satara fashion






what's cooler than fashion that supports an awesome cause? not much, that's what. Satara helps underprivileged women in India make a start with their lives. these women are seamstresses, mothers, sisters, daughters, entrepreneurs, but most importantly inspiration. each woman's story is so inspiring, you can read the various stories here.

as the foundation aptly states: "Satara represents women for women, education for education, dreams for dreams."

i also enjoyed this paragraph on the site, it's the perfect summary of what they stand for.
"Satara strives for the achievement of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, most notably the eradication of poverty, the promotion of gender equality, and the establishment of global partnerships for development. Our specific path to this destination is in bringing together cutting-edge Western fashion design with the empowerment of talented but underprivileged women in developing regions."

what's even better is that the clothing is something i was drawn to before i even knew about the cause behind it. the soft color palette and dream-like essence the clothing gives off makes for an ethereal sort of effect. i adore it!

hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
