Ethics are the New Black

Press/Media: Research

Description

Every piece of clothing we own has a story, whether it is made of cotton grown in a field, or polyester pumped out of an oil rig. Our choices dictate what story the clothes tell, and it is our duty to ensure we minimise our impact on humanity.

Buying a new dress or jacket is no longer a simple undertaking. The customer and the designer are both participants in the fashion supply chain, the garment life cycle and perhaps unconsciously linked by their ethical choices.
