Fair Indigo, the fashion industry’s first mainstream fair trade apparel brand will unveil its first retail store at Hilldale, November 1. It will be located next to the recently opened Anada Salon and Spa in a new retail building across the street from the south end of Hilldale, where Sundance 608 is under construction.
Hilldale shoppers will be able to purchase fashionable clothing with a conscience at the label’s inaugural flagship 1600 square-foot boutique. Fair Indigo, which offers everything from luxurious cashmere and essential tees to leather handbags and jewelry, pays fair wages to the people who cut every pattern and sew every seam of its collection. The new “Style with a Conscience” label made its national debut this fall with a catalog and website. Phone is 661-7662 or visit www.fairindigo.com
