KAREN WALKER VISIBLE
This season Karen Walker is working with the United Nations' ITC Ethical Fashion Initiative to create work in community groups of micro-artisans located in urban and rural areas of Kenya.
Karen Walker Eyewear and the Ethical Fashion Initiative are working together to produce pouches for the new Karen Walker Eyewear collection which will be included with every pair of Karen Walker Eyewear from Summer 2014. All the designs have been created with the style of craft and handy-work the artisans are most adept at as a starting point.
Taking the project a step further Karen Walker also chose to highlight some of the artisans themselves as this season's campaign stars.
This season's campaign features portraits of some of the people who work in and around the Ethical Fashion Initiative set against the landscape that surrounds them.
Once again Karen Walker brings us a collection built around strong shapes, exaggerated scale, intense colours and new ideas, along with re-inventions of favourite styles.
