T. I. A.

This Is Africa.

A country known for its vibrant colours, landmarks and of course poverty.
However, after Alexa Chung wrote in Vogue on the subject of Ethical Issues, I noticed that there are amazing brands that have everything fair trade and from Africa at affordable prices.

Here are some of my favourite designs.

Ali Hewson for Edun

And some non African items but still inspired by the country.

Isabel Marant SS 2012.

Sarong of a coral reef & payment is donated to charity.
D&G Sandals
Roger Vivier beaded bags
British DJ SBTRKT.

Most pieces are of African material and part of every payment is in donation to the designs chosen African Charity. 
Truly Inspiring.
