After the shooting at Parkland, the thought of my two children never coming home compelled me to create something tangible for March for Our Lives. I'm a designer who has been in the fashion industry for 15 years. I no longer see fashion—or any part of our daily lives—as separate from politics. I felt the need to create something that reflects this moment. And the beliefs that many of us share.
The symbolism seen in ancient Roman and Greek coins inspired my design: Coin #1. It serves an emblem of support for #MarchForOurLives, inspired by the students demanding change to our country's gun laws. It reflects the power each of us hold to support companies and brands that take a stand for gun reform.
Coin #1 is meant to be worn, shared, and held onto like the conviction it embodies.
