Another covetable eyewear collection, another inspiring campaign. This season Karen Walker is working with the United Nations’ ITC Ethical Fashion Initiative to create work in community groups of micro-artisans located in Kenya. Each pair of sunglasses from the new collection comes with an eyewear pouch handmade by Kenyan artisans, who are the stars of this season’s campaign. They include Maasai beaders, metal casters, craftsmen and artists – all of whom have have acquired or refined their skills through the Ethical Fashion Initiative. Look out for the collection which launches on February 10th!
