Ms. Placed, a New Orleans based line of jewelry and accessories will host a website launch event including a fashion show and reception on February 12, 2011 at 10pm at the Country Club located at 634 Louisa St. in the Bywater New Orleans. This event is free and open to the public.
In an effort to empower their fellow young women living in post-Katrina New Orleans, Ms. Placed founders Allie Siegel and Elli Diaz have created a raw, edgy, and punk-inspired line of jewelry and hair accessories. Using recycled materials such as dominoes, vintage legos, and poker chips boasting original New-Orleans inspired designs, Ms. Placed is thrilled to present their first line at the February 12 launch event.
During the time following Katrina, the displaced Siegel and Diaz turned to creating Ms. Placed as an outlet for the pain and frustration they faced as victims of the hurricane. After years of honing their talents and careful craftsmanship, what has resulted is an undeniably unique and quirky line that represents the new side of New Orleans style.
Through Ms. Placed, Siegel and Diaz hope to create a new niche for handmade gifts outside of what the ever-popular mall stores have to offer. Ms. Placed reflects the individual styles of Siegel and Diaz- what Siegel describes as "dark and sexy, feminine but raw". With undercurrents of rockabilly style and pinup girl grace, Ms. Placed is on the verge of expanding into a brand synonymous with the unique strength and style of New Orleans
