‘One Love’: How Fashion Weaves Ethnicities Together

by Sonam Naidu

The campaign ‘One Love’ captivates the beautiful integration of five different ethnicities unifying to celebrate authenticity, diversity, and refined style exclusivity. It is a celebration of women universally. A reminder that style is limitless.

Women of every shape, size and most significantly, cultural background, can too incorporate swanky yet a sophisticated fun spin on contemporary fashion—whenever and however they please to do so. The key is to push beyond your limits. Experiment, conquer, and embrace your individuality, and respect those who aren’t afraid to embrace their self-being.

It is a crucial message to be shared amongst our destructive, hate pervaded and discriminatory world to simply extend and multiply that much-needed dose of love through our sisters near and far.

It is a campaign that is surely synonymous with the mastermind sisters behind House Farola, which fuses facets of their distinct personalities and lifestyles into threads that weave straight from the heart. Through bold prints, fun colors, courageous pairings and of course a damn right RAW morale, House Farola transcends the commercial acceptance of trends, celebrity style influencers and the power of materialistic goods. Style defines your personal expression. Fashion is love, weaving us together in a hub as one. One Love.
