There are over seven billion people on earth, and each and every one of us have to put on clothes before we head out of the door, how much thought do you give to what you wear? The world of fashion is gargantuan and when it comes to deciding what to wear your choice is just as large.
But fashion is more than just the latest trend, it’s a positive philosophy and can even be used as a tool to improve the world and the human beings who live in it. It’s about fostering an industry that values people and has high regard for the environment, whilst maintaining a level of creativity, producing clothing that’s exciting to wear. Unfortunately, not all of those in the industry adopt a healthy attitude towards being eco-friendly, and it’s time this lack of respect for nature was stamped out once and for all.
That’s where Fashion Revolution comes in - designers, academics, writers, business leaders, policymakers, brands, retailers, marketers, producers, makers, workers and fashion lovers. These are people from every corner of the world who believe in working together to improve the way clothes are sourced, created and expended. People who want clothing to be made in safely, cleanly and fairly. People just like you and I, who care about what we wear. It’s all about taking ownership, and only leaving a small environmental footprint – using materials frim sustainable sources, such as 100% organic cotton (Global Organic Textile Standards -GOTS certified). If the phrase you are what you wear is true, then we want to be wearing fashionable streetwear and we don’t want to do it at a cost to this planet.
Fashion Revolution Week is fast approaching, and April brings with it a new campaign #whomademyclothes, where brands and clothing producers invite us to check out their supply chain and are proud to tell us #Imadeyourclothes. Transparency is key in the fashion industry, if we can see how clothes are made and by whom, then we can make responsible and informed choices about the clothes on our backs. Let’s make sure we join the fashion revolution, respect nature and human rights and buy from ethical brands who really care.
