Over the last year we have seen an explosion of new fashion brands trying to integrate fashion with a social or environmental purpose. The scale of these programs can often be limiting and may be tangential to the product. However, by taking a fresh look at supply chains and leveraging new and unique partnerships, some brands are making a major impact in the lives of those in developing countries, while meeting the high standards set by consumers.

This week, Nordstrom launched the She Makes It Collection in collaboration with nonprofit partner Piece & Co. and a group of eight major fashion brands. The collection, which sourced materials from female artisans in developing countries, features products from Alice + Olivia, Current/Elliott, DVF, Joie, Rebecca Minkoff, Theory, The Honest Company and Tory Burch. The program looks to help raise women out of poverty by providing sustainable employment through artisan work.
