Promoting solidarity through fashion

Every year, La Friperie Solidaire (Abbé Pierre Foundation and Emmaüs) handles 400 tonnes of clothes. Raw material of the solidarity economy, they’re first sorted, and then either sent to countries that need them, or recycled. For Christmas, the association organised a fashion show. The name of this collection is Panache Solidaire, or Spirit of Solidarity. It’s a name that points to the joys that can be found in intercultural exchange, and tolerance.
