This is a fashion show for activists


Slavery is a $150 billion industry affecting an estimated 21 million people worldwide. We are all connected to it - which means we all have the power to fix it. The fashion industry is one of the many culprits contributing to this problem, and the cure is Fair Trade Fashion. Join us as we celebrate the stories and styles from artisans around the world while raising money and awareness to end modern slavery.

Hosted by Bead & Reel and Free the Slaves
