Supporting Women Through Collaboration: Innovative Fashion, Entertainment, and History

by Mary DeArment August 28, 2016

If silk scarves made with sophisticated word puzzles represent innovative fashion, Hollywood represents entertainment, and museums represent history, then the latest collaboration of Scarves by Mary DeArment represents an artful melding of these three ideas. The socially conscious brand will be promoting the National Women's History Museum (NWHM) through 1) donation of scarves to a NWHM sponsored event and 2)  Emmy donations which must remain a secret until a week before the awards show...so stay tuned!

I so welcome this partnership with an organization that is all about raising awareness, educating, celebrating, and documenting women’s history. I love these endeavors as they are in perfect alignment with my personal philosophy and my company’s brand mission: empowering women one scarf at a time. This collaboration will also promote NWHM’s objective to educate, inspire, empower, and shape the future by integrating women's distinctive history into the culture and history of the United States. From the time I first discovered NWHM, I was particularly inspired by the story of founder Karen Staser; her mission resonates with me. I myself am living the life of the empowered woman, embracing the struggle to balance family, finances, and ambition while running my own business.

World Citizen Blue Silk Chiffon Scarf

My vision is to design luxury scarves which empower women of all ages and skin tones while inviting interesting, thought provoking conversations about the positive messages embedded in my artwork. With words such as Gender Equality, World Citizen, S.T.E.M. and Peace I construct visual puzzles, exquisite patterns, and geometric designs that magically fuse together to create a one-of-a-kind luxury scarf.

The non-profits with whom I have partnered throughout my career are run by intelligent, inspiring, and dedicated women. In fact, many have become my champions as they encourage me in my venture of establishing a luxury brand. They share with me concerns for health, education, and literacy. I am honored to be collaborating with the NWHM; this is a cause I can sink my teeth into.
