The legendary British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood celebrates the successful continuation of the successful partnership with the Ethical Fashion Initiative( she started five years ago), a laudable project launched by the ITC (International Trade Centre an UN Agency working in the realm of ethical fashion to emancipate the Africa people from poverty through the work and its training) with a limited edition of Africa bags collection, made by artisans in Kenya. Over the past five years the involvement of the fashion designer has supported thousands of micro-producers from marginalized communities in these regions, developing their artisan skills and improving their financial prospects. This has promoted the growth of sustainable business instead of aid dependency. Craftsmanship and ideas on the move are impressed in the Africa bags that resonate with the activism of the queen of punk, are embodied in more the design, materials used  that raise questions on critical issues such as climate change and waste.

La leggendaria fashion designer inglese Vivienne Westwood celebrate la felice prosecuzione della partnership con l’ Ethical Fashion Initiative (da lei avviata cinque anni fa), un lodevole progetto lanciato dall’ ITC (Centro del Commercio Internazionale Trade Centre un’ Agenzia dell’ ONU che opera nell’ ambito della moda ethical per emancipare le popolazioni dell’ Africa dalla povertà attraverso il lavoro e la sua formazione) con  una limited edition  della collezione di Africa bags, realizzate da artigiani in Kenya. Nell’ arco di cinque anni il coinvolgimento della stilista ha sostenuto migliaia di micro-produttori provenienti da comunità che vivono ai margini in queste regioni, consolidando il loro talento da artigiani e migliorando la loro situazione finanziaria. Ciò ha promosso la crescita di un’ impresa sostenibile, diversamente dalla dipendenza derivante dagli aiuti umanitari. Artigianalità e idee in movimento sono impresse nelle Africa bags che risuonano dell’ attivismo della regina del, racchiuse nel design e nei materiali usati che si interrogano su problematiche critiche quali il cambiamento climatico e i rifiuti.
