We caught up with Nadiah and asked her what PEACE FITS means to her, you can read her response below.
PF: What does PEACE FITS represent or mean to you?
Nadiah: "PEACE FITS is comfort with a whole lot of personality! Cutting edge fashion that represents for the streets and culture. When I am peace fitted, I feel like it truly reflects my identity - wild yet spiritually grounded and loving, accepting and at peace with all sides of myself. On a broader scale especially at this time where the world is facing so much suffering on environmental, political and social levels, this is what "PEACE FITS" means to me. Every living being is a piece that fits somewhere in the worlds complex puzzle. The day we come to respect, accept and appreciate every piece regardless of species, colour, race, class, age, religion, weight, disabilities, gender, sexual orientation and culture, we will achieve true peace."
