Item Description

One Item, Chosen from the Website: https://thisis4.com

Susie Crippen is a life explorer, pottery lover, nature enthusiast and clothing designer. She co-founded J Brand, the first American company to popularize the skinny jean, taking apart the paradigm of jeans so women could make them their own. Now, she’s doing the same with dresses, taking them out of the armoire and into real life. Her new line of dresses, 4, is named for the Ride 4 A Woman collective in Africa that is sewing them, and her birthday January 4. Originally from the east coast of the U.S., by way of Los Angeles, Crippen now lives in Kenya.

Everyone who comes in contact with the "4" dress benefits. From the African fabric merchants to the "Ride 4 A Woman" collective who sews the dresses to the consumers who live in them, this dress connects women around the world.
