To bring awareness to the fact that jaguars might soon become critically threatened with extinction, Brazilian NGO @amparanimal has launched Life Print - the first ever certified animal print that gives back profits it makes to preserve the jaguars. 🐆 
Seven unique patterns were developed based on the mapping of actual jaguars protected by the AMPARA Animal. From them, brands can create their own prints and develop their own collections.

@ciamaritimabeachwear, Brazil’s biggest beachwear brand, was the first to embrace the cause, producing an exclusive collection using the certified jaguar print. All brands around the globe are encouraged to visit Life Print's website and use the AMPARA Life Print for their upcoming collections.

We’d love to see more companies embracing this project!

Earlier this year, sneaker marketplace @stadiumgoods partnered with premium art auction house @sothebys for “The Ultimate Sneaker Collection Auction”. 👟 ✨

Stadium Goods curated a selection of 100 of the most prized footwear from their famed Trophy Case - the most exclusive and coveted sneakers ever produced by Nike, Air Jordan, Adidas, Yeezy and more, spanning over 15 years of the most sought-after, limited-edition drops in sneaker history. 😬

Are sneakers luxury? Well.. consider this: these 1972 Nike "Moon Shoe" trainers were sold at Sotheby’s for a price $437,500 (£350,395) to Canadian collector and businessman Miles Nadal - breaking the record for the most expensive trainers (sneakers) sold at auction. 😱 "I view sneakers as much more than shoes, I think of them as art. They're a perfect showcase of history - and what Miles Nadal has purchased is indeed a historic artifact. It represents the root of the Nike company, and its longstanding culture,” said Jordy Geller, who currently holds the Guinness World Records title for the largest collection of sneakers, and where this anime pair came from. 👏🏻 Are sneakers art? We’d love to hear your thoughts!

Today marks the 50th anniversary of the first humans landing on the Moon on July 20, 1969  as part of NASA's Apollo 11 lunar mission. 🌓🚀✨ During the Apollo program of the 1960s and '70s, NASA sent nine missions to the Moon. Six of them landed astronauts safely on the surface, the only times humans have visited another world. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 And yet, 50 years later, NASA cancelled its first all-female spacewalk, citing lack of spacesuit in right size! 😤😡 Fashion (clothing!), and the lack thereof, should never be a reason to limit women’s (or anyone’s) ability and potential. Before we land on Mars next, let’s make sure we have ALL the equipment (and in all sizes) here on Earth 🌎
It’s your final day to enter our competition!! 😱 Just follow us & like this image to be in with a chance of winning a ticket to the thought-provoking #Fashiontech conference, taking place on 4th of September in the big Apple 🍏 Topics include new textiles, inclusivity in fashion, wearable tech and much more ✨
