Pikolinos' Maasaï project is a nominee for “best brand for sustainable development” in this year's Global Fashion Awards organized by WGSN. The project is a line of shoes and bags whose sales go toward the Masai people in Kenya. In 2010, a school was built for 400 students in the area thanks to the project, and the next plans are for a residence and hospital. Other companies nominated for this award include Levi Strauss & Company and Naya Shoes (Brown Shoe Company). The winners will be announced at a gala on Oct. 20 in New York.
