McCartney says she values the fact that you need people to make fashion. “The empowerment of the women working for us has to be one of the most meaningful for me,” she says, before echoing the organization’s cri de coeur. “[It’s] not charity, just work.”

Other designers who maintain active relationships with the Ethical Fashion Initiative include Vivienne Westwood and Karen Walker.
