Vogue Italia and yoox.com once again partner on a new initiative to support Fashion 4 Development, joining forces in an ongoing project which features exclusive creations by the most talented artists selected and curated by Vogue Black.

Fashion 4 Development, the global initiative to which Franca Sozzani was made first Goodwill Ambassador in 2011, is a charity that supports a number of initiatives in several African countries.
A portion of the proceeds from the Vogue Italia and yoox.com project will be donated to F4D.
 
STUDIO ONE EIGHTY NINE 
For episode two of the project supporting Fashion 4 Development, Vogue Italia and yoox.com have chosen Studio One Eighty Nine, the brand founded by actress Rosario Dawson and fashion expert Abrima Erwiah. This February, a month dedicated to African-American culture in the USA and Canada, yoox.com presents a Spring/Summer capsule collection that includes two exclusive prints.

"The new prints in the capsule collection were designed in Ghana in partnership with our artisans. We believe in the power of collaborating directly with communities, and this is at the heart of what we do."
Launched in 2013, Studio One Eighty Nine was conceived as a collective enterprise and the brand promotes garments that are handcrafted in Africa, with the aim of promoting African culture and supporting the development and economic independence of communities. The brightly coloured prints that recall African tradition are the true stars of the garments, created for both men and women and which boast versatile and contemporary lines. A blend of local cotton and Italian silk provide the canvas onto which the female communities and Ghanaian artists apply Batik techniques by hand.

The inspiration behind Stella’s Tap-tap bags lies within the magical traditions of Haitian pop culture. Tap-taps, which literally means quick-quick, are lavishly decorated share-taxis often painted with religious names or wildly colored slogans. In the designer’s bags, Haitian culture meets international handcraft with African cotton canvas, Zebu leather and Italian traditional shirt fabric.

“My inspiration
in designing the bag
aims to be a reportage
of different cultures
- Italy, Haiti and Africa.”
