Fashionista Speaks Out

"Those of us behind the No Sweat Campaign are spunky, millennial fashionistas who love our wardrobes, but hate where a lot of of our favorite outfits come from: sweatshops. And we're tired of letting fashion and injustice go hand in hand."

Last night (April 24) graduating seniors in the Communication Arts Department presented their senior thesis projects. Jessica Prudhmomme of White Plains, New York, spoke on the No Sweat Campaign, which aims to confront the global sweatshop crisis and inform consumers of their part in this injustice. Check out Jessica's prototype website--it includes press releases, fashion photography, company profiles and a Speak-Up link that provides contact information for company CEO's at Abercrombie & Fitch, Ann Taylor and The Limited. More presentations will continue tomorrow (Saturday, April 25).
