There are parts of Africa where children are so stricken with poverty that they cannot attend school. Strict cultural rules about appearance require children to have a proper uniform and as most cannot afford basic necessities, their education is sacrificed. So what does this have to do with your wedding you may ask?
Enter Heather Hasson, a social entrepreneur who has combined her love for fashion with her passion to help others with FIGS (Fashion Inspired Global Sophistication). The concept is ‘threads for threads’–FIGS provides custom bow ties or neck ties for your special guy and your bridal party in a variety of designs. And in return for each tie purchased, FIGS gives a uniform to a child to attend school!
What a perfect concept for the modern bride who is both fashion forward and globally conscious!
