PROJECT WOMENS, the ultimate destination for the best emerging and established women’s contemporary collections, denim and accessories, and Mimi El-Ashiry, influential fashion model, dancer and content creator, collaborate to create PROJECT WOMENS x Conscious Fashion Campaign lookbook for retailers to discover conscious fashion brands and support labels who are working to end poverty, protect the planet and practice sustainability.

Mimi’s vision for the first ever PROJECT WOMENS lookbook was a collaboration of the green and glowing grandeur of the Bryon Hinterland; beautifully contrasted looks standing out among nature’s splendor.

“I’m very passionate about raising awareness around the damage that we have been doing to our environment, and supporting brands who are making positive choices towards solutions. I’m excited to have been able to feature several of these brands in the PROJECT WOMENS lookbook, shot in my wild backyard; the Byron Hinterland.” shares Mimi El-Ashiry.
