The setting for FASHION X ART FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE is an art box depicting many of the current social matters that affect our society. In the Art box, three of our looks are featured, the Dantò, The Andrea, and Maitress Ezili coat. 

There are so many unjustified things happening to innocent people, from the United States reaching all the way to Haiti, my home land. Issues such as gun violence, a woman's right to do as they see fit with their body, the treatment of the Haitian people migrating for a better life in Texas, or a sitting President assassinated in his own bedroom in-front of his wife. It is important that artists are not outside the equation, and that we don’t stand on the sidelines. Artists and designers are part of the story of a response, we cannot stand aside and only let others make the response. At Prajje Oscar, we stand with and for our people, here, in the US and abroad, and back home in Haiti.
