Glocal Connection: making the traditional art of fashion sustainable

Written by on November 16, 2012 in Fashion, Women - No comments

 

New York based organization Glocal Connection is one of those initiatives that can really make a difference. They serve as a business and knowledge platform to empower women in third-world countries by helping them with the production of luxury products made with traditional art forms.  Glocal Connection helps to design innovative supply chain solutions for each business unit, which enables them to offer competitive prices without sacrificing sustainability.

Glocal Connection was founded by Yenifer Lam and Vicky Cohen, with more than 20 years of combined experience in global sourcing. Having developed collections from concept to delivery, the founders saw the void in resources available to communities with unique artisanal skills and products to compete in global markets. They provide business expertise and coaching by bringing organizational skills and industry knowledge.

Glocal Connection is tailored to support economic development and bring awareness to the history behind the products. They connect industry leaders to develop a network that helps all companies involved gain competitive advantage. For more information, watch these video’s.
