About Corina Hazlett Design
I am an artist and designer who has collaborated with an E-commerce company called Vida to produce beautiful, original and exciting garments in an ethical way. From each product sold a percentage helps to up-skill factory workers in literacy programs. In 2016 Vida also started a new Women's Department in their Pakistan Factory and launched a Women's Human Rights Empowerment program in Turkey. Watch the short video in my links column to hear the rich interconnected story of VIDA.
