Veronica Brett is donating 10% of all sales from the Pop-Up Shop to Young Survival Coalition. YSC was the first nonprofit organization to focus exclusively on the unique needs of young women affected by breast cancer.  Founded by young survivors for young survivors, YSC offers free programs, support, and educational materials so that young women with breast cancer know they are not alone. www.youngsurvival.org

A Yale-trained architect, Patricia Brett founded Veronica Brett in 2010.  Inspired by her sister, a 15-year survivor, Patricia created this luxury swimwear collection to address the unique fashion needs of women who have experienced breast surgery.  Since that time, Veronica Brett has developed a following, becoming known for its sophisticated silhouettes, luxurious fabrics, and minimalist detailing.  In essence, Veronica Brett has evolved into a fashion-forward swimwear collection for all women seeking classic chic and a fantastic fit.

Veronica Brett launched in May 2010, with an event at Elie Tahari, East Hampton, and has been featured in Harper’s BAZAAR, Oprah Magazine, as well as numerous other fashion publications.

Veronica Brett swimwear is available at www.veronicabrett.com and select boutiques in Seattle, Scottsdale, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Canada, and Switzerland.  For a complete list of retailers, see http://veronicabrett.com/boutiques Veronica Brett is also sold on-line at SOMA.
