The Blue Heart Campaign

The Blue Heart Campaign is an awareness raising initiative to fight human trafficking and its impact on society. The Blue Heart represents the sadness of those who are trafficked while reminding us of the cold-heartedness of those who buy and sell fellow human beings. The use of the blue UN colour also demonstrates the commitment of the United Nations to combating this crime against human dignity.

Why this artwork?

Anna’s blue sash is inspired by the amazing work done by the Blue Heart Campaign. The blue of the blue heart campaign is used to colour the sash, and in placing the blue sash around Anna’s waist,  it becomes symbolic of being ensnared by trafficking. In Timeline 67 Scene 1 Anna has just been bought by Raoul, but her rescue is already being planned. Because of the Blue Heart Campaign, the colour blue has also become symbolic of those who are moved to secure the freedom of and support victims of trafficking.

Fashion for a Purpose

My first upcycled collection, Parade of Giants, was created from a pile of old and unwanted fabrics and socks I was reluctant to send off to landfill.

There are so many people in our societies who feel unwanted. There have been ignored, overlooked, shunned, abused, marginalised and dumped because they don’t ‘fit’ in our cultures and lives.

I believe passionately that every life is precious. That every person has been created with qualities and a unique purpose that only they can fulfil.

And that is why 50% of our profits go to charities that restore the lives of those who would otherwise be written off by our society and to empower them to live their lives to the full and be who they were created to be.

Everyone is a hero in the life they have to deal with.

This is your life and your story and you are its hero.

You may be a hero because of the awful situations you have to deal with, or you may be a hero because you are helping someone else out in an awful situation. Most of us get to do both.
