InspiredLuxe.com is an online curated shopping experience that brings alive the beauty of wearable-art forms by showcasing a global mix of artfully crafted jewelry, fashion and accessories, reflective of all those who live life in living color. The ecommerce site is dedicated to supporting the imagination of small-scale makers and showcasing artisanal treasures, traditions and innovations from around the world. The website keeps it fresh by adding new designers and products every few weeks to ensure that there is something to complement and accentuate the most discerning fashionistas..
Founder Denise Bradley-Tyson, also known as “Artisan Ambassador,” is known for her passion for culture and the arts, her love of travel, her keen eye for quality and originality, and her track record of launching and establishing brands since graduating from Stanford and Harvard Business School – all of which she brings to bear in her role as InspiredLuxe.com’s curator-in-chief.
Last month, InspiredLuxe.com was selected as the inaugural pop-up concept shop by the new Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center (located at 505 Howard Street at 1st Street in San Francisco). With its temporary Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center pop-up location until November 6th, InspiredLuxe.com became the first U.S. retailer to offer the beautiful Okapi handbag line, which is owned by celebrities and royals around the world, including First Lady Michelle Obama and Britain’s Princess Beatrice.
In addition, Inspired Luxe is committed to being “Glocal” in its daily searches for artisanal luxury accessible for every budget, and for everyone. In fact, at its special Saturday (Oct 24) pop-up shopping event from 10am – 2pm, it is featuring several emerging artisans from Oakland.
Inspired Luxe is equally passionate about supporting ethical fashion and social entrepreneurship. The site wants to help online shoppers “look good while doing good” by supporting artisans and brands that make a difference in the lives of others and in the communities where they are based. During the month of October, InspiredLuxe.com is supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and encouraging customers to shop its “Pinked In Collection”. A portion of the proceeds from those sales will be donated to local charity Friends of Faith, which provides information and financial support to organizations helping low income, underinsured women (and men) undergoing treatment for breast cancer.
