full of opportunities to value what has been hand-crafted, to live and share respect, fairness, and esteem for human and nature.
Yet, full of variety, excitement, creativity, expressions, emotions, confidence, passion, and adverse impact on human and nature.
our wardobes reflect THE defective FASHION SYSTEM as most of the pieces involve human tragedies, health & safety issues, low wages, excessive overtimes, mock compliance, hidden subcontractors, harmful and devastating use of chemicals, water, materials, and energy.
My scrutiny started with the far-reaching story of my mother, shaping my values and mission with SoundofgarmentS
"Iwas five or six years old but I remember well...
the sound of the farm tractors is still in my ears, collecting all the people from the villages near by for cotton picking. Together with my mother and other relatives I joined the ride to the cotton farms since all the kids never have been left home alone. Arriving in the fields the farmers assigned us into groups and gave each these giant jute sacks. It was hot, very hot, and kids have been usually asked to sit under trees. However, most of the kids wanted to help their mothers. I was never able to just watch my mother filling the jute sacks under the burning sun, so I stepped over to help harvesting the cotton from the cracked bolls. The cotton burrs are dry, spiky and sharp soaring your hands, I still remember the sore on my fingertips. But, there was a competition on the harvest: the heavier the cotton sack, the more money you make."
I strongly believe in a world of fashion which develops a force for social justice and environmental responsibility.
