Fashion for a Cause

Los Angeles based accessory designer Della empowers women in Ghana to be financially independent by teaching them how to construct a variety of bags with local, sustainable textiles found in Hohoe, Ghana. Founded by Tina Tangalakis, Della designs offers wallets, clutches, computer cases and their signature hobo bag in brightly colored African prints.

Aside from creating jobs for impoverished women, Della educates them in entrepreneurship and how they can escape poverty in a country where one out of three people live below the poverty line. Socially concious fashion? Love it! Check out Della on ModelWire Network here.
