Sometimes, designer fashion is about a whole lot more than catching the next biggest aesthetic craze, as is the case with these Vivienne Westwood bags, which puts its focus on ethical and socially conscious concerns.
Designed for the United Nation’s Ethical Fashion Programme, the ethically stylish collection features pieces which are exclusively made by hand in Nairobi from upcycled advertising banners and tents. In addition to being stylish, however, the bags are also notable because they provide a steady source of employment, empowerment and independence for some of the world’s most poor and disenfranchised women. In this way, the bags highlight how fashion and ethics don't have to be mutually exclusive and can in fact exist together in profitable harmony.
