NOT FOR SALE.
“There are more than 30 million slaves in the world today, more than at any other point in human history”. What a disgusting fact. We are so far advanced in so many areas such as technology and medicine yet we can’t even get the simple task of freedom right. And the fact that it has got worse as time goes on, not better, is absolutely baffling.
Fashion label AllSaints Spitalfields have teamed up with anti-human trafficking campaigner’s Not For Sale and produced a fashion forward collection that not only supports the cause but practice what it preaches. To really appreciate this concept, watch this.
Proceeds from the line will benefit Not For Sale’s work to combat human trafficking globally, and producers will promote the shared vision of Not For Sale and AllSaints to prevent forced labour and end human trafficking. Not For Sale equips and mobilizes Smart Activists to deploy innovative solutions to re-abolish slavery – in their own backyards and across the globe. Together we can end slavery in our lifetime.
I find a lot of fashion that is done for charity or a cause comprises of unappealing design; tacky/unwearable/too loud. You can think of at least one shocker you’ve seen, can’t you. But I am happy to see that AllSaints have not gone this path. Their Not For Sale collection is indi, on-trend, wearable and totally affordable selling for around $65 each.
From what I can see, you can get your hands on a tee through All Saints UK or US websites www.us.allsaints.com/not_for_sale/landing/ or at http://notforsalestore.org/store/allsaints/. This is my favourite design out of the collection below. Oversized tee perfection and a cool design that states the message not screams it. Luv luv luv.
Hope you enjoyed a fun and safe weekend full of freedom.
