Not Just A Label -Condé Nast International, 2018
In case you don't know, I am part of an amazing community, NJAL (Not Just A Label)and their main goal is to "discover and support pioneers in contemporary fashion".
I really admire the founder's vision (Stefan Siegel)to revolutionize the fashion world!!!
"Since 2008 the NJAL platform helps designers to gain exposure in the fashion industry[...] by reflecting the modern face of fashion and supporting thriving artists outside of the major fashion capitals.
NJAL gives designers a platform where they can connect with a global audience and showcase their designs from anywhere in the world. [...]
NJAL encourages designers to produce fashion that is sustainable and supports local communities and artisanal craftsmanship. NJAL has pioneered a revolutionary approach to the fashion industry, outside of politics and the tired existing systems that are detrimental to the growth and integrity of its designers.
[...]NJAL is proud to pioneer a website development model that promotes collaboration, transparency and shared innovation and supports the idea that innovation is best done in an open way."
