Veggie kiosks, time warp photography, news from space and more in our look at the web this week

While many products tout the fact that they are made by marginalized artisans overseas, the harsh truth is that the customer will likely never see or interact with them. For her spring eyewear collection, prominent New Zealand fashion designer Karen Walker worked with the United Nations’ ITC Ethical Fashion Initiative (whose motto is “NOT CHARITY, JUST WORK”) to create a new campaign that acknowledges and spotlights the Kenyan artisans who have benefited from the organization’s initiative. Check out the lookbook images, which features artists, metal casters, beaders and more modeling Karen Walker eyewear.
