This June 2021, we are celebrating the 3rd annual Filipino Heritage Month here in Toronto, Ontario.
Throughout this experience of creating Assist Her, it's allowed me to reconnect with the roots of my community and family, which is primarily FILIPNO! A part of me that I didn't always focus on.
We are so excited to team up with Pinay Collection who has designed a collaborative Tee "Walang Limitasyon" (Limitless).
Proceeds from our sale of this shirt will support our Assist Her Fund Bursary aimed at providing financial support to newcomer and immigrant Filipina/xs within Canada.
Pinay Collection is not your average Filipina clothing shop - we cultivate the power of Filipino words and reclaim them. The words used in our designs have been known to diminish and shame Filipina/xs but we think this is what makes our line unique, beautiful, and rich with resistance. Unlike other Filipino clothing lines that use barongs, ternos, or indigenous weaving to show a link to Filipino culture, the Pinay Collection embraces Filipino identity by boldly featuring Tagalog words like ‘Maarte’, ‘lakwatsera’, and ‘Suplada’.
Pinay Collection was born out of the aspiration to amplify and own our Pilipina/x identity in the diaspora. Our commitment is centred around amplifying Filipina/x narratives in ways that are rooted in community purpose and care. Our platforms aim to build support around our shared pain and histories as Pilipina/xs. Our partnerships work to re-distribute space and resources to communities in the diaspora and the homeland.All of these efforts are centred in shared learning and helping mobilize our community towards social impact.
