Meet the Fashion Insiders Who Are Giving Back in a Beautiful Way

It's not every day that fashion and philanthropy mix, so when they do, it's likely a story worth telling—and this particular story is extremely close to my heart. Just a few weeks ago, I had the privilege of traveling to Colombia with the nonprofit Style Saves and jewelry brand Miansai for a trip visiting multiple orphanages, bringing them needed supplies and endless amounts of love. To give you a little background, Style Saves raises money for underprivileged students around the world.

"Style Saves works with a wide range of partners, including retailers, designers, hospitality, art, and more to provide these students with necessary materials for school. The mission is to give students the self-confidence and assurance they need to succeed, both academically and personally," the nonprofit's site describes.

Founder Rachael Russell Saiger saw an opportunity to turn the fashion industry's profitability into projects that could profit children in need. With a mission like that, I couldn't help but fish as much information as possible out of Saiger and her husband, Miansai founder Michael, while on the trip. After just a few days, my heart was so full from the time spent with the children and all that I had learned and experienced. Ahead, read all the beautiful details on how these two fashion insiders founded a company that is doing good all over the world.

Shop more Miansai on its website, and I highly recommend seeing how you can get involved with Style Saves.
