I’m a southern girl at heart, but when it comes to clothing, fashion and style, New York has my heart. I visited UNIQLO for the first time today and fell in love. When I entered the store, I told myself I did not need any more clothes, especially after seeing the hole that will be my closet this summer in Manhattan. But I stumbled upon all sorts of patterned and colors pants — my absolute weakness, and walked out with two pairs (a similar pair pictured here.)
Not only did I love the vibe of the store — all of the clothes were well organized & the space well-lit — but I felt there was some kind of story I needed to dive into once I got home — something about the brand that made shopping about more than just the clothes.
UNIQLO started as a single store in Japan, but has since spread internationally. They pride themselves on their commitment to social responsibility and developed multiple initiatives such as the UNIQLO Recovery Assistance Project, All-Project Recycling Initiative and Clothes For Smiles. They publish “The Power of Clothing” and distribute it in their stores to highlight their commitment toward making the world a better place through the power of clothing.
