Dialog is a people-oriented fashion brand working with small businesses and communities in Asia to produce a recycled fourfold trim which stems from the lost craft of recycling cloth into household items. The Dialog fair trade network, which makes the trim, spans charitable communities, such as community development projects and drug rehabilitation centres in Hong Kong, Vietnam, China, Malaysia and Indonesia. Various fabrics are interwoven to create the explosion of texture and patterns that is the particular look of Dialog: glamorous, bohemian and fun. Started by Cassandra Postema and Dong Shing-chiu, who met while studying at London's Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design, Dialog donates a portion of its profits to communities for training and welfare. Dialog evolved from a fund-raising initiative: a line of T-shirts for the 2004 tsunami that is still going strong today. 'Hopetees' are limited-edition T-shirts sold to benefit nine charity projects, the latest being for victims of the Sichuan earthquake in mainland China.
