In 2012, actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family) founded Tie the Knot, a non-profit focused on marriage equality. Over the past 5 years, Tie the Knot has raised over $1M and grown into realizing global efforts to advocate for LGBTQ rights and marriage equality beyond the states.
Tie the Knot raises money by releasing limited-run seasonal collections of various products, including bow ties and jewelry. When a friend of Jesse and his husband, Justin, wore a unique necklace to a dinner party, Justin took notice and tracked down the designer via Twitter. The designer, Clarkliving agent Lizz Roberts, responded immediately and the Tie the Knot x LZZR partnership blossomed quickly and organically.
To date, LZZR has designed three collections in partnership with Tie the Knot, with the most recent collection having launched just this month. Each piece is emblazoned with Tie the Knot’s signature owl logo–a symbol of foresight, perspective, and patience. Items from all of their collaborations can be purchased via http://tietheknot.org and http://lzzrjewelry.com
