'Fashion Shouldn't Be Something That Destroys': Rosario Dawson

Rosario Dawson and Abrima Erwiah are the co-founders of the fashion lifestyle brand and social enterprise Studio One Eighty Nine. Made in Africa, and producing African and African-inspired content and clothing, the brand supports artisanal communities by using traditional techniques such as hand-batik and kente weaving. It focuses on empowerment, creating jobs and supporting education and skills training, and recently won the prestigious CFDA Lexus Fashion Initiative for Sustainability. 

We caught up with Rosario and Abrima at Art Basel Miami Beach to find out why they’ve joined #TOGETHERBAND to support Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production.
