Apolis Activism

Posted on March 12, 2008 Under Fashion

American Apparel may claim to wear its conscience on its ribbed thermal sleeve, but Apolis Activism lives up to its claim of socially responsible fashion. Raan, Shea, and Sten Parton started their designer couture rooted firmly in charitable work. They’ve partnered with organizations like Invisible Children, which helps displaced children of Uganda, and Yuva Lok, a Bangalore, India based charity that uses education to break the poverty cycle. The brothers have also gone on missions down to Uganda, which actually used have a thriving cotton business before the rebel fighting broke out. You say, ‘Fantastic! I love helping people and wearing organic cotton! But, what about the clothes?’ Apolis’ garments are what you’d expect from a high-minded company: cool hoodies, t-shirts, jackets and pants that have an anachronistic charm. So, suck on that Dov Charney.
