Laura Ketchum 'Look Good, Do Good:' Clothing Start-up Offers Double Incentive

Kavalena Clothing internships allow students to invest in fashion and ministry.

Senior Laura Ketchum’s two favorite scarves may be comfortable, but she likes these neck warmers as more than a fashion statement. “(The scarves) are made slave-free … I finally feel like I’m promoting something that I actually would wear and support and pay money for,” said Ketchum. Ketchum purchased her scarves from Kavalena Clothing, a small business start-up that celebrated its first birthday this month, signaling a year of working out its motto “look good, do good.” By donating the proceeds of its sales to organizations around the world, Kavalena Clothing helps people in need while providing shoppers with style.
