Ethical Fashion Africa

Vivienne Westwood's African inspired A/W collection is far from the glamour of the catwalk and glossy pages of Vogue. Not only has she drawn inspiration from African culture for her tribal designs and creations, but she employed 7000 Kenyans to handcraft the collection and featured many (and of course herself!) in the campaign. Shot in Nairobi by Juergen teller.

Levis - Legacy - Now Is Our Time

Inspiring words, ' Your life is your life, dont let it be clubbed into dank submission, be on the watch, there are ways out, there is a light somewhere' (Charles Bukowski). And beautiful cinematography, directed by Ralf Schmerberg. But, bad timing? The message is about life and spirit, not politics. People seem to forget 'Go Forth' is a campaign for non-profit organisations which help change the world and lives of others, sponsored by Levis. But, no doubt they would be criticised for being insensitive and seen to be encouraging youth rebellion and gangster behaviour if they continued to run the campaign.
