Architecting Out of the Box: An Exciting Mixture of Architecture and Fashion
Written by Maria Perrou - Monday, 11 May 2015

If there is no path available to walk on, we create our own. This is what Vicky Lavranou, an architect from Greece, decided to do. When all her life was filled with mixtures of tough building materials such as cement, wire, metal and so forth, she faced a shiny moment or a “moment of truth,” as we sometimes call it. She decided to participate in a contest hosted by HERMES and had the opportunity to experiment with the design of handbags. From that moment onwards, a new brand was on the way. Vicky began recycling her architectural drawings to patterns and covers for new fashion design items. ‘RAinpatterns' had just been born. Combining love for usability, fashion, and design, she began creating handbags and other accessory items infusing all her creativity, vision and beliefs.

When we, at EFW, speak to brands about how their ideas were born, we are often inspired – we learn, we grow, we go through the steps of their individual stories and see what they saw and feel what they felt. It’s a big part of what the Ethical Fashion industry is about. Every once in a while you meet people who are exceptionally raw, exceptionally artistic and real, and live by all that their hearts inspire them to live by. This is what I have found in Inkspoon.

ModaFusion: Talent Rises from Inner City Despair

Turning 30 is one of those watershed moments that we approach with mixed emotions. It is a time when we often take stock of the first chapter of our life and decide to change course, take a risk, or step out of our comfort zone. When French journalist Nadine Gonzalez turned 30, her friends came together and gave her a trip to Rio to celebrate. While the usual tourist spots caught her attention, what stirred her soul was the artistic spirit she discovered in the marginalized communities in the city. Determined to change the impoverished economy and lack of opportunity in this inner-city region, Nadine created ModaFusion with Andrea Fasanello, an organization that promotes women’s savoir-faire and spotlights the talents within Rio’s communities. Working with prostitutes and ex-prisoners, the goal is to substitute the drug economy with the fashion economy and improve the standard of living.
