Live in the Grey is thrilled to have partnered with trailblazing fashion site Refinery29 to co-host a salon dinner Tuesday night at one of Austin, Texas’ hottest restaurants, Uchiko. The evening was filled with stimulating conversation on following your passions, embracing risk, and what it truly means to live in the grey.

Each guest received a reversible FEED 1 bag in support of Lauren Bush Lauren’s mission to feed the children of the world. The purchase of each bag provides school meals to 1 child for 1 year.
