Miss Universe Contestants Walk The Ramp Wearing Pre-Loved Clothes. That’s Setting A Great Example For Sustainability!

December 03, 2021 | by Jasveen Kaur Sawhney

Fashion for years has been an expression for people around the globe. This medium of expression and our zest to try the trending cuts makes us a hoarder of many but loyal lovers of none. With fashion growing every day and newer trends dropping every season, the clothing industry has added its fair share to the increasing textile waste and pollution. While many brands big and small are taking steps towards a greener world, an initiative by the current Miss Universe pageant contestants is making headlines. Touring Israel ahead of the competition in Eilat slated for December 12, the pageant finalists modelled for a Hanukkah fashion show produced by Haboydem, a Jerusalem based second-hand clothing store and women’s rehabilitation centre. Supporting the voice of change, the models paraded wearing a pre-loved closet.

Sharing further about the special fashion show, Stephanie Strauch, stylist at Haboydem said in a statement “Many of our Haboydem clients come to us for ideological reasons, while others come to support and encourage our workers during their rehabilitation. And while many of our buyers do it by choice and ideology, others are primarily motivated by financial reasons.”

Apart from working closely with fashion that is conscious, the social project ever since its inception has been offering employment opportunities for people with disabilities and through its inbuilt community of therapists it is helping employees keep up with their mental health (isn’t that amazing). A display of its ideas. The one-of-a-kind fashion show acted as a platform to encourage the second-hand market, which too can produce trends and products worth a certified quality.

While the pandemic has certainly been a boon for fashion that cares for the environment. A proof of this is the growing number of thrift stores across the globe. Many significant luxury fashion giants and influential names like singer Billie Eilish too are becoming advocates of change, encouraging their fans to shop from charity events, weaving a base for the conscious consumer. And in a world that breathes on trends, the idea of conscious living has already made its way. The globe is altering for the good and we are hopeful to read about more such instances in the coming years.

This Sustainable Fashion Brand Sells Preloved Clothes And Give Back To Society By Donating The Sale Proceeds. This Is Great!
