Human trafficking and slavery are common means of economic livelihood in the developing world. Those most vulnerable to such horrendous acts are often women and children. In situations where women and young girls are saved, they are often placed in shelters without any form of sustainable livelihood. As a result, they become vulnerable to a cycle of abuse involving poverty and slavery. There is very little post-crisis care and rehabilitation services offered to victims. Senhoa is working to change all of that.
Senhoa seeks to fill this gap by providing comprehensive rehabilitation services and economic opportunities to empower victims of human trafficking towards a better life. Senhoa Foundation is an independent anti-trafficking non-profit organization.

Elementum is an audacious clothing collection, by the Portuguese architect and fashion designer Daniela Pais, underlined by conceptual innovation and strict simplicity, where elementary tubular minimalistic pieces give origin to versatile and multi functional garments stressing refinement and casual elegance.
The construction of the collection aims to the total use of each cloth item where minimum cuts provide maximum use. By one single piece that can be re-arranged in diversified ways, one can have a dress that becomes a scarf, along with a shirt, jacket, skirt and even a trouser, decreasing significantly the production waste while providing multiple wearing possibilities from a unique apparel component.

Both, of course, because Hamster Jeans from Japan’s Ito Manufacturing feature not one, but two of the cuddly critters painted over the back pockets.The artwork is simple yet effective, strictly 2D but with a shout out to classic Japanese anime cartoons. Painted in orange and white over deep indigo blue denim, the hamsters provide exceptional contrast that’ll get you noticed – even on Tokyo’s crowded streets. Though the twin hamsters positioned diagonally on the back pockets are the most noticeable feature of these jeans, a closer look reveals a wealth of custom touches. T
