IPSA's Fair Trade Fashion Show

IPSA has been proud to bring several fair trade food producers and sellers to campus to educate us about fair trade practices in the agricultural world, from cocoa to coffee. Through these events, we've learned the importance of fair trade in ensuring livable wages to the workers, safe working conditions, and employing environmentally sound company practices. But fair trade is not just about food. Everything from the clothes we wear to the pens we write with have impacts on the workers who make them. We are excited to partner with the NYC Fair Trade Coalition to bring local fashion designers who adhere to Fair Trade business practices in their production of clothing, jewelry and accessories. At the Fair Trade Fashion Show, you will have the opportunity to learn about these designers and also see models (all Wagner students) wearing their pieces. Join us for a night of fun, fashion, and fair trade!

Designers featured: Soham Dave, Rising Tide Fair Trade, Pokuasi, KNO Clothing, Cambodian Threads, Global Goods Partners, Marquet, and My Fair Label.

Food: Fair trade fruit trays and a table for Kopali Organics (chocolate dessert samples), and Fair Trade wine from Fairhills Fairtrade Wines.
