"Since the fist day I launched Vanteelabel my perception of using and discovering sustainable brands has helped me find extraordinary people along the way like Laura founder of Victoria Paris. There is not doubt that when a woman has determination, nobody can stop her."
Fashion revolution is a global movement of people who make the fashion industry work. We are the people who wear clothes. And we are the people who make them.
We are designers, academics, writers, business leaders, policymakers, brands, retailers, marketers, producers, makers, workers and fashion lovers. We are the industry and we are the public. We are world citizens. We are Fashion Revolution.
If we start talking about this, if we begin to understand that our privileges can be used to impart privileges to others, then we might just change this culture of excess and enter a period where we can still buy things, but things that have meaning. Things that are available and affordable and that afford a decent life to the people who make them.
We love fashion, but we don’t want our clothes to come at the cost of people or our planet. Understanding where clothes are made, who makes them, and in what conditions, is vital (literally). Asking that brands disclose the provenance of their clothing is an important first step: and by provenance we don’t just mean the country of origin, we mean that we want to know the village, the factory, the sewing machine, the hands that made those clothes. It starts with a simple question; #whomademyclothes?
Because it’s not just about Made In Italy, or Made In China, or Made In India.
We ask you to look out for fashion that are Made In Dignity.Text via Fashion Revolution
