This week on Keeping it Krischic’s pandemic special, Quarantelling Stories, I spoke with Laverne Delgado, the founder of So-Cal based Freedom and Fashion. The non-profit has helped countless women and children who have survived sex trafficking, domestic violence and “other abuse” heal through fashion and beauty.

“We do things that utilize fashion design and how intricately it is connected to our identity,” Delgado said. “We tie it to business and professional development, so that if our youth and women choose to go out in the field and pursue internships and jobs, they’re not only equipped skill-wise, as far as learning the fundamentals of fashion and beauty, but they’re also breaking through barriers and creating new neural pathways that will help them thrive in the workplace and their personal lives.”

Delgado herself is a survivor of domestic violence, and has personally seen how fashion, beauty and creativity in general can assist the post-traumatic healing process.

Watch the episode for Delgado’s full story of style and survival.

The tulle portion of this dress was actually an add-on! Revolve dresses are gorgeous, but can be a little short and open. This ballerina-esque tutu was a fashion-forward way to add some length to this bubblegum pink blazer dress from Majorelle. Coincidentally, the belt buckle was the same color as tulle! I added some vintage Fendi heels for a final haute touch!
