Lucia Josephine endeavours to create employment opportunities in developing nations, ensuring they are paid a living wage, can work standard hours, and have the ability to freely communicate their labor rights. In addition, Lucia Josephine provides the skills & experience of working internationally, without the need to leave their home and ultimately their families, which unfortunately many women with young children must sacrifice. That's something we're chuffed about! So feel good, knowing you're buying good.
Working with large manufacturer's is unsuitable for Lucia Josephine, as it is impersonal and makes monitoring ethical production difficult. So we operate completely in house, hiring experienced fashion designers, couturiers, pattern makers, sewers. With some having studied at the top fashion schools in the Philippines & abroad, and worked with prestige fashion designers. Each purchase supports local talent, and up-and-comers, who are on par with the world's fashion capitals. So your garments are in very good hands!
Then please watch the True Cost of Fashion documentary (currently screening on Netflix) and check out Fashion Revolution, which campaigns "Who made my clothes?" after the tragic Bangladesh factory collapse which killed over 1,200 people and injured over 2,500 people, all in the name of the bottom dollar. So come on just do it... even Vogue said so! Or at least watch the trailer below if you're a little busy.
