Less opportunities to work from home, less medical staff and vaccines, less access to sanitation, and less reliable food structure only begins to scratch the surface.We wanted to share an update from our makers in India on how they are coping.The rates of Covid infection continue to rise dramatically and less than 1% of the total population (of over 1.36 billion people) have been able to receive the vaccine.

An Evolution of Fashion

An Evolution of Fashion

Did you know the average American has a closet with five times more clothing when compared to 20 years ago?

Highlights on Inclusivity

Highlights on Inclusivity

In 2020 we saw the message of inclusivity get more attention than ever before and, this is a huge step in the right direction. I’ve noticed that many smaller brands do a great job of featuring models of all shapes, sizes, and skin tones, but many of the larger brands are lagging behind.
