One thing we felt strongly about is that we wanted these new items of clothing made by tailors in Africa - supporting African businesses and celebrating their own cultural styles and fashion.
Each artist chose their own fabric, was measured and selected the style of outfit they would like to wear. An exciting shopping experience many of them had never had before!
This group of artists in Uganda are all former child soldiers from Kony's LRA. They are working on restoring their lives and supporting their families through the work of their hands. Thank you for celebrating them!
