Jennie Garth Designs Reusable Bag


Actress Jennie Garth of 90210 fame has teamed up with Green Works natural cleaners to design and promote a new environmentally-friendly 100% recycled cotton bag. The designer bag is available for sale online for $10. For every bag sold, Green Works will donate $3.65 to the Sierra Club. The remaining amount of $6.35 covers the cost of the bag.

“Like many moms, I’m on a journey to living a more natural lifestyle without sacrificing quality and convenience,” said Garth. “Working with the Green Works team to design this bag is another opportunity to share the message about natural cleaning, while supporting a deserving organization like the Sierra Club.”

Designer Spotlight: Ève Gravel

Given this young designer’s uncommon talent and a broad vision, it is hardly surprising to note that Ève Gravel is now considered one of Quebec’s most promising fashion creators. Just 27 years old, she already heads Ève Gravel, the self-named label which for 10 seasons now, has been attracting attention with a decidedly personal style characterized by freshness, daring and flawless cuts.

After working with renowned designers Georges Lévesque, Kevin Alwood (Nevik) and Kathleen Kovats for three years, the graduate of Ottawa’s Richard Robinson Academy of Fashion Design left for Europe to tap into other sources of inspiration. By then, the idea of setting up her own company and making her personal vision of fashion available to the public was already beginning to take shape.

With her well-known determination, just months after her return, Eve Gravel founded her eponymous company, Eve Gravel. And, rather than limiting her approach, season after season, the she has come up with collections designed for strong, uncompromising women, an approach that has attracted an ever-growing clientele.

As a result of the label’s success, the young designer’s innovative collections can now be found throughout Canada, in boutiques and major department stores such as The Bay and Simon’s. Recently discovered by a New York agent, the Eve Gravel label will soon be available to our neighbours to the south.

Eve Gravel says, “The clothes are slightly underground. They’re edgy but accessible. “I design for a woman who wants to make a strong impression.” Eve Gravel’s clothing do the double duty beautifully — career appropriate for day and sexed up for night. And with prices that won’t break the bank fans are rapidly growing. For more information on her newests collection check out her website @ Eve Gravel.

Below are some pictures of her collection.
