Runway in the Factory: Fashion's Unheard Voices
During my freshman year of college I met some amazing people who have since gone on to do some mind-blowing things in the world. Thelma, a dear friend, spent several years living in Burma working with the people on the Thai-Burma border. She's currently getting ready to go back there.
Yesterday she sent out an email announcing that she has a project on Kickstarter- a "'pop-up' online fashion magazine that features the perspectives and voices of garment workers in Southeast Asia...to show how fashion can be found in unexpected places."
I think that, in light of the recent factory collapse in Bangladesh that killed over 1100 people, this project is especially important. Let's give the factory workers a voice.
Visit Thelma's Kickstarter page and donate right here.
