On October 10th 2016, during the Fashion Awards ceremony, the Arab Fashion Council has released the ‘’Sew for Syria’’ short film and call-for-action to build workshops and factories at the Syrian Refugee Camp in Jordan.
”Sew for Syria” is a project sponsored by a non-profit organization, CanaTurk, under the patronage of the Arab Fashion Council, that aims to train and teach the Syrian Women at the Refugee camps the arts of tailoring so they could enter the working society through the gate of the creative economy.
Arab Fashion Council offered its support to the “Brides Do Good” initiative, in which the brides to be can purchase pre-owned designer and sample wedding gowns from designers like Vera Wang, Elie Saab and Monique Lhuillier from Bicester Village in the UK or the Dubai Ladies Club.
These purchases assist with educational programming for young girls. Brides Do Good donates up to two thirds of sales to its charity partners in places such as Ethiopia and Nigeria to put an end to child marriage.
Talk about giving back to a worthy cause and getting a fabulous garment while doing so. Aren’t you a bride to be- but still want to support? Well you can donate your dress in hopes that it can fulfil another woman’s dream of a designer wedding gown.
