Designer Karen Walker has created a new campaign that involves the Kenyan Artisans who make her stylish eyewear. The 2014 Summer collection is called Visible:
“Karen Walker Visible is a new campaign that aims to highlight, celebrate and acknowledge. This season we’re working with the United Nations’ ITC Ethical Fashion Initiative to create work in community groups of micro-artisans located in the urban and rural areas of Kenya.”

She also used the people who make the sunglasses as her models for her look book which gives it a very cool, eclectic and afrocentric sort of look.
The only aspect I don’t understand about the look book is why all the landscape photography looks so dreary. It seems like a little bit of an oxymoron. Any way, I love the collection. It’s very quirky and a lot of fun. You are sure to stand out in a crowd!
