LaLucca Trunk Show at Green Grass, June 11th 2009

LaLucca’s ArtBag collection was presented at Green Grass Boutique to benefit Kids Hope United, in a one-of-a kind trunk show experience. Guests of the event had the opportunity of seeing the complete design process of these handbags: from the painting of the canvases to viewing the process of turning these art-pieces into unique clutches. During the afternoon, guests could also custom order their own LaLucca ArtBag.
A portion of the proceeds was donated to Kids Hope United.
