MA Fashion Studies Alumni: ‘How These Women Turned Creativity into Real Social Change’ by Refinery29

Congratulations to MA Fashion Studies Alumni, Clarabeth Smith who has just been published in Refinery 29 this week, in an article focusing on her work with the nonprofit Style Her Empowered (S H E). Clarabeth works with S H E to provide new school uniforms; full-tuition scholarships; and year-round training, tutoring, and support to 180 girls in Togo, Africa.  

After her graduation in May 2019, Clarabeth designed a uniform that grows in size with each girl — up to six sizes and one foot in length whilst being completely waste free.
