Shop ethically this Christmas – get your holiday look from socially responsible label Yevu
Sydneysider Anna Robertson heads up socially responsible fashion label Yevu, which operates out of Accra in Ghana, where she employs a team of skillful seamstresses providing fair paying jobs that positively impact women.
Every year, Robertson opens up a pop-up shop in Sydney to sell the latest range of limited edition wrap dresses, playsuits, jumpsuits (very popular ones), high-waisted shorts and menswear.
Yevu’s temporary store is back from December 7 for ten days, where you’ll find distinctive prints, from black and white geometric stripes to a snake print-like pattern in striking orange, pink and white diamonds. It’s not a range for wallflowers – in Sydney these items sell out very quickly.
There’ll be a launch night on Thursday December 6, which is open to all. Ghanaian nine-piece band the Karifi Ensemble and Afro-beat dancers will be there to entertain shoppers, plus Robertson is laying on coconut cocktails and beers to help you make swift, ethically-minded, purchases.
As all the fabric is sourced at the markets in Ghana and Togo, not only will your new twin set be bold, it’ll also be unlike anything else you can buy in Sydney. Also available at the pop-up will be potted plants by Leaf Supply and a limited range of sale items and archival pieces for the Yevu stans out there.
