RVDK Ronald van der Kemp. FW 22/23 Couture collection.

RVDK Ronald van der Kemp. FW 22/23 Couture collection. Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week.

RVDK Ronald van der Kemp is the worlds first sustainable couture label.

Founded in August 2014, RVDK shuns the fashion systems wasteful ways, proposing wardrobes consisting of limited-edition statement pieces, that are seasonless and timeless clothes as an expression of a womens personality underlining her strength and character. 

Each style is ethically made with high-end existing materials and leftovers, and crafted by hand by small ateliers and artisans in his native Holland. 

Ronald van der Kemp worked for over 25 years as designer and creative director for high-end international luxury brands such as Bill Blass, Celine/Michael Kors, Guy Laroche and Barneys before launching a label under his own name.

RVDK is on a mission to show the world that ethical fashion can be glamorous and exciting, injecting high fashion with a feeling of nostalgia and a longing for the heydays of haute couture. 

RVDK believes that a form of art can change behaviour which leads to a bigger change in the industry. The world is full of beautiful things we can't see anymore. Because we are to busy to considerate them or too rookie to appreciate them. We are fashion alchemists: we capture unused beautiful fragments and turn them into unique work of art. For the sake of beauty. For the sake of our planet.

Digitunity Report Identifies Need for Computers to Address Rural America’s Digital Divide

A new report examines the technology gap in rural areas and identifies ways communities can spur computer donations.

NORTH CONWAY, N.H. - December 5, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Rural areas in the U.S. struggle to provide residents with broadband internet access and the computers needed to maximize the benefits of online educational and economic resources. Digitunity, a non-profit organization committed to ending the digital divide, has released a commissioned report on the potential causes and solutions to the rural digital divide. 

"We know the digital divide has few boundaries," said Scot Henley, executive director of Digitunity. "It exists in large coastal cities and small towns in America's heartland. It affects people across demographics. With this report, we now know more about why that divide exists and how communities can resolve it."

Areas with substantial internet access and usage typically have higher levels of economic and community development in comparison to those with lower levels of use. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, passed in late 2021, dedicated an unprecedented amount of federal funding toward increasing broadband availability and adoption in less connected areas.

Digitunity's report, written by Oklahoma State University professor Brian E. Whitacre, discusses the direct correlation between internet access and rural economic development. It also looks in depth at the issue of device ownership, focusing on nationwide access and usage of large-screen devices recognized as superior to smartphones in the digital equity space. 

The three major segments of the report, titled "Status Quo," "Supply," and "Support," cover the socio-demographics impacted, as well as the supply chain processes and support networks working to resolve the digital divide rural communities face. The report's findings align with Digitunity's mission and focus on partnership networks. 

"Since its inception, Digitunity has operated on the belief that community-based organizations are essential to ending the digital divide," Henley said. "This report clearly defines the problems facing rural communities and how they can work with organizations like Digitunity to foster the solutions to those problems."
