Nikki and Maayan, the talented design duo behind The Lake and Stars, have long been champions of women’s rights. Their promotional campaigns often push the envelope, but always with a feminist slant. And we applaud their efforts to include a diverse range of body types, ages and ethnicities in their model choices in a world where most brands employ a very narrow world view of what “sexy” is. Naturally, when I approached them about donating something to the raffle for Astral Bodies, they jumped at the chance, citing personal examples of using Planned Parenthood’s services as young, uninsured women in NYC when they were first launching their label. We look forward to seeing what innovative, edgy garment they send us for the mysterious donation!
