Fashion beyond face value

Local fashion designer Elizabeth Roney and her Liz Alig clothing line have partnered with Uganda's One Mango Tree to source organic cotton, building on a long-standing tradition of supporting global fair trade. Roney reports that partnerships between tailors and the One Mango Tree projects in the northern region of the conflict-scarred African country "have changed the lives and circumstances for hundreds of people in the region." In addition, the label will continue its partnerships with Mi Esperanza in Honduras and Ghana's Global Mamas. The 2012 Liz Alig Spring Collection launched March 25. Local retailers include IndySwank, Lesley Jane, Mary and Marthas, and Redemption. The full collection can be viewed online at www.lizalig.com.
