Style With Substance

DESIGNING WOMEN:  We here at Want This have been eagerly awaiting the launch of Proxy Apparel, a new collection of “fashion-forward, socially responsible” clothing and accessories.  Now up and running, this sustainable, sweatshop-free online boutique is open for business with a debut line of scarves, jewelry, tees and more, created by woman-owned cooperatives in developing countries.  There’s a lot of meaning behind Proxy’s pretty things, and the Light-as-a-Feather Belt ($40) is a beautiful case-in-point.  Handcrafted by an independent designer in Buenos Aires, it’s equally at home worn as a necklace or headband.  And however you style it, this feel-good purchase supports art and design programs in South America through its profits.  GET IT:  To learn more about Proxy and shop the collection, visit
