What is Fashion for Freedom all about? It’s an open house to invite the community to check out the store if it’s your first visit, try on some fashions and enjoy the refreshments. An event to bring awareness and share with you the vision and the impact we are already making with the girls and women in Kolkata, India. I’ll be sharing stories and pictures, answering all your questions and showing you some products we are making. I have special gift bags for the first 25 ladies purchasing ‘the Freeset scarves.’
I randomly met Ali Rushton on a train in Kolkata, in March ’18. My friend and I were travelling over to visit Freeset. It’s a flourishing free trade, social enterprise to help bring freedom and employment to women from the sex trade. We managed to talk on that crowded, stifling hot train- enough to also exchange contact info. I was incredibly inspired and knew this was no coincidence.
Ali Rushton is from Victoria BC Canada and sells freeset Apparel through her online platform, Kindredapparel
They have achieved what we want to accomplish in a village in India. We make a much stronger impact by collaborating and helping each other, and that’s why the scarves you’ll see at this event will be Freeset scarves. With each purchase you’ll be directly investing into the social enterprise we are developing. We need each other and your partnership is so important for us to continue.
If you’re looking for an opportunity to give back, this may be just what you’re looking for! There will be many opportunities and levels for you to participate. Bring in your fashions to consign and you can choose to donate to this cause.
We will have ongoing presence in this store after this event is over with the Freeset Scarves and the uniquely designed, one of a kind Malina Scarf . Visit- places/India/Jivan Freedom Center… and a line products we can’t wait to show you! Coming Spring 2019. You’re going to Love them!

The staff here are bar none the most friendly and helpful anywhere. I connected with Alex a few years back sharing some ideas and the work I was involved with overseas…the timing wasn’t right…until now.
The team at Rewind and myself look forward to seeing you there!
