Espero Presents Espero Atelier Saturday March 4, 2022

During the week of fashion shows in Paris, the non-profit association, Espero France has exhibited the talents of the Espero Atelier, a dedicated fashion studio which provides training to people far from employment and allows them to acquire new techniques, professional experience, and sensitivity to the creative nature of the garment and fashion industry.

They have achieved a true fashion collection with upcycled materials and have additionally managed several subcontracts in the industry in Paris.

The collection and the beneficiaries were introduced to press, industry leaders and friends of the association with a live embroidery performance and honey tasting of the Espero honey and fresh pollen collected from their apiculture pathway.

ESPERO is a non-profit organization dedicated to building new pathways to jobs linked to sustainability for people far from employment, including refugees.

Throughout the region of Ile de France, ESPERO beneficiaries receive training in the areas of permaculture, urban beekeeping, and in upcycling in garment creation, with a view to preserve our ecosystem and fight against unnecessary waste. The goal is for every person who works with ESPERO to find long term employment and recognition of the skills acquired through our programs.

ESPERO ATELIER is a casually conceptual clothing label built believing in sustainable design practices, anthropological introspection, and the honor of work.

Ideas like no-season, no-gender and no-greenwash merge in creating an answer for the modern clothing buyer in an overly saturated ecosystem.

All garments are made from long term unemployed individuals. Espero Atelier helps them develop their skills to find stable jobs in the garment industry. Espero Atelier clothing is easy-to wear and practical as a mission, working to forge conceptual ideas with realistic goals.
