Fashion Revolution Week 2019

Oops, something went wrong!

This week is #FashionRevolution week 2019.

Here at The Fashion Exchange we are totally behind this initiative and wanted to share with you some ideas for the week ahead from Fashion Revolution - please spread the word and visit their site]

If we are to really address the magnitude of fashion’s impact, we must remember that the most sustainable clothing is that which we already own. This Fashion Revolution week, it’s as important to ask #WhoMadeMyClothes as it is to remember that #LovedClothesLast.

A core part of our campaign this year is the inseparable link between the human and planetary costs of fashion. If we are to address fashion’s transgressions, such as gender inequality, carbon emissions, transparency and working conditions, we cannot tackle these issues in isolation. 

In fashion’s globalised supply chain, we are often told that our power as citizens exists only in our ability to selectively consume. Yet, our ability to enact change exists not only in what we buy, but in the way we value the clothing we already own. We must remember that #LovedClothesLast.

Let’s ask questions and demand answers, but let’s also spread the love for the things that hang inside our wardrobes.
