Fashion designer Abi Ferrin strives not only to make women LOOK good but to make women FEEL good as well.
She aims to empower women-by wearing her sleek, sexy designs you are also giving back to to the global community through her Freedom Project.
The Freedom Project is Ferrin’s charitable foundation that aims to eradicate poverty and rescue women out of human trafficking by providing alternatives to abusive employment.
Each Abi Ferrin design is enhanced with a special handcrafted button, toggle or other embellishment, hand-made by the women of the Freedom Project which serves as a symbol of freedom and empowerment.
A long-time supporter of women’s rights, Abi decided to incorporate a humanitarian commitment into the Abi Ferrin Inc. business model by commissioning disenfranchised women from around the world to contribute to every piece sold from the Abi Ferrin collection, helping to restore their dignity and give them an income. Abi Ferrin’s design collaboration began with the Guardian Village, a non-profit organization in an impoverished region of Nepal and has since expanded to working with Sak Saum in Cambodia. Both organizations counsel, train, and shelter women rescued from the sex trade and other abusive employment situations.
Made a household name with her 5-way dress (yes one stunning dress you can wear 5 ways!) she recently launched her handbag collection Cambodia Clutch.
Each Cambodia clutch is handcrafted by young Cambodian women rescued from the sex trade and other forms of abusive employment in either Nepal or Cambodia.
