Yali’s Carry On® Celebrating the Art of Healing
at the MCA Store

Tues, Aug 23, 2011, 5–7 pm

Introducing Yali Derman, former patient at Children’s Memorial Hospital, successful handbag designer and nursing student at Penn. Yali will be available one day only to sign the newest design in her Yali’s Carry On® Collection.

This limited-edition tote bag is designed to symbolize the challenges and triumphs of her cancer experience at Children’s Memorial Hospital.

Each bag is adorned by a beautiful peacock, a bird representing renewal. The paisley-patterned tail recalls the bandanas that cancer patients often wear. The hearts crowning the peacock’s head emphasize love from family and friends.

Available for purchase at the MCA Store in black or grey microfiber, or khaki canvas.

Proceeds benefit K.I.D.S.S. for Kids, Affiliated Organization of Children’s Memorial Hospital, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
