The designer Abi Ferrin and the organization The Akola Project are two teams that I admire. They have taken their talents and helped disadvantaged women in both Africa and Nepal. With the help of their friends in Africa and Nepal they have created beautiful clothing and jewelry. Abi’s flagship store is in West Village in Dallas, and The Akola Project will be opening a storefront in Deep Ellum on October the 8th. To read more go to or
