RE VIDEO - TRIGGER WARNING. SHOWS DEAD VICTIMS OF RANA PLAZA
The video above was done in 2013 by me, to any copyright issues - I do not own the right and this is for educational purposes - and know Lovedesh is not for profit.
Yasmin C here, Founder and CEO.
I need urgent help. To rescue 10+ years of work.
Here is my personal video - please watch?
Lovedesh needs a business guarantor.
Lovedesh needs urgent funding.
Good news I plan to raise the bulk of the stretch goal money from those who destroyed, damaged and derailed Lovedesh.
I have been made homeless, hit, betrayed and cheated by so many.
All this is in my video coming soon and in the links below on the Lovedesh Website
Who are they?
Names of those who issued me with legal threats OR damaged the work we did.
The famous and rich in fashion world
Suzy Cameron of Red Carpet Green Dress, Laudes Foundation, Fairwear Foundation, Ayesha Barenblat of Remake Our World, Fashion Revolution, Safia Minney Founder of People Tree, Extinction Rebellion, Stella McCartney (the company - not the individual), Clean Clothes Campaign.
Rich Profit Companies
Great British Bake Off's Love Productions, Barclays Bank, 02, Apple, Vodafone.
The not for profit, politicians.
Metropolitan Police, London Fashion Week, Federal Party of The Liberal Democrats, members of UK Labour Party (Nick Thomas-Symonds, Shadow Home Secretary), Mayor Of London's TFL, British High Commission For Bangladesh Robert Chatterton Dickson, As well as Prospect Trade Union and many many more. Unethical, greedy or simply betrayed Lovedesh and.or me.
My blood family - Ali Nagor Choudhury Family
As well as my Ali Nagor, Bangladesh Choudhury family - Nazmin Choudhury, her husband Enamul Haque Choudhury, Naz Choudhury (and his wife Rima Rouf), Jasmin Choudhury, Nazrin Choudhury.
All of whom destroyed my charity Amcariza Foundation and Lovedesh projects in 2015. And refuse to hand over land left for me by late father out in Bangladesh, Which could have helped starving villagers - many of whom Nazmin, me eldest sister - a British solicitor - has bullied and threatened to beat up. And lied, cheated and stolen as well as attempted to defraud me of my rightful inheritance shares - after I helped build family business up. And when I reported it to SRA - they took no action apart from sending her a letter saying "don't do it again".
So many of my male cousins who turned a blind eye and were complicit as I cried and begged for help - such as Faisal Ahmed Chowdhury (and his wife Rowshina Chouwdhury who stayed silent), his brothers Faisal and Nasim - all with UK passports - helped by my late father.
Not to mention my disgusting elder male first cousin who sexually assaulted me in September 2019 - and whom I am hoping will go to jail. Despite telling them it was not ok to do this - they did it.
It is disgusting, Shocking. What that all did - separately but combined.
And now me and the Lovedesh Rana Plaza Victims are fighting back.
Here is the message they did for me in Xmas 2020.
The first £11,136 is for a team to get us started.To help me raise the rest of the money. And get ready for London Fashion Week.
1. I plan to open the world's first Lovedesh store at a prestigious address London - a new luxury brand. To be launched at London Fashion Week. On 16 September 2021.
And this will be attended and organised with garment workers and victims of Rana Plaza. Some are also coming to get medically treated. And artisans from Global South and nations in Africa.
Imagine Gucci or Chanel crossed with Oxfam. That's what Lovedesh does. Or remember Robin Hood - he took from the rich to give to the poor.
The difference with Lovedesh? We are the world's first NOT FOR PROFIT luxury brand - supported and endorsed by garment workers.
EVERY PENNY GOES BACK INTO THE BUSINESS. All staff are paid same wages in first year.
We will fly in weavers, artisans and garment workers. Victims of Rana Plaza.
I and Lovedesh have been left repeatedly broke, harassed and hurt - by the damage done to me and the people I have been working with. From my own family, trolls, large organisations and fashion campaigners ripping off the public. And using garment workers trauma to raise money.
Also I get trolled - so much. Sexually harassed. See evidence below.
- The Hall of Trolls.
This includes my health and the destruction of so many countless projects - that I, a single mother created to help others. And many more Bangladeshi folks who have either died, in crisis and left starving because greedy individuals and organisations trampled over me and my work.
But before I get you too down - look at this. The people who do help.
- Hall of Angels
Who am I?
Yasmin. I have Bangladeshi heritage. Am award winning. Ex City - and a single mother. who got sick at the way fashion charities and campaigners have become so corrupt and erased the very people they claim to work with.
I am part of a British mother and daughter design duo. We have been trying to launch Lovedesh, an ethical fashion brand that is on a mission to #POP (Protect Our Planet) to help us all #BeKind. And every time I try - I am trampled over.
And have been slowly changing the world.
Starting with Fashion. But it all has gone horribly wrong. Ever since my daughter and I - she started when she was 7.
We are a start up based in London. We created the Lovedesh Tee - possibly the "kindest" and "rarest" t-shirt in the world right now. It is made of 100% organic cotton and made in a worker owned factory. But so many damaged and derailed my work.
What Are We As A Mother & Daughter Doing?
Rather than spend our time sitting at home, we can urgently help. But in a way that is ethical. And fair.
We decided to create a global campaign so we can help rescue more modern day slavery victims. On the anniversary of Martin Luther King's I Have A Dream Speech.
WHY YOU NEED TO FUND LOVEDESH®
Lovedesh helps these key human rights & planetary causes.
(1) Modern day slavery & Sweatshops. Poorest artisans and garment & factory workers in the unfair, unethical global supply chain with focus on the emerging economies (eg. Bangladesh, Cambodia, Palestine, Kashmir) and regions in conflict. Covid-19 means millions will go hungry and homeless.

Here is the Lovedesh Tee - which you can buy right now - to help me get funded.
(2) ARTISANS, GARMENT & FACTORY WORKERS in the fashion & beauty supply chain with focus on the emerging economies (eg. Bangladesh, Cambodia, Palestine, Kashmir) and regions in conflict. As millions will go hungry and homeless.
Millions of garment workers in Bangladesh and others in SE Asia have been going hungry and homeless.
30 March 2020.
"A humanitarian crisis is unfolding in Bangladesh, with the fate of 4.1 million garment workers in the hands of western fashion brands, who have reportedly cancelled over $2.8 billion in orders as the COVID-19 crisis escalates." Read this Forbes Article by Fashion Journalist Brooks Robert Islam.
We believe in circular economy and in sweat-free production. And why we like to reuse, repair and recycle where possible. And why we have taken the lead. To launch our campaign. And using #IRemember1136 to be kinder to our planet .
(2) Our planet is under threat. Victims Of Domestic Violence in UK and around the world. As millions could die, suffer trauma and be at risk. As well as oceans and wildlife.
We are a British mother and daughter design duo based in London. On a mission to protect our planet. We have been working for over 10 years to fight modern day slavery, climate change and poverty. We want to open up a Lovedesh store in London, that is our dream.
Please donate now. And share, share share as we cannot do this all alone.
