IMPACT 0007: MAKING FASHION INCLUSIVE
Farkhanda, 24, is the founder of WearBums, a fashion brand with sizes ranging from XXXS to XXXL. Beyond raising awareness on issues like body inclusivity, she also conducts fundraising campaigns to help those in need, and recently raised $10,000 in 24 hours to help Indonesians who struggled during a flood.
Farkhanda also lends a listening ear to women who are in troubling situations, and provides words of support and encouragement to assure them that their concerns are being heard.
“IT’S AN EYE OPENER FOR A LOT OF WOMEN AND A LOT OF THEM CAME FORWARD AND FELT SO FREE BECAUSE THEY FINALLY HAD SOMEONE TO TALK TO.”
“EVEN IF I CAN MAKE THE WORLD BETTER BY ONE PER CENT, OR CHANGE ONE GIRL’S LIFE, IT’S BETTER THAN NOT DOING ANYTHING.”
