Soap Hope, the brainchild of social entrepreneurs Sarah Boukadoum and Craig Tirritilli, has popped up at the Shops at Park Lane. The dynamic Dallas duo is committed to empowering women to escape poverty,
Profits from the natural and eco-friendly products they sell — ranging from cosmetics to cookware — are volunteered as interest-free loans that help disadvantaged women start businesses and support their families.
Recently the pair hosted a fashion show featuring “inspirational” merchandise from socially conscious businesses. Eight models carried Relan bags, sported Roma Boots and wore Mahya mineral makeup —all lines represented at the Soap Hope store.
Relan bags are made with recycled vinyl signs, banners and billboards; Roma Boots donates one pair of weatherproof boots to a needy child for every new pair sold.
The models also sported fashions from local boutique Milk & Honey, while guests noshed on little bites, drank wine and listened to tunes spun by DJ Danny Munoz.
Spotted in the socially conscious crowd: Jennifer Jacquez, Adriana Montoya, Priscilla Jacquez, John Montez, Ashton Theiss, Samuel Bistria (CEO of Roma Boots), Sarah Bardsley, Brandon Frye, Aleta Frye, Laura Mauther, Aaron Blue, Sirisha Reddy, Karina Ramirez, Lydia Verala, Des Straw, and Dawn and Rick Ledesma.
