"Don’t judge a book by its cover!" -- but we may be hardwired to make quick assumptions about others that cross our sightlines. And these hasty judgments can lead to grave misinterpretations if we aren’t willing to make efforts to challenge our old bias.
Kelly Okamura attends Design Forward, a new sustainable fashion competition and finds she wants more than a passing glance from a conscious runway show. Yet it is apparent why designer Annie Thompson was honoured with the Vanguard award that evening.

Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
