala, Congo, Mexico, and Central and South America.  The dedicated team at the East Bay Sanctuary Covenant do not want to turn these women away and they want to help as many women and children as possible.
The proceeds from the Carousels and Lace sweaters go to legal representation for the underprivileged clients and it will go to group therapy sessions. The therapy sessions will be run by a licensed clinician for our most traumatized clients. Carousels and Lace believes all women have the right to physical, spiritual and mental support so we can help pave a road towards healthy and happy lives for these women and their children.
My ultimate goal is to also one day give the option of employing these women at Carousels and Lace to further help their lives as my company grows.


My line of sweaters will be selling online and also on the exclusive, upscale Abbot Kinney Blvd. in Venice, California (Los Angeles).  The lovely boutique called Zingara will be carrying my sweaters.  Zingara is at 1507 Abbot Kinney Blvd. Venice, CA 90291.  The store phone number is 310-392-6424.
