After spending twenty-five, long years, as a corporate executive, Director of Creative Product Development & Asia Operations, in the Gift Industry, Christine felt it was time to blend her talents & knowledge with a more purposeful pursuit… making an impact on artists’ lives around the world. Christine’s daughter, Madison, jumped at the opportunity to join her mother on this empowering journey to discover new possibilities of hope through their shared self-expression of fashion, as well as their love & compassion for others.
Mother & Daughter are driven to CREATE something bigger than themselves.
"We started HIGH 5 HUMANS with a vision to Empower Women
to feel FASHIONABLE, BEAUTIFUL & most importantly, CONFIDENT."
So often the daily grind seems to be more stuff, more often, with the need for immediate gratification. Life is moving at a fast pace that can rob us of moments to savor. After sixteen years living in the fast paced society of New York, Christine & Madison shifted to a slower, more mindful way of being by turning their attention towards appreciating life and those we share it with.
Mother & Daughter bonding often happens over fashion accessories, and this compassionate duo appreciates a unique style, with an artistic flair. As talented artists themselves, they are thrilled that their bond of Style & Art has brought them a successful business opportunity to share with many artists around the globe. Their passion has brought them to launch High 5 Humans, an authentic, on-line Boutique & Design Community. The High 5 Humans team strives for positive change in humanity & to give opportunity worldwide to those that are less fortunate.
“At High 5 Humans we tell the story of beautiful people who make beautiful products.”- Madison
The duo has always admired the human expression through fashion & art… constantly visiting small artisan galleries & boutiques on their travels. They love discovering unique products and the talented artisans that create them. "An artisan handcrafted item pulls you in... there’s an impact it has on the maker as well as the viewer", says Madison.
This Mother-Daughter pair has a connection like no other, with a sisterly bond and a common love of the arts they spread their passion and inspiration to everyone they meet. They love supporting Fair Trade & Artisan made communities to build a bridge between the USA and developing countries globally.
HIGH 5 Humans is building relationships with so many nice humans along the way with Artisan Made & Ethically Sourced accessories for the mindful & modern woman. Beautiful handmade products can inspire one’s spirit to chase their dreams, set out on new adventures and connect with the world around us. Being a Global Design Community means…Together we are better. As Global Citizens we are proud to support Fair Trade Principles as well as Handmade Accessories. Christine & Madison focus on the talented artisans who’s traditional artistry has been passed down from generation to generation, which brings a story of hope with every product they offer.
