Last year, I participated in Dressember — a global challenge wherein one wears a dress every day in December to raise money to fight human trafficking. Wearing a dress in the dead of winter is a bit odd. Therefore, it’s a brilliant opportunity to remind others that slavery is the highest it’s every been in history, but we can do something about it. We can end slavery in our lifetime. We just have to act.
Obviously, as a founder and executive at ethical fashion brand, Trades of Hope — I love using fashion to bring hope to the darkest parts of the world. That’s why I’m doing the Dressember challenge again this year! You heard (read?) that right! I am going to be wearing a dress every day in December. (Yes, even all the way over here living in London!)
But that’s not all… Dressember formally asked me to design a dress (shop The Elisabeth dress here!) for their annual collection! Of course I said yes enthusiastically! I just designed a clothing line for Elegantees, so it was a crazy honor to be asked to be a 2019 Dressember designer as well back-to-back. (I can properly add “clothing designer” to my resume now — and IG bio, let’s be honest — without hesitation!)
You can read more about why this design means so much to me on Dressember’s website here!
Let me just say, you can totally do this! It’s a fun fashion challenge, and it’s sooo worth it! I raised $1,000 last year to bring people out of slavery just by wearing a dress. It’s a no brainer. However, if you’re still on the fence, I can assure you:
Interested but still not sure? Follow me on Instagram to see the behind the scenes of how I do it! Also, feel free to message me any questions!
Let’s end slavery in our lifetime, one dress at a time! X
