I have always loved Karen Walker’s Eyewear. They are always so fun and bold.
When Karen Walker visited my Uni a few weeks ago she spoke to us about her involvement with Simone Cipriani ( I have spoken about Simone HERE and HERE) and the UN’s Ethical Fashion Initiative Program. Karen shared her experience of Africa and working with the local artisans to produce the cases for her current eyewear campaign ‘Visible’.
Karen and Simone explained how the program is not about charity but it is about empowerment through work. I remember it was such a feel-good lecture, I was so impressed that the pure motivation behind this project was to simply help give these less fortunate people the opportunity to have a better quality of life.
