The Hand of Fashion - - FOREWORD - Www.eth­i­cal­fash­ion­ini­tia­

The Ar­ti­san. 1. A per­son skilled in an ap­plied art; a craftsper­son. 2. A per­son or company that makes a high-qual­ity or dis­tinc­tive prod­uct in small quan­ti­ties, usu­ally by hand or us­ing tra­di­tional meth­ods.

Wel­come to The Hand of Fash­ion, the mag­a­zine that sup­ports the ITC Eth­i­cal Fash­ion Ini­tia­tive, our peo­ple, our prod­ucts, our part­ners and com­mu­ni­ties around the world, this planet we call Earth. We bring this all to you in part­ner­ship with Black Mag­a­zine. As the fash­ion world moves beyond mass pro­duc­tion, the new lux­ury is hand-made and let’s be clear, many hands make great work! In this first is­sue we fea­ture news from the ITC EFI world, in­ter­views and sto­ries with some of our de­signer part­ners, in depth ar­ti­cles about some of the artists and cre­atives that work with us, a photo shoot of Stella Jean’s SS15 col­lec­tion in Paris by Thom Kerr and a 36 page photo es­say fea­tur­ing our ar­ti­sans them­selves from just one of our hubs in Koro­go­cho, Kenya by Louis Nderi.

So please do en­joy this first edi­tion, we will be back with the next edi­tion of The Hand of Fash­ion in 2015. Much love, Black and the ITC Eth­i­cal Fash­ion Ini­tia­tive
