In Miami, Donna Karan showcases Haitian artisans
MIAMI (AP) — Fashion designer Donna Karan is promoting Haitian artisanship.
Through her Urban Zen Foundation, Karan has made handbags, accessories and furnishings produced by craftsmen in Haiti available to mainstream consumers.
Karan is among the curators of an exhibition of works by Haitian artisans that opened Friday in Miami's Little Haiti neighborhood. The "Discover Haiti Exhibition" will run at the Little Haiti Cultural Center for two months.
The items are of a quality that could sell in any mainstream home furnishings store. They were all handmade in Haiti from stone, wood, metals and textiles sourced or repurposed in the Caribbean country.
