Introducing Fashioning an Ethical Industry

Fashion connects us to people across the world. Fashion students - the next generation of industry players - can have a role in transforming the industry so that in the future beautiful clothes are produced whilst respecting the rights of people and the planet.

This short film, which is available to watch online, introduces Fashioning an Ethical Industry and the work the project has been doing with fashion schools, colleges and universities to equip them with the tools and resources to teach their students about ethical issues. It features interviews with representatives from London College of Fashion, Centre for Sustainable Fashion, Traid, Soil Association, Asia Floor Wage and Bangladeshi Garment Workers.

The film was shot in spring 2010 at Fast Forward, the project's international conference, held at the Rich Mix Arts Centre in London and Fashion Victims, an event held at University of the West of England for 14 - 18 years olds. You can learn more on the Fashioning an Ethical Industry website.
