We began with one scarf (the Bezuayhu, above) and have now grown to feature extensive scarf designs and a leather line! fashionABLE’s original partnership (with Mocha Club partner Women at Risk) has grown from 3 to 30 women who hand-weave scarves. Then, with the leather launch, fashionABLE partners with a manufacturer whose workforce is made up of 40 women out of 70 total employees. With this new partnership, fashionABLE aims to strengthen companies who have fair wage and hiring practices for women.
Pretty amazing what can happen in just 3 years when you invest in a woman. We love this new video fashionABLE is launching today, featuring one of our favorite ladies, (and one of the originals!) Mulu.
And to celebrate, there’s a 30% off SALE going on for the next 3 days over at livefashionABLE.com. On scarves, leather, everything. Yah, you’re gonna want to take advantage of that. 3 years later, the heart of the mission remains true — that through your purchase, you are ABLE to provide opportunity, and a woman is ABLE to have a new choice.
Happy Birthday fashionABLE!
