Emma Watson’s People Tree Final Collaboration

Emma Watson has launched her third and final People Tree collection. The collection includes sweet dresses in gingham, florals and polka-dots; playsuits; harem pants; and more. Of the design process and experience, Watson said:

“The design process continued with me trying on each and every piece to get the fits just as I wanted them and then I visited Bangladesh to see the clothing actually being made and meet the people making it.
