Emma Watson is an English actress whose most well known role is as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films.
Watson also teamed up with People Tree again for their Autumn/Winter 2010 collection. She visited the Dhaka (Bangladesh's capital) slums and compared it to the quality of living in Swallows (the Fair Trade community supported by People Tree) and found it impressive how the women used Fair Trade clothing to empower themselves and their children in order to escape poverty. Watson noted that, having been given a lot of opportunities in her life, this was one way to give something back. Her third and final involvement with People Tree was for their Spring/Summer 2011 collection, launched to coincide with Fairtrade Fortnight, which starts February 28.
Fashion is a great way to empower people and give them skills; rather than give cash to charity you can help people by buying the clothes they make and supporting things they take pride in. It’s that simple.
