Obakki: Fashion with a Purpose

It is the middle of November, which is the perfect time for Spring! This Thursday is our Christmas Showcase and we are featuring Obakki Spring 2013 collection and believe us when we say it's nothing you have seen before from the Canadian designer.

Change is a definite key factor for Obakki, first off they have downsized their collection. The entire spring collection fits on a rack, but what a fabulous and sophisticated rack it is! Second, Obakki the company is really focusing on their humanitarian work. Obakki truly believes that a single dress can make a difference. The Obakki Foundation is taking over. Obakki designs is the creative arm that makes the products they use to fundraise. Obakki designs absorbs all of the administrative fees, from business cards to travel expenses, so that 100% of all public donations and 100% of net profits generated from Obakki sales can go directly to their humanitarian projects. Whether you buy Obakki product or make a donation to the Foundation, you know your needed right now!

This Holiday Season, when you buy certain Obakki Fall items, 100% of the proceeds go to The Obakki Foundation...includes the stunning Aza Sweater, which is available at Fisher & Company!

Get to know The Obakki Foundation:

The Obakki Foundation isn’t your typical non-profit. To start with, fashion is our main fundraising vehicle. Through creative campaigns and authentic storytelling, we engage and inspire the modern consumer, connecting them to causes in a way that’s meaningful to their own lives. It’s a unique model in the philanthropy world and one that has driven real results. Magical things happen when you combine compassion and creativity. Our efforts are currently focused on clean water and education for developing communities in urgent need. These communities need help now, so projects are chosen for their potential to make an impact quickly, but also sustainably. We are a hands-on organization, building relationships within communities to learn where help is needed most. We plan the projects and raise the funds. We direct, execute and manage the fieldwork.
