“It is all fair trade and organic,” says Daniela Wawrzyniak of fashion label “Shipsheip”. Together with designer Joana Ganser she has founded and created a fashion label with holistic commitment.
“We went to India earlier this year to travel from station to station of the whole value chain,” Wawrzyniak says.
A value chain with a long, but trackable and trasparent, way from organic cotton, planted in Orissa, to the finished product refined in Germany. Spinning, knitting and colouring takes place in Indian town Tamil Nadu.
It is comparable to a 800-meters race, says dancer Corinna Götz of Cologne club TSC Mondial. Every round of dancing, whether it is a Quickstep or a Bossa Nova, last for at least 1 minute and 30 seconds. Then the music stops, the official makes his notes for the final result.
And although dancing is quite challenging and exhausting, even older women and men can join, as Götz explains. There are people up to the age of 75 who are dancing. And even more: Some surveys say that frequent dancing can prevent Alzheimer disease or dementia, says Corinna Götz.
