Phelicia Dell of Vital Voices Haiti Chapter Featured in Miami Herald for Handbag Collection

Haitian artisan Phelicia Dell, member of the Vital Voices Haiti Chapter, is featured in the Miami Herald today, September 2. The pieces created by Dell and included in her Ve`Ve` Collections are more than fashion statements, they are "emblem[s] of identity," making a name for Dell and her work within Haiti and beyond, as the Miami Herald describes. Earlier this year, Dell was selected as the best emerging handbag designer in a global competition held by designer and Vital Voices board member Diane von Furstenberg. The article focuses on Dell's life and experiences as a woman designer:

"Her own journey from struggling artist to sought-after handbag designer in just four years is itself a story about life after tragedy, and about what women in poor countries can do once empowered."
