    Clothing with Compassion

2nd Annual Flagstaff High-Fashion
              Event
                 Company Profile: dl-couture

Dl-couture is a custom clothing line by designer Danell Lynn. It specializes in
Haute Couture clothing fashioned in the traditional since of high sewing, custom
fit garments and featuring hand detail work. We are produced in small quantities
and are sweat shop and mass production free. Each garment is a work of art and
the time and love put into it is our statement of quality. Couturier Danell Lynn
learned much of her technique working as an assistant designer for Gerry Kelly
Couture out of Miami, FL.

Her Haute Couture line is itinerant, as she travels to her clients, all over the
world. Every garment is different; all embellishments are unique to that
particular piece of clothing. The qualities of fabrics are exquisite with detailed
trims and hand-finishing technique. Danell Lynn travels the world to find the
perfect fabrics for her clients and her garments. Blending the beauty of exotic
textiles and artistic inspiration, to create superior quality garments. Helping to
bring compassion back into fashion through purchasing fabrics from merchants
in developing countries, making cruelty free garments, and incorporating
humanitarian donations in our business plan.

The purchase of dl-couture clothing is more than a garment. Proceeds from every
custom gown go toward humanitarian aid, to help those in need while looking
gorgeous. We are believers in the heart of humanity and want to keep our goals
of blending elegance and goodwill into our company. Along with the Non-profits
we work with and donate to, we are the founders of Threading Hope, a sub-
company of dl-couture that makes personalized, hand made quilts for children in
need from third world countries.

Dl-couture is exclusive in that we only make 13 custom gowns a year, no matter
how many orders. This makes the time commitment to create a work of art a
possibility and makes the garment more of a limited edition. We do make a
sampling of garments (each still one of a kind) for runway shows that are sold at
the size created. The buyers can then pick up dl-couture at less than custom costs.

We currently only produce runway garments for our solo-fashion event that is
held annually in Flagstaff, Arizona on the First Friday in August. Where clients
can come and enjoy a beautiful city and an evening filled with high fashion, live
music and lots of local art as this is done in conjunction with the downtown First
Friday Art Walk.

To Perspective Sponsors:

Dl-couture is making plans for the annual Flagstaff Fashion Event held each
August in downtown, with a runway built out of the window of Grandon Gallery.
The success of this event is credited largely to the support of the City of Flagstaff.
This is our 2nd Annual event and we plan to make it larger and bring in more
visitors to boost the local economy. This is not a standard fundraising fashion
show as we do not charge event tickets or table seating; we offer this event free to
the community. The ability to promote and produce this event is made possib le
by sponsors who lend their names and financial support.

By participating as a sponsor, your organization will benefit from extended
exposure through media campaigns and promotional efforts directed toward the
supporters of dl-couture and our humanitarian ventures. For a small donation,
you’ll be able to enjoy excellent exposure to this important segment of your target
audience.

We have 4 levels of sponsorship packages, and 2 additional projects to sponsor of
Threading Hope and Highwire, as detailed on the enclosed sponsorship
commitment form. You can select the level of participation that best meets your
needs, and be secure in the knowledge that your sponsorship fee will be used to
help fund this annual event in the community and International dl-couture
projects of humanitarianism.

We’re counting on your support, and will be happy to answer any questions you
may have. Please fill out your sponsorship commitment form so we can begin
promoting you on all PR. Thank you in advance for your willingness to support
the efforts of dl-couture and make a difference in our community and
internationally through humanitarian projects of dl-couture. Once you are
decided on your sponsorship level please contact info@dl-couture.com to be sure
that level is available as we limit the number of sponsorships to better serve those
that donate. Once confirmed we will then provide you with a mailing address to
send your donation.
