Karen Walker Visible Eyewear Collection #Kenya

For her latest ‘Visible’ collection, Kiwi eyewear designer Karen Walker worked with the United Nations’ Ethical Fashion Initiative to encourage ‘sustainable business over aid dependency’ by enabling marginalized artisans to increase their skills and produce directly for brands that distribute products worldwide. Walker worked with artisans to produce pouches that accompany each pair of glasses. She also took the project one step further, by having the artisans model for the new campaign. The campaign shot by photographer Derek Henderson include the machinists, cutters, tailors, production managers and metal workers. View the lookbook below:
