“ALAMA | The first ever fashion campaign with Maasai women artisans from Tanzania “
ALAMA is a culture-to-wear label created by a group of women artisans, who promote the legacy of the Maasai tribe of Northern Tanzania through hand-crafted bead jewelry. Our meaningful jewelry is designed for anyone who wishes to support and empower the Maasai women of Tanzania, their culture and craftsmanship. In order to promote Maasai craftsmanship on an international level, we'd like to travel to Tanzania to portrait and film each and every Maasai woman artisan who designs jewelry for ALAMA. The Maasai women artisans who work with us have already approved this project and are eager to make it happen! All benefits from the exhibition sales will be donated to the NGO Africa Amini Alama, and more specifically, to the PAMOJA SECONDARY SCHOOL, an educational project supported by the NGO and initiated by the Maasai themselves.The aim of this campaign is to give a voice to all the women artisans who make our jewelry, as they might otherwise not be heard and respected by the international audience as they should be.

“FLIRT WITH ME” NBC News - In Japan, a hostess is a young woman who entertains men at bars or clubs. Customers pay large sums of money to these women for the pleasure of their company, for flirting, but not sex. There are at least 70,000 such establishments in Japan, according to Japan’s National Police Agency. Once frowned upon along with sex work, the job of a hostess has been gaining popularity among young women: Despite the Equal Opportunity Law of 1986, Japanese women’s employment opportunities are often limited to low-paying, dead-end jobs or temp positions.
