"Equal Hands" Lifestyle Brand Launches
The ecologically sustainable and socially responsible lifestyle brand established by Monica Phromsavanh Hand offers an up-cycle line of clothing as well as artisanal accessories.
NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / October 27, 2020 / Ecologically sustainable and socially responsible lifestyle brand Equal Hands launched its "Explorer Collection" on the CFDA's New York Fashion Week platform during Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week on Sept. 15. The show can still be seen online.

Equal Hands was established by self-made and passionate serial entrepreneur Monica Phromsavanh Hand as a response to the call to combat fast fashion through sustainable, upcycling, and socially responsible production. The looks featured in the Explorer Collection use significantly fewer (in some cases, no) raw materials, reducing the harmful impacts of fashion products like water usage, chemical treatments, and carbon emissions.
"This world, at times, seems too big for us," says Hand. "Massive amounts of energy going in the wrong directions. That inertia can seem overwhelming for one person. But one person, joining others, can have an impact, particularly when the impulse is pure and inspired by a thing of beauty. Our purchase decisions can change the planet's fate and people's lives for the better."
The line also answers the call to find a resolution to the inner conflict consumers feel between pursuing a sustainable lifestyle through purchasing decisions and an inability to express oneself through fashionable, striking, statement pieces.
In a year during which the global fashion industry is experiencing unprecedented challenges, the CFDA developed a multimedia industry resource to support designers and further its mission of strengthening the impact of American fashion in the global economy.
