OTHERS partners with over 700 producers in Bangladesh – men and women who show resilience and skill to provide for themselves and their families. Producers come from a variety of backgrounds but are all recruited through The Salvation Army's local programs.
OTHERS: "This year, we're proud to launch a unique collection of scarves made by these artisans in Bangladesh and designed by NY-based Fashion Illustrator and Designer Lily Qian. Each scarf includes elements of hand-loom, hand-embroidery and/or hand-painting to create a unique fashion accessory that comes with a story of transformation. Every Others artisan is paid a fair wage for their work. This means that food is on the table, children are in school and people are able to plan for their future. This scarf collection will engage around 200 artisans in meaningful, dignified work."
B&H Photo Video – Electronics and Camera Store recently launched an exciting new initiative dedicated to influential women working in photography and film. Lily Qian illustrated the invitation for this initiative which is titled "Women of Influence".
Lily Qian was hired by ELIZABET ARDEN to illustrate the new fragrance "My Fifth Avenue" for the launch in New York and designed an invitation illustration for the Baccarat Hotel.
Finally: Lily Qian works in continuous collaboration with VICTORIA'S SECRET on Textile Patterns by drawing prints and graphics.
