Handmade Luxury Meets Social Change
I was thrilled to attend the VOZ SS14 runway show during fashion week because I really love the brands movement to empower indigenous artisans and their art forms through collaborative fashion design. Voz’s garments are hand made and feature premium quality natural and ecological fibers, hand dyed and woven to celebrate ancient traditions.
The SS14 collection was filled with beautiful woven pieces, cotton and silk dresses and really pretty sweaters that looked so soft and cozy for the transition from winter to spring.
Here is a video I took of the final walk during the show.
The VOZ designers work intimately with artisans in communities in Southern Chile to envision, prototype and finalize the fashion collections. In turn, these artisans receive name credit and earn royalties for their designs featured in the collection.
Seeing the clothes go down the runway live allowed me to really see the beautiful craftsmanship and the exquisite details. The pieces really are beautiful and I am excited to see how this brand grows and expands its collections for seasons to come.
What do you think of the collection?
