The Rags Tribe

The Rags Tribe is more than just a brand, its mission is empowering women from sex trafficking. It presented a vaporous, warm-walled collection, made exclusively from vintage, unique materials, gathered by the creator behind the brand in rural India. Dawn Schuster, the creator behind this brand, started this experience after seeing a post on Instagram with a group of women saved from the Mumbai human trafficking. In a few weeks, Dawn had already opened her first workshop in India, with all the employees of the workshop being women who had gone through this calvary. Each piece created by Rags Tribe is unique and talks about courageous women and their power to overcome any difficulty.

Day 3

Pat Equilux

The last day of fashion shows began in the basement of the „Ion Besoiu” Cultural Center, a place that keeps the time and the mystery, which emphasised with the Pat Equilux brand collection. VORÁGINE, the tornado of freedom, referring to the word itself, speaks about that overwhelming emotion that you feel having achieved such freedom. It is so disproportionate and great that has no exact explanation; and as a second reference to the word, we also allude to the tornado that invades us and envelops us by having in ourselves that which we have always sought and needed, FREEDOM.
