The Fashionable Is Political: Free People's Rebellion

Written By: MIM!—Incorporating an African aesthetic into your everyday look is all the more easy with Free People's Rebellion. At the helm of Free People's Rebellion is American-Liberian designer Sarah Williams who creates modern handmade accessories, including earrings, necklaces, bows ... even shoe laces, using vibrant African fabrics. Sarah not only makes a point to hand-make her accessories entirely with fabrics manufactured in Africa, she also donates part of the proceeds of each sale to the Children’s Comforting Yard, a charitable organization that provides food, care, and education to Liberian children. The designer who is all about breaking the mold proclaims as her mission statement: "We the FREE people on this earth refuse to be brainwashed by those namebrands that steal OUR style and sell it back to us for their own personal gain. It's time to REBEL against selfish consumerism and make a difference with our purchasing power. Who says you can't look fly while simultaneously saving the world. Welcome to FREE PEOPLE'S REBELLION."
