When Kenya & Couture Marry: Karen Walker Visible

Dope, dope, dope. I’m an over-enthusiastic fan of Karen Walker’s simple, yet statement worthy eyewear. 

This season Karen Walker has partnered with United Nations’ ITC Ethical Fashion Initiative as a part of her new KAREN WALKER VISIBLE campaign to create work in community groups of micro-artisans located in Kenya. The Ethical Fashion Initiative charge is to promote sustainable business in economically disadvantaged areas, and provide business aid over hand-out dependency. Which I’m here for. 

The Kenyan artisans of the Ethical Fashion Initiative will produce pouches and they’ll come with every pair of sunglasses from her new collection. The pouches will also be available for purchase separately. Take a look at the Kenyan models in the photo gallery. They’re actually the artisans who designed the pouches. The collection launches February 10th. Will you cop? 

Did I tell you I’m here for this type of cultural melting pot-ism? Yeah.

– Angel
