The first collaboration came about in 2010, following Miller's travels to Rwanda. She saw first-hand the way that Indego Africa empowers its artisans. The project trains local craftspeople and helps them connect with global buyers who will pay them fair wages for their work. Money raised from the sale of the items funds Indego Africa's education programs which teach the African women business, computer, and literacy skills.
The 2010 range only featured textile-woven bangles, so I'm thrilled to see the designer add a few more summery apparel items this time around. Women living in Rwandan towns affected by the genocide in 1994 have crafted the new selection of wrap skirts and summery shorts.
The brightly patterned apparel items would really pop against the white sand of your local beach, and hopefully they'll prove to be great conversation starters. After all, the more people that know about this inspiring collaboration, the more effective the partnership will be!
You'll find the entire Nicole Miller Indego Africa collection available online at the Nicole Miller website. The bracelets cost $25 and the shorts and wrap skirts will set you back $65 a piece.
