Alice and the struggle against human trafficking find a space at the India Fashion Week

Last week, the Wills India Fashion Week took place in Delhi, and some of the issues that are so dear to Friends of Humanity managed to get the spotlight.

12 among India's top designers presented a creation to support the photographer Subi Samuel and the NGO You Can Free Us who have been fighting for several years against human trafficking. Samuel has recently worked with a young woman rescued from traffickers, and portrayed her wearing the creations of the 12 designers. This photo exhibition is called Ashes from Beauty and it is inspired by Alice in Wonderland, depicting a young girl gradually getting acquainted with a world which initially scares her.

We have been touched to see how the same reference which inspires the work of our partner Valentino Giacomin and his Alice Project with three schools in different regions of India, is also used to tackle the issue of human trafficking, on which Friends of Humanity and our President Graziella Zanoletti have been involved for a long time.
