Inspired by true human trafficking stories, every scarf in this designer collection speaks of the plight of trafficking survivors in Singapore and their remarkable resilience in overcoming their adversities. Part of an awareness project and in collaboration with 5 leading fashion designers and artists in Singapore, the “Be A Voice for the Silenced” campaign seeks to raise public awareness and mobilise community action; each scarf design carries a message of hope that speaks to victims in their native language.
TEARS is inspired by Priya’s experience, who came to Singapore after being offered a job to work as a dancer. Tricked and threatened into sex work, 14-year-old Priya was later rescued by the police. She bravely faced her captors in court and through her time with HAGAR, learnt to speak English, honed several vocational skills and saved up a sum of money working in Singapore.
With less than 100 pieces left, pick a scarf for a perfect gift, and "Be A Voice for the Silenced", lending them courage to seek help from their exploitative situation. You could be a lifeline for a trafficking victim entrapped in exploitation.
