What is this all about ?

The answer is very simple- it  is about fairness, social justice, and dignity.

We believe that words “Slavery”, “Forced Labor” or  ”Discrimination” should not be pronounced in the same sentence with “fashion”.

For this reason, we took upon ourselves to promote and educate the engines of the fashion industry on those topics, and to help eradicate those ugly words from the industry´s reputation and lexicon.
