It’s an interesting time in the fashion industry where sustainability and ethics are becoming equally as important as luxury and trends. And when a brand combines all of these so effortlessly, I fall in love.

Made in America ~ imogene + willie

Imogene+Willie was founded on the same principles that built our country: hard and honest work will lead to success. Their grandparents and parents taught them to work hard and live humbly, to value family and friendships. They were assembly line workers, entrepreneurs, clerks, WWII veterans, to name a few. No job was too big or too small; they lived to support their family and to pass on their wisdom.

By exporting so many jobs overseas, we’ve lost our roots. Carrie and Matt are bringing those values back. Their small shop in Nashville, Tennessee, along with artists they partner with, are making it possible to own Made in America treasures. Their denim jeans are unwashed, so they fit and form to your body! Check out their home grown denim for both men and women, along with tops, accessories, and one of a kind pieces you won’t find anywhere else.

Each piece of denim has it’s own personality and tells a unique story. What will yours be? Will it start in America?

Fair Fashion Fridays ~ Sseko Designs

Fair Fashion Fridays is a time to recognize fashion that brings awareness to worldly issues and supports worthwhile causes. For the first Fair Fashion Friday, I’m showcasing Sseko Designs.

Sseko Designs (say-ko) is a sandal and accessory company founded on the simple idea that empowering women spawns change. Sseko Designs creates opportunities for women in Uganda to earn wages so they can attend university. Due to the lack of women’s rights, higher education is a mere dream for many women in Uganda. Sseko Designs makes it a reality by employing women for the few months between secondary education (high school) and university. They will go on to become doctors, lawyers, and teachers. These women will be the influence their society needs to make lasting changes. They are the hope and the inspiration for many young girls and future Sseko dreamers.

It all started with a simple sandal design with interchangeable ribbons. It has grown now to include beautiful leather handbags, clutches, and now scarves, all handmade with materials from Uganda, Kenya, and Ethiopia (furthering the financial impact on their community.) Adding these pieces will undeniably enhance your wardrobe. Go ahead, take a peek at ssekodesigns.com!
