Can fashion change the world?
I think the answer to that is that fashion has always been shaping the world for better or for worse.
The question then becomes: how do we use fashion to change the world?
But sometimes all it takes is one small idea, one glance of a vision and the courage to speak up. When I heard about the tsunami in Japan, I imagined a community (Chictopia) of people wearing red- a sea of red in visual support for a hurt nation.
Note on the Pray for Japan badges:
I was so inspired by the email from Chictopia, I made these felt badges on Saturday (also because I lack red clothing).
I’m proud to be a part of Chictopia- thanks for listening to my lengthy email and realizing what was only an idea to begin with.
