Event description

Description

Originally from Sheridan, Arkansas Christopher Belt is now a handbag designer in New York City and has been seen in New York Fashion Week. In June he broke a record at the prestigious Independent Handbag Designer Awards. Winning three awards, Christopher’s career is taking off and his handbags will now be sold at Neiman Marcus. Join us for the chance to meet Christopher and view his winning handbag prototypes, which will be housed permanently at ESSE Purse Museum.

In conjunction with this special homecoming event, Christopher has invited one of his favorite causes, Comfort Cases, to join. Comfort Cases stemmed from founder Rob Scheer’s personal foster care experience 40 years ago when he remembers transitioning from place to place with his belongings in a trash bag. When he and his partner recently adopted four children, each also came home with their belongings in trash bags. Comfort Cases’s mission is to give children the dignity, love, and respect they deserve by ensuring a brand new bag with comforting items for their transitions. As seen on the Ellen Show and the Today Show, Rob Scheer is excited to join this event to share the work of Comfort Cases.

You won’t want to miss libations, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and special remarks from both Christopher Belt and Rob Scheer. Let’s come together to celebrate the accomplishments of Arkansas native Christopher Belt and to lift up the wonderful and important work of Rob Scheer and Comfort Cases. *Limited tickets are available.
