Gilt + Hatch +Christy Turlington

On Monday, my friend and fellow chatty girl Sarah and I headed to Lower Manhattan to join Chirsty Turlington, Gilt Children and Gilt City for the exclusive launch of the maternity line HATCH by twobirds on GILT this week where portions of the proceeds will go to Christy’s charity – Every Mother Counts.

The fashion filled event was held at über swank W NEW YORK Downtown with a room buzzing with fabulous peeps!

The evening started out with a welcome toast from Rachel Garrett GM of Gilt Children who introduced HATCH designer Ariane Goldman.

Ariane talked about here own frustration when she was unable to find maternity wear that was chic yet comfortable and could be worn after pregnancy, so she created her own maternity wear collection. See the video below!

She explained that her partnership with GILT came about from her experience browsing and shopping on the site late at night while pregnant when her friends were out on the town. When the maternity line came about she knew GILT Children would be a perfect fit. She said that this partnership and clothing line was her “dream come true“.  The HATCH collection is designed to allow women to wear the clothing before, during and after the pregnancy.

Gilt Children is exclusively launching the Hatch Collection before it is available anywhere else. The sale kicks off yesterday at 12 PM ET and runs until September 30th. Gilt members will get 20% off and a portion of the proceeds will go to Christy’s charity, Every Mother Counts. You can visit the sale by going to: http://www.gilt.com/sale/children/hatch-maternity-appa . 

Christy Turlington Burns showed us an excerpt of her documentary No Woman, No Cry. I had seen this film in its entirety over the summer as part of Oprah’s OWN screening committee, and was moved by it. I think this film should be shown in middle schools and high schools throughout the nation. When speaking to Christy about the film and it’s impact it had on me, she told me that she is holding a screening at her child’s middle school for that very reason. We need to start educating younger generations about these issues so they be a part improving maternal and child health globally.

That's me in the pink!

The Q&A after the preview was engaging and audience members asked how they could help be a part of Christy’s charity – Every Mother Counts.  Every Mother Counts is an advocacy and mobilization campaign to increase support for maternal and child health.

I was able to get a quick one on one with Christy and asked her , “How can WE get involved with Every Mother Counts?” 

She said—>

I would love to be a part of this organization in anyway I can. I also encourage you all to visit the site for EVER MOTHER COUNTS and find out how to get involved.  Here is a quick trailer –>
