FILM & CULTURE NIGHT // DES SIMONES. Clothes, women, ethics.

Des Simones is our project. Of wearing ethical, political and cool clothes. Ethical because it does not
increase the enrichment of immoral industries, its realization does not imply neither the exploitation of human beings nor overproduction or contamination. Political because it represents important things for us. Women that are emblematical for their actions, or underrepresented because of their physical aspect. Cool because we transform unused clothes into attractive garment.  We screen print women faces on second hand clothes. For each piece we chose an adequate color line and we transform its cut.
Besides presenting the project and the clothing collection,  we will talk about the ethical and ecological
problems linked to the textile industry and the consequences of the biased representation of women.

Des Simones is a project by Esther Arribas and Julia Faure.
