Elegantees

Elegantees is a company created by a woman with a vision, to make wearable, trendy, affordable clothing that is also modest; and a mission to help women who have been rescued from sex trafficking, and joining in the fight to end it.

They work with the Nepali Rescue Project and Restore NYC, creating fair trade sewing jobs for these women who are trying to get their lives back.

Elegantees is also working hard to raise awareness of this issue. It's easy to think of sex trafficking as being a problem in a third world country which you are far removed from, but the reality is that it is an international problem and the U.S. is the second highest destination for trafficked women.

I hope you will visit and support Elegantees, and find out what you can do to help fight sex trafficking.

  2. Oh how cute is that top? I love the cowl-like neck. Pretty yellow drapery~ oh la la.

    This is really awesome that a company contacted you about this. Sex trafficking does happen around us, which is so hard to believe, but so unfortunately true. I didn't know it was second highest in the US, though. That kind of just makes me angry more than anything. I digress.

    Also, pasta 8 times a week sounds awesome. I can still eat brown rice pasta!! If I pretend, it almost tastes good.

  18. A gorgeous top behind an amazing cause. It's so sad to know the US is the second highest place for sex trafficking- people, including myself, can be totally oblivious to things happening around them! Thanks for posting this
