NEW YORK – Explorers Club Supports Chinese Indigenous Communities through Fashion
Last night, I covered New York Fashion Week at The Explorer’s Club with a much wider mission and vision for our planet. The Club partnered with Roots Studio , who support the Miao and Buyi communities in Guizhou, China, through their indigenous fashion.
The artisans of these communities use their own techniques, which are shown by Root Studio, to help bridge cultures through digital licensing and royalty generation to support their cultural heritage. Remembering this, the evening showcased Roots Studio’s new label RURBAN, featuring their most recent collection, BOK JOY.
Let’s take a look!
The co-created fashion event packed The Club, and it was a very interesting evening.
