Thank you for your post! On another good note, more creative things are happening.
We realize that sustainability and social responsibility have never been so important, especially in the apparel and retails industries. To promote creative thinking about these issues, lallitara and the MIT Council for the Arts have launched SariFixation, the first design contest of its kind.
It's simple: lallitara sends the registered participants secondhand sari fabric, and they supply the creativity. Contestants will then submit photos of their creations through an online portal and be in the running to win cool prizes like $2,500!
The mission behind SariFixation is threefold: First, to help promote the creative reuse of second-hand fabrics; second, to promote arts and crafts amongst the broader community; and third, to form an appreciation of sustainability in the retail and luxury goods industries. Please spread the word. Sarifixation.com
