For Immediate Release:
Worldwide, December 1, 2015:
Online retailer Wearable Therapy is devoted to offering one-of-a-kind designs meant to help empower their customers to boost their self-esteem, improve their lives, and now speak out about causes that they are passionate about. They have recently launched their Advocate Collection, featuring designs that are meant to bring awareness to topics ranging from domestic violence to depression.
There are many examples of fashion being used for social change in the past, ranging from wristband campaigns for charities to t-shirt slogans working to end the stigma surrounding mental health. Wearable Therapy seeks to go further than simply creating designs for causes that are close to their hearts. Alongside their Advocate Collection is their passion for working with new artists to feature art therapy pieces that centre on true emotions and powerful messages.
Wearable Therapy is a division of the lifestyle company Tokii, which also offers a popular iOS app Personality Profile Quizzes by Tokii. This app includes over 500 quizzes dealing with love, career, personal development, LGBT, teen life and health & beauty. Many of the designs on Wearable Therapy are inspired by these quizzes.
Tokii founder and CEO Karla Stephens-Tolstoy explains, “Being able to express yourself is one of the best things for promoting higher self-esteem, confidence and bringing people together. People want to show who they are and that includes showing what they care about.”
