About Henry & Belle
More than jeans, Henry & Belle is an endearing love story about family, fashion and philanthropy… Henry Mann and his wife Belle started designing in the garment district of Chicago in 1931. Inspired by Belle’s confident character and chic sophistication, Henry designed each style with Belle as his muse. They always focused on the highest quality fabrics and finishes. As their success grew, so did their commitment to give back to their community. Today the Mann family continues to fulfill this tradition of craftsmanship and humanitarianism. By wearing Henry & Belle jeans, you help raise awareness and funds for diverse issues we support in your local community.

About Aviva Rose Jewelry
A love of jewelry and an instinctive ability to create is what led Pamela Cohen to where she is today: the designer, founder, owner and creator of Aviva Rose. Living in the suburbs of Chicago, Pamela uses her passion and enthusiasm to find unique and unusual pieces from around the world. She gives much of the credit of her unique creativity to her two muses: her daughters Franki Aviva and Gabi Rose. The name of her line represents that commitment and love, and her desire to continually create a variety of magnificent pieces seems boundless.

Hope to see you there!
