Feature: So-Me Designs *GIVEAWAY*

8:00 PM Posted by Erin

**CONTEST CLOSED**
Being fashion conscious and socially conscious do not have to be mutually exclusive. When Somy Ali created her t-shirt line So-Me Designs she thought above all those degrading messages many other clothing companies were printing, such as "Blondes Do It Better" or "Who Needs Brains When You Have These". Deciding to focus on human rights issues was personal to Somy. As a follower of Ghandi, she wanted to take a stand against all intolerance through the aid of fashion.




The first shirt in the So-Me Designs line was "Human Being" with four religious symbols. As a Pakistani born Muslim who came to the US at the age of nine and later lived in India as a teenager, Somy learned that religion has nothing to do with whether a person is good or bad but what bonds us is the fact that we are all human. "It's sad to see the wars over religion and innocent lives lost over religious differences, whereas, we are all one. It really hurts me to see so much hatred for one another so I wanted the "Human Being" shirt to emphasize the fact that we are all Humans and nothing can be a stronger bond than that. It's so simple, yet many have made it so complex and that's what's sad. "




All of So-Me Designs shirts focus on a particular human rights or environmental issue. It's about being a voice for the voiceless, taking a stand for those that seek justice but never receive it. Somy's desire is to start a movement amongst the youth, sending a message that "Fashion Does Not Have to Be Stupid". Being hip doesn't mean you can't take a stand for someone and fight for justice.


It's not all about fashion either, Somy is working through her charity, No More Tears to change the lives of women and children faced with domestic violence issues. Her organization assists with legal counsel, financial assistance, and psychotherapy. They help these women in not only wiping away the tears, but also making sure that there are No More Tears!

Somy has created a beautiful t-shirt line with an inspiring, motivational message. This beautiful woman has put a name and face to many important causes and she's also being generous enough to share her message with one of my readers. One very blessed reader will receive So-Me Designs Designs Human Being shirt. Thanks so much Somy and please keep up your wonderful work!
