“Everyone needs to feel special and be recognized,” says Lori Felt.”My fashion with a cause conveys fun and spreads joy. Lori Diamond Art Designs is my way to make a small difference in the world.”
NEW PARTNERSHIP FOR LORI DIAMOND ART DESIGN FIRMRecently, Lori Felt has been touched by an angel, Joyce Benes, a pediatric nurse for medically fragile children for the past 14 years. Benes has been inspired to start a nonprofit for children on hospice that will provide an angel’s tote filled with comfort items and a special gift for each child.
The nonprofit will be in loving memory of a boy with cancer in her care who touched her heart.
“While I was taking care of him, it really touched my heart and something that should have filled me with sadness, instead filled me with love and compassion,” says Benes. “It empowered me to see all the outpouring of love and support from complete strangers to this family and this boy.”
They met at the fundraiser for Designing 4 Hope, a nonprofit that creates room makeovers for critically ill children to rest, recover, heal, and dream, a partner of Lori Diamond Art Designs.
So far, Lori has created the nonprofit’s logo and will design socks made by Sockprints for the gift totes and ones to be wrapped around the child’s neck brace to make it look cute and less frightening to other children.
LORI DIAMOND ART’S MISSION
Lori Felt, who launched her design career at 55, has already made her mark in the fashion world.
In only a few short years, her business has grown to include unique sneaker designs, a new fabric, towel, furniture, and apparel line, plus more. Lori’s numerous partnerships with charities also reveal her dedication to charitable fundraising as a part of her artistic mission.
2019 was a breakout year for Lori Diamond Art, as her merchandise has made its way to stores across the country. In an age of digital commerce, Lori remains devoted to offering unique and affordable styles for sale in brick-and-mortar stores, a commitment that stems from her desire to support buying locally and supporting our communities.
Lori’s one-of-a-kind designs can be found at numerous stores across North America, like The Mermaid Store, where her unique mermaid headbands are for sale, Baggins Shoes in British Columbia, Canada, where her exclusive high top sneakers are carried, and in stores across the Jersey shore, where other items designed by Lori are available. But Lori’s work can also be purchased online; beyond her Baggins Shoe store sneaker line (also sold in their online store), Lori Diamond Art designs are carried by Shop Vida Fashions, and her furniture designs and towels are for sale through Society 6 Apparel.
Lori has also enlisted the help of two recent collaborators for her new fabric line. In conjunction with Lori’s graphic designers, the team has produced 26 fabrics, all designed by Lori, that are available to interior designers, event and party planners, and talented seamstresses in search of the perfect fabric design for a particular occasion.
Fundraising remains at the forefront of Lori’s artistic mission, with her efforts focused on three specific areas: children with cancer, breast cancer and autism research. Lori has partnered with Designing 4 Hope with the mission of designing customized apparel geared specifically towards children battling cancer. Her desire is to have these designs available throughout hospitals with the goal of offering custom clothes for patients and their families to wear throughout the treatment and recovery process to help boost morale.
Designs by Lori have been featured in such publications as Bride Guide, BOLD Favor, and more. Be on the lookout for additional coverage in the months to come as Lori unveils a new line of designs!
