It's Fashion Revolution 2022 week, a global event that was conceptualised after the horror of the Rana Plaza collapse in 2013. The aim has been to bring attention + respect to workers + the planet. The movement has gone from strength to strength every year + we are so happy to show you who's behind our bags. We could not do what we do without our manufacturing partners + this is an ode to them: the fabric makers, hardware builders + manufacturing teams that bring our collections to life.
Nick Pearce is Co-founder + CEO of HoMie, a Melbourne based retail brand that uses its profits to provide training + employment opportunities for youth experiencing homelessness. We caught up with Nick to talk about how HoMie came about + the challenges facing young people living rough.
Welcoming in a new year often brings with it plans for lofty resolutions. However, instead of feeling like a failure in week one of January with broken promises to self - we think it's best to be gentle on yourself + make an easy (and do-able) list of farewells / hellos for the year ahead. The Sans Beast team have put together a shortlist of things we're leaving behind in 2019 + things we're going to manifest. Read on for a dose of inspiration for making 2020 a year of illuminated action.
"As we approach the end of 2019, not only are we getting ready to bid farewell to another year, it's time also to ponder the fact that it's not just a new year that's about to start - it's a new decade. 5 years ago, Sans Beast wasn't even a thought in my mind. Fast-forwarding to the dawn of the 2020's - and I couldn't imagine being in a different place. Love, CW."
Happy 1st Birthday to us! A reflection on the year that was, as Sans Beast turns one. Read about our highs + lows - and ultimately, our happiness + gratitude, in arriving at our first birthday in one piece, ready to embrace what's next.
