today’s purefix: be a biographer challenge!

07/16/2010

hey gang, hope you are all lovely, staying cool, and have a nice weekend planned.

for today’s purefix, i wanted to let you all in on an incredible project my new pal kyle westaway is work on.  ‘be a biographer’ is an open-source design challenge that invites the general public to help tell stories of victims and survivors of the sex trade industry through their designs.  ‘biographe,’ the brand behind this project, promotes the holistic restoration of women exploited from the commercial sex trade in southeast asia, teaching them marketable job skills in fashion design and production, and employs them in a positive work environment while earning a sustainable living wage.

this is the future happening now guys!  please get behind this amazing project and blast it far and wide!
