    The Rise Of The Statement Bag

    Sarah Beydoun is bringing a whole new different meaning to statement bags. She makes statements for sure, but not just fashion statements, political and social statements also.

    From being a young sociology student volunteering with ex-prostitutes in a prison for her thesis, Sarah realised that the women in these situations needed to learn new skills in order to change their lives when they leave the prison.

    Sarah’s latest collection was inspired by the women’s march in Washington DC.
    The bags from this particular collection were crafted by a team of female Syrian refugees that were trained in various techniques such as beading, embroidery and stitching by the label itself.

    Each piece features a statement inspired by the feminist movement. This concept is similar to Dior’s (pricey) tees. Sarah’s Bags on the other hand are completely unique and handmade with a different technique and shape “to represent the diversity of women around the world standing up for each other”.

    If this isn’t a statement, I don’t know what it. For those of who are as clued into politics as they are fashion, it is always a beautiful amalgamation when both come together.
