About Ferway Designs and our vision
Fair is the way
FerWay Designs provides ethical fashion brands an online platform. These brands make fashion accessories that are designed and handcrafted under fair working conditions. In addition, FerWay Designs offers freelance services in fashion design, production and styling.
Fernando (The Hague, 1988) is the founder behind FerWay Designs. His passion for ethical fashion erupted after watching the Bitter Seeds documentary on GMO cottonseeds. This led to pursue his career in an impactful way, combining his communication background with a master’s in social entrepreneurship and a fashion design degree. He currently teaches at the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences and on occasions works as a creative consultant.
FerWay Designs works together with high quality fashion brands. These brands create fashion accessories with a strong focus on detail and quality finishes. What’s more, our brands are handmade, making them limited in production. For instance, some designs are unique pieces making them truly one-of-a-kind!
Our focus is showing the world that fashion and ethic’s can go hand-in-hand. By working with these fair brands we hope to prove this. Moreover, Ferway Designs not only empowers local artisans but also local design talent. This is quite uncommon considering the world nowadays designs in the Global North and produces in the Global South.
