"Women and girls should be able to wear whatever they want, anytime and everywhere",- UN Women

 

Women in Belarus are detained and imprisoned by Lukashenka regime simply for wearing red and white - the historic national colours of BelarusThese are just a few of the cases: a Minsk dweller Inna Zaytseva was detained nine times and went through 4 court trials for wearing a white-red-white gown in public,  a Hrodna dweller Lubou Sarlay was arrested in the street of her native town for wearing white and red pants, Kristina Milashevich was “picketing in white-red-white socks”. She got 15 days of imprisonment for that.

 

The main purpose of our project FASHION FOR FREEDOM is to attract international attention to human rights violations in Belarus. We believe that Belarus fight for freedom has nothing to do with politics. We are convinced that what is happening in Belarus touches upon the rights of every citizen in the world. 

 

We urge you to support the fight of Belarusian women for human rights. We want to have the right to choose. To choose colors, clothes, a lifestyle. We want our voices to be heard.

 

The BWF team ask every woman to wear white and red in support of Belarus women who pay dear price for their right to choose the colors and the life they like. 

 

The BWF team call on world-renowned designers and budding designers to dedicate one piece from their current collection or new collection to Belarusian women who face violence and repression for wearing colors of their choice.
