This isn’t just another clothing brand.
This is kind of an announcement.
We are what we are, with our own beliefs, ideas, and purpose. HIA says “Here I Am” straight away and reminds us that, even in a world as big as this, each one of us has a unique voice that can be manifested by how we present ourselves every single day. It’s much more than putting on clothes we like and expect they make us look good.
It’s a form of expression, a vehicle for our thoughts and views about the future.
Because confidence is the best thing you can wear.
We’re talking mostly about comfort, empowerment, and sustainability. There is a certain amount of inspiration in each one of these dimensions and that’s a key ingredient for a bright new tomorrow. Comfy clothes with strong messages, made with environmentally friendly materials from day one, as a manifest towards present and future. HIA takes a stand, chooses a side, in order to fight for the most noble causes. People, and specially what they have inside, is what matters most.
