FORT BEND EDUCATION FOUNDATION PARTNERS WITH KENDRA SCOTT

Fort Bend Education Foundation (FBEF) partnered with Kendra Scott to celebrate their store opening in Sugar Land with the launch of their Fall Collection, benefiting the teachers and schools in FBISD. The Launch Party was held August 9 for Kendra Scott Sugar Land, located at First Colony Mall across from Black Walnut Cafe. The company donated 20 percent of proceeds from the evening Launch Party to FBEF.

The store will showcase the coveted Kendra Scott Color Bar, offering shoppers a unique, interactive experience to create customized jewelry in minutes and leave with it in hand. The Color Bar features a touch screen display monitor, iPads and a kaleidoscope of gemstones and jewelry silhouettes in both gold and rhodium silver settings.

The shelves will boast signature and seasonal jewelry collections in an array of rich hues that embody the Kendra Scott look. Specifically, the Kendra Scott Fall ‘17 collection will take center stage and introduce local shoppers to the breathtaking style of Kendra Scott.

The Kendra Scott Company was founded on the mantra “Family, Fashion, Philanthropy” and as the brand has grown, it continues to hold philanthropy as one of its core values, with a special passion for women and children’s causes. The Kendra Scott Sugar Land store joins a number of upscale retailers in time for back-to-school shopping.
