Last night, p.45 celebrated their 14th birthday with the launch of 4 CURE, their exclusive products by four designers commissioned to benefit CURE, acronym Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy.
Motivated by a personal connection to the disorder and the organization, p.45 invited four designers to create custom pieces inspired by the organization’s signature color red. The designers include: Lizzie Fortunato and Eugenia Kim from New York and Chicago-based designers Sarah McGuire and Abigail Glaum-Lathbury.
For the 4CURE product range at p.45, Lizzie Fortunato employs her signature mix of materials in a charm keychain. Eugenia Kim introduces her Daniella silk headband in a limited edition red floral print. Sarah McGuire features her crescent moon on a red leather cord. Abigail Glaum-Lathbury creates a dress in her sought-after architectural style. p.45 donated 100% of the product sales to CURE whose mission it is to help find a cure for epilepsy and protect children from the devastation of seizures and the side effects of medications.
