Bangladesh is geographically far away from us, but the garments, which are produced there by Western companies (the names we know all too well), we all have in our wardrobe. Fast-paced fashion trends, unbeatable low prices & Co. lead to unreflected mass consumption. But as it is so beautiful: Fast fashion is not free – someone is paying somewhere. And so we ask ourselves and the labels now whomademyclothes? For fff Future Fashion Forward, my dear Fairfashion blogger colleagues have delivered a few quotes on the occasion of the Fashion Revolution Week – my favorites I have integrated here. All the others are here
“Buy less, choose well, make it last” – Vivienne Westwood has put the idea of changing consciousness in a few words very well. Because we are honest – how many favorite pieces does each of us have in the wardrobe? For my part, I have drastically reduced my consumption and am happier than before. The Fashion Revolution is not about abandonment, but by conscious consumption – usually by fashion labels that produce ethically and ecologically correct. Some of these great labels have already been portrayed
Fairness is never out of fashion.
More awareness of the buyer and more transparency, social responsibility and ecologically responsible production on the part of the manufacturers – the world-wide organization Fashion Revolution has made its mark on the market with creative projects such as the social project of whomademyclothes and an XL commitment, to make the fashion industry more social and ecological, and to make consumers more conscious of how to buy clothing. In memory of the victims of Rana Plaza and to move the fashion labels to more transparency, we ask ourselves and the fashion label (not only) therefore in the Fashion Revolution Week from 24 to 29 April whomademyclothes?
An overview of the events of the Fashion Revolution Week, such as the big clothes exchange campaign in the b-lage in Hamburg, exciting panel discussions such as re:fash: dialogue – moneyfashionpower in Berlin and the launch of the new Fashion Revolution video can be found at Fashion Revolution Germany
