At Taylor Vinters, we love to support budding entrepreneurs and grow with them supporting them along their journey. We decided to co-host a festive drinks and give Kari and her fellow designers a chance to show case their products.
It was a lot of fun and (obviously to support the cause!) I just had to purchase a pair of her divine shoes too!”
