Liz Uy for Rags2Riches

This season, Rags2Riches creates a social statement together with their latest Style Advocate and their latest collection featuring conscientious design, artisanal skills and inspiring stories from their partner artisan from all over the country.

What is Rags2Riches? It is a for-profit social enterprise based in Manila, Philippines, creating eco-ethical fashion and home accessories out of up cycled scrap cloth, organic materials and indigenous fabrics by working with artisans living in less privileged communities across the country.

The Rags2Riches Fall/Holiday 2013 Collection fuses the glitz and glamour of the Art Deco movement, with the subtle intricacy of Artesanal Craft. The collection, dubbed as ARTEsenal Luxe, also fuses timeless silhouettes with a selection of traditional and contemporary techniques.

The launch happened last Thursday and I was super bummed I had to miss it because I have work. Each piece is STUNNING and really to DIE for! They’re definitely on my wish list for December! The detail, colors and craftsmanship is just perfect!

Each piece in this collection illustrates the tactile richness of different handmade textures, as well as the artful interpretations of the lives and values of the artisans, producing eco – ethical fashion and home accessories out of recycled scrap cloth, organic materials and indigenous fabrics as they strive to weave better futures for the families and communities where these skilled individuals hail from.

Inspired by one of the Philippines’ most influential fashion icons and this season’s Rags2Riches Style Advocate, Liz Uy for Rags2Riches ARTEsenal Luxe makes a bold statement that glamour can be good for the world, and that style can have soul and substance. The celebrity stylist and fashion editor-at-large truly believes that one’s personal style should always make a statement, and that one’s accessories should go way beyond being just a decorative piece, possessing a story and life of its own.

Liz Uy as the latest Style Advocate of Rags2Riches and the collection’s stories coming from different artisans around the country creates a social statement in itself, fusing style and substance together. For those who seek fashion and home accessories with great design and are equally captivated and inspired by the stories they tell, the Liz Uy for Rags2Riches ARTEsenal Luxe is for you.
